All Working Groups (WGs) of CDN are looking out for new members, which is why they decided to publish a joint call for new membership. At the moment there is one regional WG – RUMB, and three topical ones: Gender, Digital [X] and Alternative Urbanisation. They differ from one another in topics they discuss and work on, but what binds them all is a common Green vision of working towards a more inclusive, democratic, just and sustainable Eastern Europe. Bellow, you can read short descriptions of Working Groups, just to get acquainted with each of them 🙂
Gender WG – APPLY HERE
We are a group of diverse green activists from all over EE passionate about feminism, gender equality and LGBT+ rights. In the working group we have several topical priorities which define our objectives:
- Combating discrimination
- Gender Equality
- LGBT+ rights
However, we work on wide range of related topics: feminism, education, sex education&health, advocacy and making queer and feminist theories and discussions accessible to all people. We are passionate about creating a network of people committed to these ideas and aim to create a safe space for gender activists, feminists, queer people and young greens who wish to engage and learn within this framework.
Digital [X] – APPLY HERE
Do you want to be a part of or initiate activities for a better and free internet? Come and join us! At digital [x] we care about an open, diverse, and privacy-respecting online world. We’re also big fans of open source software and believe that human culture should be accessible to everyone. Anyone is welcome, and no technical knowledge is required. Whether you just want to discuss with like-minded people, start a campaign, organise a seminar, digital [x] is happy to welcome you.
Alternative Urbanisation – APPLY HERE
The Group serves as a platform for young people to discuss fair and innovative solutions for cities in Eastern Europe, through discussions, movies’ discussions, international projects and online campaigns. Through its activities and endeavours the Working Group aims to advocate for sustainable and just development of urban areas to voice the existing issues of accessibility, gender inequality and overall betterment of societies, particularly of Eastern Europe.
RUMB – APPLY HERE
RUMB stands for Russia, Ukraine, Moldova and Belarus working together on common problems and common solutions in this region. Currently, our working group consists of young people from the RUMB region with different backgrounds: students, lawyers, engineers, education workers, etc. But the will to participate in Green activism and thirst for changes are something we have in common. Therefore we are ready to apply our skills and knowledge to empower youth in our countries and make a first step for a better fair reality for all, despite the actual situation appears as it is.
