The Global Young Greens is an emerging youth-led organization supporting and uniting the efforts of young people from a green-alternative spectrum around the world. It works towards ecological sustainability, social justice, grassroots democracy and peace.
Our objectives are
- to empower young people within the framework of participatory democracy,
- to create a space for young people to be active without being dominated by older generations,
- to address inequalities between organizations and individuals,
- to forge strong links between sectors and organizations and
- to further the Green principles on planet Earth.
Our activities include finding opportunities for young people to get involved in our work, linking individuals and organizations with each other for various purposes as well as carrying on campaigns as GYG.
