CALL OUT – Steering Committee Member



About Global Young Greens

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. We work 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,
  •   to forge strong links between young green organizations and individuals,
  •   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.

What is the GYG Steering Committee?

The Steering Committee is the second highest decision-making body of the Global Young Greens which is why it is important to have both experienced and active people involved. Its primary responsibility is to implement decisions of the Congress and to steer the network on behalf of its members. The Steering Committee is regionally and gender balanced, and consists of at least 50% women per region.

We are looking for one passionate young green from the region of Europe, due to the resignation of one of our Europe representatives. This new member will take the role of a regional coordinator.

How to apply?

Online voting instructions will be released prior to the vote.
