Working Groups (WGs) are people who have gathered:
- To work on a project, such as a campaign, or an event. These WGs are usually not ongoing, but come together for a short period of time.
- To discuss and address an issue, such as the spread of HIV/AIDS, or climate change, or women’s rights, etc. These WGs can lead to a statement being produced and presented to the Congress, which debates and decides whether GYG should officially endorse statements.
- Because they are interested in one aspect of GYG, such as the fund raising, or communication with members, translating (Babel Pool) etc.
Working Groups are a great way to get involved in GYG and work with your counterparts from around the world. Every young Green activist is invited to join one, and their work is conducted mainly over the internet.
If you are interested in starting a new Working Group or have any question, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with an explanation of your idea. Further information will then be provided.
Current Working Groups:
NEW Structures and Procedures Working Group (SPWG)
It is a great pleasure to introduce our new Structures and Procedures Working Group. The members and corresponding regions are as follows:
Africa – Sandy Kouame, Hussayn Toure and Lesley Tam
Asia – Laÿna Droz and Ahim Sigdel
Americas – Travis Cristal and Ian Soutar
Europe – Alice Hubbard, Tariq Khan and Julius Rupprecht
Over the coming months the working group will be investigating GYG Structures and Procedures, identifying problems and suggesting solutions. In particular, the Working Group will focus on key areas in need of reform, such as defining what GYG is what it does, strengthening regional coordination and reforming regional set-up, knowledge transfer and organising a more diverse range of events. The Working Group will work closely with the GYG Steering Committee, and together they will put together a report that will encompass all findings and suggested solutions.
If you have any enquiries about this working group, please do not hesitate to email email@example.com.
