Dear Global Young Greens,
you are warmly invited to come to the 2nd Global Young Greens Congress! It will take place from 8th to 14th of August 2010 in Berlin, the capital of Germany.
If you come to the congress, you will have the opportunity to run for the board election, vote on our statutes and activities, and have your say in how this GYG will work. You’ll make loads of friends and will probably discuss until the sun rises again. I basically guarantee you’ll have the time of your life.
The first principle is that nobody gets a free trip to Germany. We expect all participants to fundraise for themselves. Global Young Greens will have a small central fund that may be used to assist participants who need it. For more information consult our website. But if you really want to attend the congress, then don’t count on that!
We recommend you to start the process as soon as possible – organisations need time to budget. If you leave it until later in the year could leave you out of options. So the sooner you get started, the more chance you’ll have.
Global Young Greens will ensure accommodation and food during the congress. There will be a participation fee to partly cover those costs: Participants from the Global North will need to pay €180, whereas participants from the Global South will have to pay €30.
Member organisations of GYG should name their delegates preferably by 1st of June 2010.
So, how to go about getting yourself to Germany? Luckily your prep team has put together an information pack to help you do exactly that.
And at any time if you need advice or are having trouble with anything, email us, and in emergencies call Franza.
