All 3 of our EVS volunteers invite you to this international evening on Thursday, 18.10. in NYimB. We’ve got their unique perspectives on the social justice movements in Russia, Ukraine and Spain. It’s gonna be an evening packed with content, so please come on time! We’ll also make space for questions and discussion, so bring your curiosity too!
(Note: we are not experts, just young activists, so we’re also open to input from other sources of knowledge/experiences)
The long-awaited video glossary is ready and we think it’s beautiful!
This movie was shot during international FLTI youth exchange “Unite! Young women* exploring labour rights” and reflects a mixture of theoretical content and personal experiences of isolation and alienation of the precarious life under neo-liberal capitalism.
On Thursday evening at 7pm in NYimB, we’ll be discussing a text ‘Why restorative justice?’ We’re happy for diverse opinions and perspectives to take part in the discussion. Our EVS volunteers are excited to debate alternative approaches to justice!
We’re screening the film The Invisible War (2012) tonight at NYimB at 7pm. There will be light snacks and a short discussion afterwards for those who are interested. See you there!
Join us this Thursday for the second event in the series ‘Connecting peace-building communities across Europe‘. This Thursday we’ll be discussing the text ‘Feminist Peace and Conflict Theory’ by Annette Weber together.
Don’t miss it! 19:00 at NYimB (please come whether you’ve had a chance to read the text in advance or not, we’re open to all levels of engagement)
Our project partners in Milano, Italy are looking for 2 volunteers who’d like to come for 3 months, starting in November 2018. The volunteer positions are at an alternative children’s bookshop and the hosts are very nice people!
What is the EYFA collective?
We are a small collective of activists that supports an informal network of grassroots groups across europe in their approach to social and environmental justice.
EYFA strives for a world based on social, environmental and economic justice, in which people feel empowered to act and raise their voices on the issues that affect their lives. EYFA works to challenge the dominant neoliberal social and economic system, while developing new anti-authoritarian ways of organising our communities based on environmental and social sustainability. EYFA projects are mainly for young people, serving as a catalyst for action on local and international levels. A special focus is put on providing access for groups to take part in international grassroots social movements.
