Core Objectives

EYFA has three core objectives at the centre of everything we do:

  • Capacity building: Supporting groups develop the skills to gain access to the tools, funding and training to articulate, debate and enact their ideas.
  • Civic engagement and participatory processes: Supporting grassroots groups to critically engage with existing decision-making processes and politics, while also developing egalitarian and participatory alternatives.
  • East-West cooperation: Developing closer cooperation through joint initiatives and the sharing of ideas, histories and experiences amongst grassroots groups working in Eastern and Western Europe.
