Who We Are

EYFA is a European network of individuals, grassroots organisations and collectives working to transform communities in their approach to environmental, social, political and economic positions.

EYFA’s main aim is to encourage young people’s initiative and autonomy.

EYFA provides a platform and practical support for new ideas to grow into their full potential.

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 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.

EYFA always puts effort into including youth from all corners of the continent, from diverse social, geographical and cultural backgrounds.
