BUNDJugend/Young Friends of the Earth Germany: Don't be a Fossil Fool & anti-TTIP March

7 October 2015

A landmark in the campaign to scrap the the TTIP and CETA trade deals with the USA and Canada, was reached last night, as over 3 million EU citizens signed to call for and end to the agreements. After more than a year of hard work, the self-organised ECI (European Citizens' Initiative) against TTIP and CETA came to an end, after reaching every corner of Europe. Indeed, the quorum was surpassed in 23 countries, more than the triple of what is needed (seven countries) to submit an official ECI petition to the European Commission.

Young Friends of the Earth Europe is a grassroots network of young people and youth organisations working collectively for social and environmental justice on a local, national and European level. We organise events and inspire young people to take action on issues ranging from climate change, food and agriculture and education for sustainability – to ensure the voices of young people are heard in Europe and beyond.
