In the framework of the Growing Together project, Young Friends of the Earth Europe, invites European Youth to the online training programme on Food Sovereignty. After the cancellation of the physical training in Belgium, its online version will take place from 5th to 9th June 2020!
Friends of the Earth Malta believes that Maltese farmers deserve more support, and that they have a lot to learn and teach each other. With this in mind, they organised a series of five sessions in Floriana, in the south-east of the country, called "From Farmers to Farmers" where rural youth were encouraged to come together and learn from each other.
Targeting the full- and part-time farmers and agriculture enthusiasts, the participants discussed and shared their practices with each other.
Conversations in activist groups can often be tough - small disagreements can bubble up into conflicts, and derail what you're trying to achieve. How do you stop this happening?
During a recent workshop, YFoEE activists learned how to use nonviolent communication to mediate conflicts in groups.
Nonviolent communication is based on empathy and on listening and understanding other's arguments and points of view. This toolkit below explains how to use it for in your groups via tools and exercises.

Ungdom NOAH/Young Friends of the Earth Denmark continued their series of food sovereignty road trips with four Sustainable City Tours across the country.
How do we teach young adults about food sovereignty during the long Danish autumn and winter? How do we talk about food and supplies with short production chains when all food in winter is shipped in from far away?
Last summer, Young Friends of the Earth Europe, together with BUNDjugend (YFoE Germany) held a 9-day training event: 'Training for Trainers: Inclusive Climate Justice Work'.
We ran workshops on addressing racism, centering feminism, tackling power and recognising privilege - all designed to make our climate justice movement open and accessible to all so we can win.
Last week, 40 young activists from Global 2000/Friends of the Earth Austria joined the largest food sovereignty protest in Germany - the "Wir-haben-es-satt" (we are fed up) demonstration.
The 10th edition of the protest took place in Berlin, with more than 25.000 people from various organisations and backgrounds gathering in the German capital to demand a just and sustainable agrarian transformation.
The Court of Appeals in Oslo today made its judgement on the Norwegian climate lawsuit, which had been brought by a number of plaintiffs including Natur og Ungdom/Young Friends of the Earth Norway. While the Norwegian Court rightly upholds the Constitution which guarantees everyone's right to a healthy environment, it doesn't acknowledge the environmental boundaries breached by awarding 10 oil drilling licenses in the Arctic.
Over the last couple of weeks, Friends of the Earth Malta ran a series of "Know Your Food" workshops in collaboration with a young farmer, Emanuela from the Veg Box.
About 20 urban citizens participated in five sessions that focused on different topics. This was a space for young people to meet, discuss food systems and food sovereignty while meeting different farmers and apiculturists along the way.
Participants learned about how food is grown, how to plan a garden, preparing and preserving food, and understanding seasonality.
Role-playing exercises are great. Non-violent communication (NVC) is even better. Combine them in the right way and a seed for societal change has been planted. Let us try to explain why...
