Since the first nationwide anti-noise demonstrations took place last October in Frankfurt, rumours of an emerging national movement against airport expansion have grown. So what's up in Germany?

"There is a place where heaven and earth share the same stage..."

Let me take you on a journey. Open your mind to see and experience the beauty and drama of a unique and vulnerable place. Let your imagination spread its wings. Now fly with me.

YFoE Ireland recently had their Annual General Meeting (AGM) (see photos here: http://on.fb.me/IZlpPW). It took place in Seomra Spraoí in Dublin, an autonomous social centre, which served us beautiful vegan food for lunch and dinner. The AGM was an opportunity for young environmentalists to give their input into the direction in which they would like YFoE Ireland to focus. It was also an opportunity for us to learn more about YFoE, the work it does, the campaigns it runs and how the organisation hopes to grow.

Food@Farm

In April the very first Food@Farm workshop of this year was organised by Young Friends of the Earth Netherlands (JMA) in Leiden. For this project, first year students are invited to come along to an organic farm where they can see where their food actually comes from. Even though this visit is very interesting and gives an accurate view of what it means to be an organic farmer in the Netherlands, it does not provide the tools for the students to change the way they eat. Therefore, we also give a workshop how to cook vegetarian and according to the seasons!
