Sitting in the rural Liberian village of Small Bong Mines, about to eat a meal at the house of one of my new colleagues at the Sustainable Development Institute -Friends of the Earth (FoE) Liberia- the voice of Celine Dion unexpectedly floated across the dead heat of the midday sun. 'Near, far, where ever you are,' she cried, 'my heart will go on'. The local radio station was commemorating the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, a terrible tragedy that cost the lives of 1,500 people in icy Atlantic waters.

Once upon a time, in a place not very far away, a dedicated group of activists had a brilliant idea: let's bring young people from across Europe together! To share ideas, make friends, and campaign together for planet and people. Young Friends of the Earth Europe grew, became older, and soon had many members from all four corners of Europe.

Sounds like a fairy tale? But it's true - this year we are five years old!


So, how will we celebrate? And how can you join the festivities?

It isn't very easy to put such an intense experience in just a few words, but I'll try.
