The Young Friends of the Earth Europe summer camp 2011

14 July 2011

Ónod Hungary - 14- 19th July 2011

This year's summer camp took place in the little town of Ónod in north west Hungary, hosted by our Young Friends of the Earth group in Hungary. 50 people from the Young Friends of the Earth Europe network came representing 20 different countries and spent five days together learning and sharing the campaigning work we all do, and getting some great ideas, plans and skills for the campaigns YFoEE will be running in the near future.

Being in Ónod this year was particularly special. It's a village that over recent years has experienced devastating floods and increasingly hot summers, making the effects of climate change well known to the local community. We had the great pleasure to be hosted and looked after by the local community and in particular the local young people and local mayor, who joined many of our sessions and took part in a joint intercultural evening between YFoEE and Ónod. We hope to have struck up a long and lasting friendship between Friends of the Earth and Ónod!
