Despite the ideals and the efforts of several generations to stop wars, the reality is that armed conflicts are still ravaging societies worldwide, including in Europe and on Europe’s borders. These ongoing wars bring about tremendous misery for those affected, they erase the future perspectives of any young people living in those societies, and they force people to flee, often to societies that might not even welcome victims of war.

The Federation of Young European Greens, are an organisation and a movement committed to going to the roots of problems and creating, as well as practicing, sustainable long-term solutions. In that spirit are organising a seminar titled “Resistance is Fertile” on 24-29 March, 2017 in Liverpool, UK. The seminar is supported by the European Youth Foundation of the Council of Europe and European Green Party.

The project aims to empower youth organisations, in particular Young Greens, to strengthen Europe’s role in peacebuilding internationally.

The seminar is linked to the congress of Global Young Greens taking place on 30 March – 2 April. The selected participants are expected to participate in the congress as well.


Activists from the age bracket of 16-32;

Young people coming from the former or current conflict areas or disadvantaged backgrounds.


All costs of the programme (including food, accommodation, travel and visa costs) will be covered by the organisers;

Selected participants will be asked to pay the participation fee of the seminar in the amount of EUR 50.
