3. News from Member Organisations

Many groups in FYEG participated in the Forest Week, a project for putting
focus on forest protection throughout Europe. In the last issue of this
newsletter we reported from events in Belgrade, Serbia, with a local group
asking for support in protecting a park.

Now FYEG requests that all the groups that did actions connected to the
Forest Week send in reports of what happened, any images you may have,
possible media coverage and so on. Please contact the office at
FYEG at europarl.eu.int if you have anything to share!

Some other things going on:

The German Grüne Jugend are preparing an action day on ecological travel,
12th of August 2005.

The Dutch group Dwars are carrying out a campaign concerning warped
concepts of sexuality in the media and for breaking down conservative
representations of sex and sexuality. The campaign happens in the cities
of Utrecht, Leiden, Amsterdam, Nijmegen, Rotterdam, Maastricht and
Leeuwarden under the slogan is "can a man be a whore?"

this newsletter, please send it in to newsletter at fyeg.org.
