*European Youth Conference "Youth in Exile" from 11th to 13th June 2015 in
Duisburg (please forward this mail to your internal mailing list and other
possible interested people)*

*Dear Friends, *

i am inviting you to the European Youth Conference "Youth in Exile" from
11th to 13th June 2015 in Duisburg,

 What is it about?

 Living an independent life, making decisions on one's own - that's what
emancipation is all about. But young people struggle more and more to
achieve this, because they are the ones suffering most from the impacts of
the economic, social, democratic and ecological Crisis in Europe. Current
policies, focusing on reducing public spendings cause cuts in education,
jobs and social support measures. This is already having a direct negative
effect on young people. Facing the fact that political measures concerning
young people are too often made without them or the organizations
representing them, it is not surprising that young people feel pushed out
of the society into exile. Young people aren't listened to, their voices
aren't heard or are silenced when their projects are being cut. A growing
number of young people faces decreasing salaries or payments, many are
forced to take a job in any place far from home, or to get back there
moving in again with their parents.

 Young people are being forced into Exile - Exile from participation, Exile
from labor, Exile from home. What can they expect from their future?

 To discuss this question, Terry Reintke MEP and the Greens in the European
Parliament invite you to the European Youth Conference "Youth in Exile" in
Duisburg. To do this we organized a three-day program, starting with a big
panel discussion on thursday. Following up we will discuss with young
people from all over Europe in different workshops, do street actions and
exchange our views and opinions in several panels. Our goal is not only
that young people from all over Europe discuss the question on how to
overcome their exile but also on how different (or not?) their living
conditions are.

 All Details in one place:

 When: Thursday, 11 June 6 p.m. till Saturday 13 June 3 p.m.

 Place of the Conference: Sportschule Wedau, Friedrich-Alfred-Str. 15,
47055 Duisburg, Germany
