GEF is hosting a European policy day at this year’s FYEG summer camp! Together with selected participants, we will explore what the politics of mental health look like at a national, regional, and European level and imagine radical solutions for a healthier, more democratic society.
About the Event
This youth-focused summer camp will consist of workshops and discussions exploring mental health in all of its political relevance, including how such issues disproportionally affect the oppressed and activists, and its relation to freedom of expression, right to protest, and access to information in Europe.
GEF, with the support of our partner FYEG, is providing selected participants with a crash course on how public policies and civil society actions address mental health at various levels, including on a European scale. Participants will be challenged to use their creativity, critical thinking, and activist skills to design the green visions and policy solutions of the future–addressing mental health and the fight against oppression across Europe.
