Are you interested in learning more about mental health? This summer we’ll bring together young activists from all over Europe to explore links between systematic oppression and rights violations and the mental health of activists and young people. Would you like to join us? Apply now!
About the Event
This six-day summer camp will consist of insightful workshops and discussions exploring the topic of mental health in all of its political relevance. We will aim to unravel how such issues disproportionally affect oppressed individuals and communities as well as the activists fighting against the systems of oppression. We will also tackle other issues such as freedom of expression, right to protest, and access to information in Europe.
GEF will be organising a one-day summer school as part of this activity, with a particular focus on mental health in the European political context and how the green movement can play a role.
When: 23 – 28 July (arrival on July 22nd, departure on July 29th)
Where: France (exact location to be confirmed)
Who: We are looking for 40 young people between 15-35, residing in one of the Council of Europe member states, Belarus, Russia and Kosovo*. We welcome applications reflecting diversity in all forms; therefore we encourage applications from those who identify as women*, LGBTQIA+, POC, or with a disability or other health impairment.
Language: The main language of this activity will be English. Not being comfortable interacting in English should not prevent you from applying, as we will try finding a solution with you to support you.
Further information on cost, Covid guidelines, and travel and accommodation can be found here.
