And we're off!

YFoEE Summer Camp #7 has started! We are in a hostel in a beautiful forest in the north of the Netherlands. We have already had sessions to introduce Young Friends of the Earth Europe and Young Friends of the Earth Africa. We have heard stories from participants from Armenia, Russia, South Africa, Mozambique and elsewhere. We have discussed our hopes, our expectations, laid out our rules for the camp and our space. We have played lots of games, tried desperately to learn over 50 names and made lots of new friends.
