Movement of the Young Greens in the Czech Republic is relatively new, created in early 2001. One of its founders, Martin Soukup 27letý lawyer says he was to establish a similar movement resulted in dissatisfaction with the then leadership of the Greens: "Contacts with foreign Greens seek a minimum, while foreign Greens in the majority of Western European countries play an important role in politics, the European Parliament is even a fourth strongest political faction. When we coincidentally met with young green from Germany, Belgium, Finland, etc., occurred to us that the Greens are successful and more closely connected with the younger generation and the civil sector, than it was at that time with us. In addition, organizations operate virtually everywhere Young Greens, either directly as part of a political party or civic organization as green. "But the Green Party leadership was not supportive of these efforts, while refusing to mediate and national contacts of young green. Immediately after its founding, the movement incorporated into the Federation of Young European Greens (FYEG, www.fyeg.org), which comprises about 40 different groups from almost all European countries, from the numerous and wealthy Gruen Jugend (Germany) to small groups in Macedonia, Albania, etc.. The Federation maintains a network of contacts, coordinating international campaigns and organizes exchange meetings.
Filling Movement: The main goal of the association, under its statutes to find ways to sustainable development, public information, forming ideas of young people and their involvement in the management of public affairs. The main events include the organization of discussions and workshops, and major information projects on the one hand and the formulation of policy statements and programs on the other. We can say that about half of the members of the Young Greens are more activist dedicated to specific projects and the other half is involved in the formation of political attitudes and promote green policies as a whole. „This year, for example, Young Greens in Sumava organized large international summer camp for young people from eight countries in Europe,“ says Martin Soukup, "the project focused on forest ecology from the theoretical and practical terms. Last members to coordinate movements in the Czech Republic a great promotional baton bicycle BIKE + 10, which was aimed at raising awareness of the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg. "
Relations between young green and the Greens are following its reform very helpful and friendly. Both entities (movement and political party) wearing formal or de facto independent, they are two separate entities. Green Party Chairman John Lamb attended the November council of the Young Greens, the party and do everything together with movement, including jointly prepare an election campaign to the European Parliament elections in the Czech Republic will take place in 2004. Many association members are also members of the Green Party.
Young Greens may not see the universities as much as some other politically motivated youth associations. However, the campus operates, organize discussions, workshops and longer-term projects. Not trying to undergraduates involved in politics. Students are one of the target groups of the movement, in addition to learning because they can find time for an interesting discussion. Some might just find a way to involve themselves in shaping and influencing the quality of life for us.
