At the European Youth Forum’s General Assembly in Novi Sad 21st to 25th November 2018 our Education and Fundraising Manager Pia Winstén, successfully ran for the European Youth Forums Financial Control Commission.
Pia was joint at the event by Anja Mager, our Special Interest board member. For those of you who don’t know, the European Youth Forum (YFJ) is a platform for youth organisations in Europe with tens of millions of young people from all over Europe represented through 104 international youth organisations and youth councils.
The campaigning went smoothly and finally Pia was declared one of the spots on the commission with 1190 votes. The strengthened representation of RYEurope in YFJ will help to increase the rural voice and raise the rural point of view in the most influential European youth organisation.
