Welcome to the website of Jong Groen, the young greens in Flanders and Brussels. Jong Groen is a political youth organization that mobilizes young people around ecological issues. In Belgium, Jong Groen is affiliated with Groen, the Green party in Flanders and Brussels.
Jong Groen has grown into an organization of about 3.000 members, organized in local groups. The national organization consists of the Open Forum, the assembly of all members where our programme is decided upon and where the Board is elected. The Open Forum delegates the responsibility of the daily operation to the Board.
Jong Groen organizes actions and activities, and runs campaigns on a wide range of issues: climate change, education, employment, animal rights, green energy, public transport, etc. Our weekends and summercamps are the highlights of the year. They are an opportunity for young greens in Flanders and Brussels to get to know each other, to exchange ideas, to find inspiration for new actions and off course to have some fun.
In an international context, Jong Groen is a member organisation of FYEG, the Federation of Young European Greens.
