Portraying the refugee situation we've witnessed since summer 2015 as a 'migrant crisis' (as is often done by the media and by politicians) is incorrect. It is a humanitarian crisis and a moral crisis for the European Union. Closing borders, racial profiling, deportations and xenophobia are all manifestations of this crisis.

Young Friends of the Earth Europe is a grassroots network of young people and youth organisations working collectively for social and environmental justice on a local, national and European level. We organise events and inspire young people to take action on issues ranging from climate change, food and agriculture and education for sustainability – to ensure the voices of young people are heard in Europe and beyond.
