YEN in 2021

Even though we can not meet for regular seminars YEN is still here to offer you inspiration and opportunities to connect with youth from minorities around Europe.



In 2021 we are “Changing the Narrative”!



Changing the Narrative?

Every day we are surrounded by stories and narratives that influence how we think about other people, about society and the world. Most of the time we only listen to those who are the loudest, the most powerful or have the best networks. Sadly, this often means that only one-sided, over-simplified or wrong stories are told about marginalised communities. This is exactly why it is important to understand and critically question how narratives and stories are written and distributed. We want to take a closer look at the stories, that we tell about ourselves as individuals, that minorities tell about themselves and at the stories that society tells about us. We will learn and explore how we can write and tell our own stories.
