If you want to get active with the Green Youth Cologne, there are several possibilities:
Come visit us at our Aktiventreffen (active meeting)!
We meet every Wednesday at 7 pm. If you have any questions, want the access data for our meetings or the place we meet at, send an e-mail to email@example.com. We usually meet in the Green Office next to the Ebertplatz. The underground stop is right next to the office. The tram lines 12, 15, 16 and 18 stop there.
Take part in the activities!
Help us convince people on the street of our ideas. Instead of standing around at a boring stall, we organise various campaigns
Becoming a member
Why do grassroots democrats need a board? We asked ourselves the same question. Our executive board is therefore not responsible for political decisions. In our organisation, not only the general meeting (twice a year) is above the board, but also the weekly active meeting.
The executive committee is not only mainly responsible for organisational activities, but it is also supposed to encourage debates in terms of content within the Green Youth Cologne. Furthermore, the board is a contact point for all new members and interested parties. It represents the Green Youth Cologne to the outside world. If you have any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org
Since the general meeting on 23 October 2021 the board consists of eight people:
Phi Burghardt, Lea Winterscheidt (speakers*), Luca Mehlig (political director), Malte Braun (treasurer) and the four assessors* Daria Plotnikov, Anke Niggemann, Liam Dorn and Jurek Schülke.
Much of the content work in the Green Youth Cologne takes place in commissions.
Commissions are open to all people who want to participate. Once a month, instead of an active meeting, a so-called participation meeting (Beteiligungstreffen – BT) takes place, where the commissions meet and a low-threshold entry is possible!
Currently, the following commissions exist and they are involved in our further development of content and planning of theme-specific activities:
- Education Commission
- Anti-racism Commission
- Intersectional Feminism Commission
- Digital Commission
- Sea/Ocean Commission
- Ecology Commission
- Queer Commission
- Commission for Local Government Politics
- Mental Health Commission
In addition, there are commissions that support the Green Youth Cologne in terms of organisation, or structural development:
- Commission for Election Campaigns
Statutes of the Green Youth Cologne
The GREEN YOUTH COLOGNE is committed to provide young people with a political forum in society through educational work, political training and campaigns.
As an ecological, queer-feminist, social and left-liberal youth association, we stand for sustainable politics in Cologne and contribute our ideas to the party BÜNDNIS 90/DIE GRÜNEN KÖLN as well as to public political discourse. We maintain an inclusive and careful interaction among each other.
We strive for a society free of nationalism, anti-semitism, sexism as well as racism and oppose all forms of discrimination.
