Between Feb 5-8 was held the annual meeting of YSAFE, the European Youth Network of IPPF. The topic of this year’s meeting was Sustainable Development and Sexual and reproductive Health and Rights. The training was focused at helping the participants to understand what sustainable development is and how to apply it to their work as peer educators and sexual and reproductive rights advocates. This meeting was special because for the first time we had the chance to combine the event wit a month-long online education, which took place on the free online platform Schoology (https://www.schoology.com)

The Management board of YSAFE aims to facilitate the access to information, ideas and development potential by the means of the global network. Internet platforms are a key medium for the organization which covers 39 countries in Europe and Central Asia.
YSAFE strives to improve the Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) of young people at national and regional level in Europe and Central Asia by:
- Ensuring meaningful youth participation in decision making and implementation at the level of the Member Associations, the Regional Office and the governance of IPPF EN and IPPF;
- Strengthening the capacity of its members to make their voice heard on SRHR;
- Facilitating the exchange of knowledge, skills and best practices;
- Joining forces with other youth organisations in initiatives at national, regional and international level.
As members of YSAFE the volunteers can participate in national and regional campaigns, projects and trainings. For more information:
