Practically, this means following products and services:
IYNF mission is toconnect and inspire Young Naturefriends for living values of respect, solidarity, equality, sustainability, and love and care for nature.
Youth leadersare the primary target group of most IYNF activities. In various capacities - as representatives of their organisation, group or on their own behalf, we design our meetings and activities mainly to fit to the needs and interest of the youth leaders and youth workers. As a membership-based organisation, we primarily target to the youth workers and youth leaders involved in our member organisations or the Naturefriends movement at large.
Local groupsare target of ournetworking programmesthrough which we provide to them opportunities to set up a project (mainly a youth exchange) and succesfully organise and folow it up.
IYNFmember organisationsare usually large federations themselves, consisting of many regional and local groups. Our programme to member organisations involves mainly the external representation, exchange of information and common work towards the youth leaders and local groups.
Young Europeansare certainly a wide and blurry target group and we don't really aim to adress them all. However those, that feel inspired by IYNF values and our working style are invited and welcome to our activities and trainings.
