The Italian Group of Young Friends of the Nature was born in 2012 following the XXI congress of NFI in Graz,where the need was felt of creating of a body which since long time existed in other european countries and was still missing in Italy.The foundation of group of young friends was also advocated by IYNF,as the geographic origin of its national groups was mainly from North and Central Europe,while until that time representatives from more Southern Europe were missing..
GIAN-Giò is therefore member of International Young Naturefriends,being this an organization which coordinates and brings together all national young friends groups (www.iynf.org) whose following values and goals are shared by GIAN-Giò:
Solidarity,justice,democracy,peace and internationalism
Good care of land,direct encounter with the nature,sustainability and environmental education
Youth participation,personal development and non formal learning
Obviuosly these three sets of values are enriched by friendship and fun.
Each young fellow can join GIAN-Giò and the subscription of the card of the Italian association– permits also the access to the wide offer of international activities.
