International Young Naturefriends (IYNF)

Since 1975 IYNF represents the international network of the young Naturefriends across Europe.  IYNF supports the work of its 16 member and 7 partner organisations, consisting of 120,000 individual young Naturefriends across more than 1000 local groups.

The organization fosters a sense of belonging of young Naturefriends to the international movement, promotes ideals of personal development and responsible and sustainable life in both social and natural environment and represents young Naturefriends on European level.

In its work, IYNF uses methods of non-formal, experiential and environmental education and intercultural learning, organizes capacity building, outdoor and amateur art activities and supports active citizenship by promotion of youth participation.  In addition, IYNF publishes books with topics related to the working field of the organisation.

The IYNF mission is to connect and inspire Young Naturefriends for living values of respect, solidarity, equality, sustainability, and love and care for nature.
