ACTIVE

ACTIVE - sobriety, friendship and peace (formerly "EGTYF, European Good Templar Youth Federation") is a non-governmental umbrella organisation gathering European youth temperance organisations. ACTIVE is member of the Youth Forum Jeunesse and cooperates with IOGT International.

The main aim of Active is peace and tolerance in the world. Active considers alcohol and other drugs one of the main reasons for violence and conflicts in today's world and therefore members of Active promote a drug-free lifestyle by their own abstinence--to prove that having fun, making friends, and being free is possible without getting addicted and without any risk of hurting somebody or being hurt. Active provides the space for self-realisation, for making new contacts, for exchange projects, education and for being active on political level in order to make a difference. Active is a support for each national organisation in reaching the main common goal--peace and human dignity.

Activities

Political work on local, national and European level, training courses and social activities are the main activities of ACTIVE. It builds on international meetings, study sessions and workshops in order to foster intercultural learning and mutual understanding as well as to educate its members in terms of democracy, human rights or alcohol and other drugs. ACTIVE recognizes that mutual understanding creates the foundation of equality and peace.

Every year 2-4 seminars are held:

*Spring 2007: "The secret of getting ahead is getting started"

*Winter 2006: "Designers of society - Designers of Future"

*Automn 2006: "Democracy - space for engagement"

A summer camp takes place in one of the member organizations' country every summer, the congress every other summer, and winter camps every year.
