Welcome to DWARS Amsterdam!
Voor Nederlands, ga naar Welkom bij DWARS Amsterdam!
Are you international and curious about us?
Hi! Welcome to DWARS Amsterdam! Are you interested in our movement and do you want to see if DWARS is for you? We organise a large variety of activities where it’s easy to join as someone who isn’t a member (yet). A few times a year we also organise a new-membersevening, but that isn’t something you have to wait for. The rest of the time we have loads of fun and interesting activities planned! Have a peek at our agenda to see if there’s anything interesting for you!
It’s one of our primary goals to have DWARS Amsterdam be as accessible as possible to all youth, even if you don’t speak Dutch, so that anyone and everyone can join our fight for a greener and more equitable Amsterdam and a greener and more equitable world. Want to drop by one of our Dutch events or actions? We’ll help you translate!
What is DWARS?
DWARS, GroenLinkse Jongeren is the Dutch independent political youth organisation affiliated with GroenLinks. GroenLinks (“GreenLeft”) is the green party in the Netherlands. We believe in a green, social and free society for everyone. The objective of our organisation is to familiarise young people with politics in a fun and engaging way. Furthermore, we try to influence Dutch politics through our contact with Groenlinks, the media and political actions. The national board is located in the DWARS office in Utrecht, at St. Jacobsstraat 12.
