VEFI group

VEFI – let’s make youth exchange more sustainable together!

VEFI is short for Vegan Environmental Focused International Group, which is as much a name as a promise. We are a young and small association based in Turku and Kokkola, facilitating EVS Projects for youngsters from all over Europe to come to Finland and experience a time of international exchange with a clear focus on sustainability. Doing this work is made possible by our association board, an international team with the shared passion to make a positive impact, however small, in the lives of young people who experience a world and a society that always seems on the brink of collapse.

In the course of our first active year we have organised different projects, found our footing in Finnish association work and are now ready to take off and fly – not with a plane, of course. On the contrary, as fast as a high-speed train, we are starting into the new year with plans of expanding our network, reinforcing our local publicity in Finland and, most importantly, organising many events, and projects which bring together people who share a passion for the environment.
