Project description:

Within the framework of Erasmus+ Programme, aimed to sensitize young people to take care and preserve our environment and biodiversity.

Together we will discover farms and the wild nature, we will learn about plants, herbs and fruits, we will deal with animals, insects and bees. In this adventure we will be accompanied by professional guides of our local partner “Le Guide”. Participants will acquire transversal skills such as the ability to adapt, to collaborate in groups and will understand better what is really important
for the preservation of the environment and the continuation of life on Planet Earth.

The youth exchange Biodiversity for Life, in line with the Erasmus+ program, intends to promote the 10th European Youth Goal of the EU Strategy “Sustainable Green Europe”: Achieve a society in which all young people are environmentally active, educated and able to make a difference in their everyday lives”.

Nowadays we consume in a way that our environment can’t handle. Society needs to act against climate change and the growing
environmental threats. But our society cannot solve a problem that it is not willing to acknowledge. That is why everyone including young people has to start taking responsibility for their actions, and impact on the life of future generations. Becoming sustainable is not a choice, it is an obligation.

That’s why we are going to discover, debate and experiment what to do to prevent climate change, reduction of biodiversity and other environmental damage, and to foster the protection of the natural environment, the sustainability and how to adopt eco-friendly behavior. 

Participants’ profile:

  • We expect 5 participants aged 18-23 + 1 group leader (preferably older than 23 yo and no upper age limits) from each partner, taking into consideration the gender balance, given the topic.
  • We are looking for young people who are interested in the topic, motivated, with a proactive attitude.
  • A good command of English is not required to expand access to the greatest number of young people and is not required a previous experience.
  • Instead, it is desirable that the group leader has a good level of English and that he/she has gained some previous experience in projects Erasmus+, in order to ensure an expert figure able to guide and support their group throughout the whole process, from preparation to the end of the dissemination activities.
