ABOUT THE PROJECT
Environmental issues impact everyone, transcending borders and languages. The younger generation, facing the brunt of climate change consequences, is actively concerned about the environment.
To address this, a shift in attitudes towards nature and pollution is essential. This Training Course provides a platform for proactive young individuals to collaborate, share experiences, and engage in activities that enhance their understanding of environmental challenges. Rooted in non-formal education, the program includes workshops, games, and collaborative activities, aiming to equip participants with practical skills for green activism.
ABOUT OUR GROUP
Our group was composed of young people from Georgia, Slovakia, Croatia, Bosnia, Czechia and Turkey.
A lot of people from our group are youth workers or they want to become. One of our missions was to learn and share sustainable practices in transport, office, activities, recycling, and reusing material
We learn through workshops made by the local community, hiking, walks, sharing useful strategies lowering our carbon footprint.
Another example is cultural night – every country has presented traditions, food, drinks, and interesting information.
We enjoyed a lot of workshops made by the local community – making bracelets from threads and crafting from clay.
And acro yoga workshop has to be mentioned as well. The session was about beauty of trust in our group at the very end of our project.
HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE PROJECT
One of the highlights was a hike where we could make our inputs if we were good at something connected to the topic and wanted to share. For example, we had an introduction to marine studies and, a presentation about trees and outdoor leadership.
