Open call for "Youth Workers for Sustainable Organisations".

Project Description:

This training is intended for youth workers and other individuals that work with youth. The main idea of the project is to equip individuals with the knowledge and skills for behavioural change in themselves, and in youth that they work with, towards more sustainable and environmentally just way of being.

The activities we want to carry out are directly linked to the profile of the participants. 

  • The first phase - The training will focus on issues on the field of sustainability in our organizations and aim to find solutions and alternatives that we can implement in our everyday life. We will also address various skills that will help participants to implement changes and address the issues in their own organization or local environment.
  • The second phase - In the period between trainings participants will carry out a small project/event/campaign that will address the topics of the first training. The participants will try to make at least one sustainable change in their own personal habits.
  • In the third phase - The second training will focus on sharing experiences gained in the meantime and preparing guidelines for youth workers and youth organizations to help them with sustainable changes.
  • In the last, forth phase we will evaluate the project and suggest follow-up activities.
