The European Green Deal is about improving the well-being of people. Making Europe climate-neutral and protecting our natural habitat will be good for people, planet and economy. No one will be left behind.
“The European Green Deal is our new growth strategy. It will help us cut emissions while creating jobs.” Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission “We propose a green and inclusive transition to help improve people’s well-being and secure a healthy planet for generations to come.” Frans Timmermans, Executive Vice-President of the European Commission.
Goals of the project:
– Promote the European Green Deal
– Increase active citizenship between young people
– Raise awareness and sensitivity to the environment changing and possible scenarios;
– Spread knowledge and understanding of the environment quality and links with quality of life;
– Develop skills on recognition of environment issues and classification;
– Participate in activities that lead to analyze the problem and find practical solutions.
– Introduce young people to new sustainable approaches towards Climate change
A training course (TC) will be implemented and the countries involved in the activities are Italy, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Spain, Lithuania, Greece.
The purpose of the training course “Green for the Win” is:
– To educate young people regarding climate change, global warming and sustainability;
– To stimulate participants’ sense of initiative aimed at raising awareness on the topic and educate youngsters as regards
– To promote the NFE methodologies/tools;
– To create the “Green for the Win Toolguide” Toolkit of NFE tools that were used and created during this mobility.
During the TC, all national teams will create short videos (no longer than 3 minutes), will set up and start a Social Campaign, that will be later part of the workshops they will implement in their home towns.
TREE is based on the specific objectives pursued by the Erasmus+ Programme in the Youth Field:
– improve the level of key competences and skills of young people, including those with fewer opportunities, as well as to
promote participation in democratic life in Europe and the labor market, active citizenship, intercultural dialogue, social
inclusion, and solidarity.
– foster quality improvements in youth work, in particular through enhanced cooperation between organizations in the youth field and/or other stakeholders.
The first 2 days will be used for introduction of the participants, their sending organisation, the hosting organisation and the Erasmus+ Programme. The next days the participants will have the chance to join activities that use Non Formal Education methodology in order to learn more with the topic of the TC. The last day there will be the official closing of the project and the Youthpass Ceremony.
During the mobility 2 intercultural night will take place so the participants get the chance to know more about the coulture of their fellow participants. The participants will be introduced to the European Green Deal and they will talk about the situation in their own countries, about what causes the climate change and what they would do as a team that represents their country.
With the help of the trainer they will learn about sustainable approaches in everyday life towards climate change and they will be involved in some climate change games in order to understand better how climate change is working and affecting our everyday lives. With this experience the participants will become more aware about the consequences of being an environmentally irresponsible person and what they should do to change that. During the TC they will also have the change to brainstorm in small teams, create and present to the rest of the participants a workshop on the topic that they would like to implement after the mobility once they are back in their hometown. The participants will have the
time to express their expectations of the TC and the chance to create a social campaign on the topic of the project. Also will be introduced to other cultures during the Intercultural nights.
Youthpass Certificate: Every participant will receive a Youthpass certificate at the end of the project. Youthpass is a tool to document and recognise learning outcomes from youth work activities. It is available for projects funded by Erasmus+ as a part of the European Commission’s strategy to foster the recognition of non-formal learning, putting policy into practice and practice into policy.
Intercultural Night: In order for us to get to know each other better and, most of all, to discover more about our different countries, we will set up an intercultural night to celebrate our diversity. There you will share with the group interesting things about your country, please don’t forget to bring your flag and other things that may allow us to see, listen or taste your culture. We are talking about food, music, dancing, drinks, images, videos, maps, etc. that may allow us to find out more about your country. You can prepare the activity names, thematic parties in which you will present your country (if needed, you can use the projector).
