Project Summary

With over 6 billion of us on Earth, our combined actions have a huge impact on the environment: climate change and plastic pollution are just the top of the spear and although the trend of going green is positively rising, we still have to work on it. As long as we are aware of our impact, we can act as individuals, or work together as group, joining forces to raise awareness and choose more sustainable lifestyles. The main objective of this youth exchange is to analyse our lifestyles in order to foster and spread the pursuit of new good practices with the aim of lessen our impact on the planet.
Who? 30 participants from 18 to 30 years old, from 6 different countries. 6 group leaders.

What? Analyse the impact of our lifestyle in the environment through different activities and acquire different tools to reduce it.

How? Non formal and experiential learning, workshops and activities. Experiencing sustainable alternatives and living in a rural place.

Why? We want to inspire people to change towards a lifestyle with less negative impact on our planet.
