Project description:

The suggestion and the idea for this project came from Gutta-club and their experience of organising a local project “Climate Ambassadors”. During this project Gutta-club organised many environmental educational events on various environmental issues. The team worked a lot on the topic of plastic pollution and had strong desire to educate youth and children to use less plastic in everyday life.

Gutta-club and YEE would like to organise an international training course for environmental youth organisations. We want to bring together youth workers who want to develop their competences on educating public about plastic pollution and share their previous experience with colleagues from different countries.

Join this project as a partner and together we will develop new educational tools about plastic pollution and overconsumption. You can learn how similar organisations tackle this issue in their work and get to know practical methods to use in your work after this project.
