What activities will we implement to reach our objectives?
Young participants from 12 countries (Armenia, Czechia, Georgia, Germany, Poland, Switzerland, Belgium, Ukraine, Moldova, Netherlands, Spain, Portugal) will develop their understanding of policy making and environmental law. They are also going to develop a workshop plan on environmental policy making, which they are going to implement in their countries upon return from the international training.
Participants of Activity 1 will conduct workshops on the climate crisis and environmental policy making, which they develop during the international activity, for the rural youth on the local level in their countries, in the local language. At this stage, they implement the skills and knowledge they got at Activity 1, as trainers. Trainers will help young participants from rural and marginalised communities understand the processes behind policy making, and the existing legal environmental frameworks.
After having identified the impacts of the climate crisis in the area where they live and the local factors that contribute to that, participants will identify the local (national) policies that contribute to the crisis or hinder its mitigation (or the lack of relevant policies). The participants are going to be recruited and selected with the help of local NGOs that will also participate in the Activity 3 of the project. Local workshops will include using online tools for environmental advocacy.
September - December 2022
1×1 exchanges of NGOs that participate in Activities 1 and 2. Twelve delegations each consisting of three to four young people from rural areas and/or marginalised communities, and one to two youth workers to support the delegation are going to participate in the exchanges. Participants will learn about the climate crisis and environmental legislation in another country, to share and evaluate each-others experience on organising local actions, to plan further cooperation to build on the outcomes of this project together.
