Fantastic news! Our ‘Climate Action’ project has been approved by Erasmus+ ! It will take place in Brindisi, Italy in 2022. The aim of the project is to raise ecological awareness in Europe and educate young people on the topic of climate change and environmental protection. We have chosen to work in Italy as it is leading education for young people with compulsory education around climate change in schools. Minister Lorenzo Fioramonti of Italy’s Five Star Movement (with a history of environmental concern and grassroots activism) is putting in place an economic policy that goes beyond the GDP debate. Sustainability, natural capital accounting and the economics of wellbeing are central. Another goal of the project is to involve young people in taking action and show them that they can have a real impact on policy makers in their own country. Partners will educate the young people during this project with hands-on activities and theoretical knowledge that will provide them with tools to become young climate advocates and activists.
Our partners are Balık Sanat Derneği in Istanbul, Antalya Orkidelerini ve Biyolojik Çeşitliliği Koruma Derneği in Antalya and Naukleros in Brindisi.
