Similar to the Youth Green Conference 2019, the Youth Green Conference 2022 invites youngsters from Austria, Germany, Italy, Slovenia and Ukraine, to jointly engage in a dialogue on the topic of a sustainable green future for Europe.
International cooperation for climate, sustainability and biodiversity
The Youth Green Conference 2022 project will consist of a 5-day conference. During these five days, the youngsters will participate in a wide range of non-formal and informal educational activities. They will be discussing together topics such as sustainability, climate change and other environmental issues. In this project, it is expected that the young participants will increase their awareness on the importance of sustainable activities, and ways to do so.
During the project, youngsters will explore ways to become actively involved in their local society to help mitigate climate change. Furthermore, they will learn more about the European Youth Goals, and develop together a Youth Charter for the Environment. The international character will also invite the youngsters to practice speaking a foreign language and foster solidarity and respectful understanding towards fellow youngsters from different countries.
