Youth Green Conference 2021 approved!

We are exited to announce that we have secured funding via the Erasmus+ programme for the Youth Green Conference 2021! In this Youth Exchange project, we will invite 60 youngsters from Austria, Germany, Italy, Slovenia and Ukraine to the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Lungau. We will cooperate with our partners Dominicus-von-Linprun-Gymnasium Viechtach (DE), Eliante Onlus (IT), Zavod Revivo (SI), and Forza NGO (UA). This project is a follow-up and extension of the successful Youth Green Conference from 2019. Keep an eye out for more updates and information on our website.

Green, greener, greenest!

In the current times of the COVID-19 pandemic, nature shows us how important it is to respectfully treat nature. We are all facing bigger environmental challenges than ever before. Especially due to the unsustainable human behaviour and consumption of our own resources. Therefore, the young generation is stepping up, demanding that governments must do more to mitigate climate change. People have to change their behaviour and sustainably treat our environment. During the Youth Green Conference 2021, youngsters, experts and professionals will get together to listen and learn from each other. Together, we will raise awareness and stimulate youngsters to become more actively involved, to achieve targets of the Youth Goals and greener future.

During the Youth Green Conference 2021 project, the European Wilderness Society and its four partners will organise a 5-day conference about sustainability, climate change and other environmental topics. This will offer youngsters the opportunity to increase awareness on the importance of sustainability for their own generation. It will also challenge them to think outside of the box and reflect on their own personal behaviour.

We are very happy that the Erasmus+ Youth in Action programme is supporting us to organise another great Youth Green Conference in 2021.
