In less than two weeks 60 youngsters from 5 different countries will arrive to beautiful Lungau region in Austria to participate in one of the greatest environmental youth event of this autumn – Youth Green Conference-2022. During
five days teenagers will take part in the active program accompanied with discussions about green future of Europe.
Together with our project partners from Austria, Italy, Germany, Slovakia and Ukraine we have prepared a lot of outdoor and indoor activities and ready to welcome the conference delegates. On 13th of September all partners gathered on the final online meeting to agree on the final detailed agenda, sum up lists of workshops materials, agree on the arrival and departure final arrangements, and, for sure, share excitement about upcoming event.
We don’t want to spill the beans, but at the same time we can´t keep from sharing some of our plans. For example, European Wilderness Society team will hold famous Respect Nature, Life Stock Protect, Owls and Butterflies workshops. These are practical and interactive learning about species, habitats and nature protection. We will also talk about climate change impacts as well as about green future of Europe.
Also, youngsters will try themselves as true scientists with our partner Revivo and examine some samples to test the rivers water quality and learn about rivers importance.
Our Italian partner will help youngsters to discover nature and wildlife more deeply, through their exiting activities, like Listen to Nature, Animals of Forests and Track and Signs. We will also learn about their experience of working with volunteers.
Out Ukrainian partner FORZA will help youngsters to understand how urban forests can help to adapt to climate change, teach how to value trees and feel the nature with all your senses.
Can nature be experienced through art? No doubts! We are going prove it through creative jam. This is special session where delegates can evaluate their knowledge and feelings while making digital and land art. Music, photo, collage or video – there are no limits for imagination. The main aim of such format is to make Youth Green Conference a remarkable event, which can bring a lot of inspirations for youngsters future projects.
As well, we didn’t forget about Youth Charter for Environment. We were thrilled to review the ideas of the participants about environmental problems and possible solutions for them.
Youth Charter for Environment is collective paper which youngsters are going to create during the conference. It includes environmental concerns, demands and solution. The Charter will become a guideline for developing their own environmental project and constant reminder, the youth a ready to take active actions to ensure the future of the Earth. Youth Charter for Environment will contribute to the achieving of the European Youth Goal #10 -Sustainable Green Europe! And our Conference participants will have a chance to present the Charter to European experts and decision makers!
We are looking forward to this great event and are grateful for Erasmus +Programme for its support!
