Green Environmental Climate Care Orientation

Awareness of environmental issues such as environmental justice and the consequences of ongoing climate change are of utmost importance for young people aged 13-15. Nevertheless, many young people lack an understanding of how they can, on the one hand, use the environment in an ecologically sustainable way in their free time (e.g. when playing sports) and, on the other hand, contribute to reducing their ecological footprint and do something about climate change.

Finding solutions to climate change requires a joint effort of several countries across Europe. The project should therefore promote the idea of intercultural cooperation to combat climate change through the engagement of young people.

Project Content and objectives

The project is divided into the following contents:

  • Development of a programme/curriculum for a Green Camp for young people
  • Running a 1-week Green Camp for 20 young people
  • Development of a mini-manual based on the camp experience
  • Dissemination of the project and the manual in both partner countries

Overall objective

  • Encouraging young people to shape their local natural environment and combat climate change through a joint, cross-border effort.

Specific objectives

  • Development of self and group effectiveness in adolescents aged 13-15 years
  • Acquiring the knowledge and skills young people need to protect and care for their local environment
  • Understanding the natural life cycle through science lessons and experiments
  • Promoting language learning and exchanges between young people

Project partners: Austria (coordinator), Netherlands

Project duration: March 2022 to February 2023
