Erasmus+: KA1 Youth Mobility (Youth Exchange)
Dates: 08/06/2015 - 16/06/2015
The environment is a concern for all people. Many people are unaware of the problems our planet faces and even more chose to simply ignore the problems. Our project hopes to create awareness of environmental concerns and to encourage active participating of people in the environment by starting to make changes at home.
The project is designed to allow the participants to understand that making a change can be made by many people making small changes and these changes together making a global change. Similar to building blocks if we start making changes in our homes and then in our towns and cities we will eventually have change in the EU supporting environmental conservation and a healthier more ecological way of living.
Our project will explore the different ways that we as young people can start building eco-cities though the exchange of good practices and learning from each other, by sharing the knowledge and finding solutions for common problems and concerns.
We will look at EU policy on the environment and how these policies are upheld on a European and on a local or national level. We will question why these laws are not upheld and how we as youth can help make policy reform.
Our project will explore all the possibilities available to us to help us create ecologically friendly habitats starting from our homes and expanding to our town, cities, countries and eventually all of Europe.
