Bilinçli Tüketim Ağı - Conscious Consumption Network
Start date: Sep 1, 2014, End date: Jul 1, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

It is quite important to show sensibility in a world where the requests and needs of people are infinite but the sources are limited and also important not only for individual future, but also for the quality life in terms of sociality. Increasing the environmental awareness by considering the mutual dependence of sources and humans in terms of conscious shopping and consuming and the non- com modification of the purposes are the areas which should be dealt. Two third of the world?s underground sources has already been consumed; half of world?s drinking water has already been contaminated and it is clear that half of the animal and plant species will be extinct in the next 10 years and life conditions will threat people seriously in the next 20 years. With the efforts of the young from 7 Europe and 1 Program countries, it is aimed that young people will be aware and conscious consumers. Gathering for conducting cooperative studies about how the culture and environment affect and improve the request of consuming is also another aim. It is expected from the partner organizations, which will join this network, to share their studies and experiences in their native and apply these in their organizations. Within the planned activities, it is aimed that attendants will be conscious consumers and that they have enough qualifications to teach young people. 27 young people that will work in the project will evaluate the consumption madness, effects of consumption madness, consumption policies and figures of countries and talk about the future scenarios with the experts. They will develop new education means; get information about conscious consumption, conduct awareness studies, develop new projects and establish partnerships. With the project, our aim is to ensure conscious consumption trends in our country and Europe and to ensure new policies by drawing attention to this consumption madness which is one of the most important problems to be dealt with. With the network that will be established with our partners from Europe, we aim to improve our projects at the international level, to share good instances and to ensure that young people will deal with the consumption madness which is also the problem of the world countries. It is planned to maintain the existence of the living organisms and prevent the planet from being consumed by minimizing global problems with results which can be obtained in the long term.
