Give pedestrians their city back
Start date: Aug 1, 2012,

Generations of today live on a planet where urban development has main focus of attention and importance. What frequently happens is that the sustainability appraisal is neglected during planning process, as well as the right of public information and participation in decision making. The Youth Exchange “Give pedestrians their city back” aims to share experiences and best practices on the concept and actions on green cities and also to develop cooperation and common awareness raising actions that will be widely implemented in a number of European countries. The project will involve 4 organizations from 4 different European countries who work in the field of youth and environmental protection. It will gather 20 young people from Albania, Serbia, Czech Republic and Germany, who want to make green changes in their cities by influencing decision makers and raise community awareness. It will last 7 days and will take place from 16-23 September 2012 in Tirana, Albania.While running all the activities of the project (practical workshops, outdoor activities, environmental games, presentations) methods of non-formal education will be used (interactive workshops - learning by doing, creative activities, reflection in small groups, discussions, simulation games, role plays, group work and participants' presentations). The last day of the youth exchange will include a one day direct action in the city on the occasion of 22/9, the World Car Free Day. All participants will be involved in preparing different sessions of the agenda - some of the sessions will be prepared by national teams of participants, others by the international preparatory team composed of the group leaders. In this way, they will develop the feeling of ownership of the action and its outcomes, so the enthusiasm will continue and will be transferred in their own communities after the project is finished. YEE is the applicant and sending partner of the project and EDEN Center will host the YE.
