The Green Goggles Project
Start date: Feb 15, 2016, End date: May 14, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

With our youth exchange called „The Green Goggles Project” we wanted to open up the eyes of European youngsters, who were willing to be aware of their chances and responsibilities about their environment. Our aim was to increase their entrepreneurship and sense of initiative in the field of nature protection and healthy lifestyle. Through this youth exchange, our participants got the chance to expand their knowledge in the area of creativity and social media as well. Our project took place in Gánt, Hungary between 16 and 24 August 2016. Our target group was European youngsters between the age of 18-30 from Hungary, Romania, Slovenia, Spain and Italy. Participants had the chance to exchange their experiences and ideas in such topics as urban gardening, health and environment protection, this way getting an opportunity to start or develop their skills. We got to know the diverse plants, fruits, herbs and vegetables of each country, on the other hand how nature and environment protection works there. We discussed ecological characteristics, advantages and disadvantages, and actual issues of the participant nations in the current topic. Furthermore, some activities worked with the topic of physical and mental health.We aimed to provide a chance for our participants to widen their horizons, to take responsibility for their own health and for their environment, and finally, to be an active citizen in Europe. Participants also exchanged methods and information, with which they could start their own projects at home, and bring the “Think global, act local.” motto to life.We chose the title after an idea: we prepared green paper goggles with environmental information and motivational messages on them. We started making these on our project week and give them to local people on the streets of Hungary. After this project, each participant nation can continue making and sharing these at home, this way raising visibility to our project and the local issues. We started a website and a Facebook page to give chance to other people around Europe to join our mission. Our goal was to have a group of young people in the Union who were actively working together for a greener Europe.
