As many youth groups of foreign origins in EU have less knowledge in the issues related to the environment state of the continent, the project will mainly focus on the awareness rising and knowledge increase of the participating youth people in the field of environment and environmental protection both in EU and in the globe. The main necessity in this project is to strengthen and increase the youth NGO's capacity in the environment, which is an important issue of our society.
The seminar youth project will therefore gather 24 youth leaders and workers from Sweden, UK, The Netherlands and Denmark.
The aim of the seminar is to organise a meeting of youth mentors from the four EU countries to discuss issues related to the global and European environment, raising the awareness as well as the knowledge and information of the youth workers in the field of the environment. The seminar will open new working areas for youth mentors representing different youth organizations.
The seminar project will deal with widening of the youth leaders' views and understandings of the subjects in discussion, and informing and discussing them the most relevant information about the global and European environmental stories, basic principles, causes and effects of climate changes, environmental system management, EU environmental policy and the role of EU citizens particularly the youth in safeguarding the environment.
The project will be a non-formal education meeting which will base the activities on the prior knowledge and experiences of the participants, who will then participate discussions created by experts on the related subjects. The seminar participants will be provided a training that offers new skills with local and international approach, strengthening their capacity and promoting their overall understanding of complex issues related to the environment, society and economy within the concept of sustainability. The seminar will reinforce the participants through giving them the chance of exchanging their experiences and knowledge in the field of environmental issues.
Promoting ways of protecting the environment, the working methods and concrete plans for environmental works will be developed including change of attitude and dissemination of information for the sake of awareness raising in the field of environmental conservation. To increase the effects from the seminar, local and international media will be invited and involved.
