Go Green for your Community!

Training Course

3-5 April 2020 | University of Edinburgh (John McIntyre Conference Centre), United Kingdom

A funded 2-day training for 18-30 year old's to grow your greener community idea!

Are you aged between 18-30? 

Do you have an idea of a way to make your community more environmentally friendly? 

Could you gather yourself and four other friends to bring about positive change in your local area?


If so, then you have come to the right place!


Go Green for your Community aims at bringing together young people who are passionate about the environment and supporting their local community. We hope to provide learning, time and space for you to find out more about how to apply for funding to carry out a Solidarity Project in your local community.

- A chance to network and meet other young people who are also looking to submit a community project

- Personal development and learning through your project
