"Youth for climate action"

Training Course

21-29 July 2023 | Bakuriani, Georgia, Georgia

Our TC "Youth for climate action " is a key instrument for building knowledge, skills, and attitudes on climate change and supporting sustainable development within and beyond the European Union.

The project will have a positive impact on the young people who participate as youth workers. They will develop new skills and improve existing ones, specifically in the areas of climate change, intercultural communication, environmental protection, and working with diverse cultural groups. The participants will gain a deeper understanding of these subjects and will be equipped with practical techniques for using informal and non-formal educational methods to promote more tolerant attitudes among the young people they work with.The training course is expected to bring about a range of benefits to both participants and their respective organizations. The following outcomes are anticipated:

  • 1.Expanded awareness of training and youth work practices, policies, and systems across different countries.
  • 2.Enhanced understanding of the relationship between formal and non-formal education and the labor market.
  • 3.Greater knowledge in areas such as climate change, waste management, biodiversity, and UN SDGs, etc.
  • Elevated capacity for modernizing practices and triggering positive change.
  • 4.Improved familiarity with the Erasmus+ program, including the opportunities and activities available to participants and facilitators.
  • 5.Increased networking opportunities with other youth workers, allowing for information and experience sharing on an international level.
  • 6.Enhanced sensitivity and responsiveness to diversity, including social, ethnic, linguistic, and cultural differences, through cultural exchange activities and intercultural events.
  • 7.Access to youth passes, which confirm participation in non-formal education and can aid in future career development. 8.Enhanced language and digital competencies.
  • 9.Improved quality of work and activities for youth workers.
  • 10.Increased ability to meet the needs of people with fewer opportunities.
  • 11.Improved understanding and teaching of EU green deal policies.
  • 12.Increased motivation and job satisfaction among participants.

The training program for the participants will be built around non-formal education methods, with a focus on providing hands-on workshops and activities. Experienced trainers will impart their expertise and impart practical tips and techniques for working with a diverse range of young people. The program is designed to meet the needs and expectations of the participants and to provide them with a wealth of knowledge and skills that they can put into practice in their work.

The organizations involved in the project will benefit from improved capacities in their operations both domestically and at an EU level. This will include strengthened partnerships with organizations in Europe and beyond, an increase in non-EU funding for international projects, a higher standard in project planning, execution, and evaluation, and a more innovative approach to serving their target groups. The staff's qualifications in teaching and training will be advanced, particularly in regards to the project's topics, and there will be more effective processes for recognizing and validating the competencies gained during international learning experiences. The organizations will also have improved methods and practices for engaging young people, particularly those facing disadvantages, resulting in more impactful activities for the benefit of their local communities.
As a result of the training, the participants will have an opportunity to enhance their professional skills and competencies to create and carry out high-quality projects that cater to the needs and requirements of their specific target groups. The training program provides a platform for the youth workers to collaborate and communicate with peers from both Program and Eastern Partnership countries, thereby gaining valuable insights and knowledge about best practices and successful solutions related to the topic of the training. The exchange of experiences will stimulate and inspire the participants to incorporate fresh perspectives into their work with young people from diverse cultural backgrounds, ultimately leading to improved outcomes in their work.

The objectives of the project are:
1. Empower young people to take action on climate change challenges through workshops, training, and community projects.
2. providing training and education on sustainable practices and green technologies, equipping young people with the skills they need to tackle the climate crisis.
3. promoting sustainable practices and resilience to the impacts of climate change through education and training.
4. Raising awareness about the impact of climate change and the role of individuals in mitigating it.
5. To strengthen partnership cooperation among European Union and Eastern Partnership countries and empower Eastern European, Caucasus, and Central Asian non-governmental organizations.
6. promoting awareness of World Clean Up Day and Digital cleanup day, its importance among youth workers.
7. to enable youth workers to develop holistically, working with them to facilitate their personal, social, and educational development, to enable them to develop their voice, influence, and place in society, and to reach their full potential.
8. To understand and to reflect the UN Sustainable Development Goals, its. importance and objectives.
9. active participation of several environmental organizations in efforts to address environmental issues. The aim is to increase the involvement of these organizations in working towards a more sustainable and eco-friendly future.
10.To include participants who want to develop their competences to work with and for young people.

One of the objectives of Erasmus+ is to support the transition towards a green, low-carbon, and climate-resilient society. This objective is achieved through various actions such as:

  • to enhance non-formal and informal learning opportunities and active participation among young people. The goal is to encourage cooperation, inclusion, creativity, and innovation in youth-related organizations and policies. The emphasis is on promoting mobility in learning and engaging young people in various activities.
  • supporting the development of skills and competencies in the field of sustainability and the green economy, including through mobility opportunities for learners and staff.
  • encouraging the integration of sustainable development and environmental protection into education and training activities. Supporting the development of green entrepreneurship and innovation in education, training and youth sectors.
  • romoting environmentally-friendly practices and the use of digital technologies in education and training activities. Supporting the exchange of good practices, knowledge, and expertise in the field of sustainable development and environmental protection.

By incorporating the European Green Deal into the Erasmus+ program, the EU is taking concrete steps toward creating a more sustainable and environmentally-friendly future.The participants will share information about the local challenges they face in their respective countries, and present best practices and solutions that have been effective in their communities.
