ECO - Ecological Cooperation Opportunity

The training activity took place
in Navacepeda de Tormes
organised by Asociación Jovenes Solidarios
04-14 July 2014

Aims & objectives

"What can I do?" "What can we do?" These are the questions which you can hear very often. There are many people, especially young people, who are worried about the preoccupying situation in which our countries and the whole planet is and plan actions which they can implement to change it or at least alleviate it.
One more time, the lack of information or, in some cases, the information overload, limits the capacity to act for those who want to make a positive impact on their environment. It is not easy to identify what actions are best suited to make a change which now, more than ever, we see as necessary.

Impact and long-term benefits:
Youth ambassadors of the environmental awareness in their own surroundings, when they come back home.
New ideas, solutions and project to develop, both on a personal and local level.

Target group & international/intercultural composition of the group & team

Asoc. Jóvenes Solidarios (Spain),

Training methods used & main activities

The theme of the exchange has been chosen by the young people from the AJS youth group. They prepared the program and the activities. They are youngsters between 14 and 18 years old, from a rural area who consider it necessary to rise the awareness of the people about the environmental problems, which had been created by our society and our way of life. They want to reflect, together with young people from other countries, on the values of nature and learn how to protect it, through workshops and voluntary activities, which will be implemented in collaboration with public and private sector of the zone in which the camp will take place

Outcomes of the activity

Young people more aware of the environmental problems and the ecological footprint we all leave on Earth. Youth with strong commitment to solve the environmental problems and specific tools to achieve it.
Cleaner rivers and paths in the zone of the camp.
