Aims & objectives


The seminar aimed to explore the green and inclusion field and develop awareness about the lived realities of YPWFO regarding green transitions and climate change. Also, it explored how the Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps Programmes can make a positive change for young people with fewer opportunities, considering the environment and climate action.


- Identify common ground and create a common understanding on ‘green inclusion’ by exploring the concepts of inclusion & green from an intersectional perspective;
Understand the broader themes that are connected to green & inclusion and climate justice (for example post-colonisation, poverty, gender differences, identity, disability, etcetera);
Develop awareness in green organisations, movements and initiatives about lived experiences of young people with fewer opportunities and find ways of making a positive change together;
Collect struggles that green organisations, movements and initiatives are facing when it comes to including young people with fewer opportunities and find ways to reach out to them and engage them through Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps;
Explore how Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps can amplify the voice and participation of young people with fewer opportunities in the green transition and in climate action;
Create connections and provide a space for networking and collaboration according to overlapping fields of interest.

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

The seminar group was composed of thirty-seven youth workers, representatives of organizations or informal groups from eleven countries with expertise/experience on topics related to Green and Inclusion.

Training methods used & main activities

The seminar team put a significant effort into making sure that the principles of non-formal education and learning were applied in the activity implementation; active participation & collaboration, shared responsibility, commitment & self-directedness, and learner-centeredness were the ‘lighthouse’ in developing content and activities.
Methods used during the seminar include presentation, guest speaker, group activities, workshop, sharing experiences, getting to know each other, outdoor activities, padlet, and reflection moments.

Outcomes of the activity

The outcome of the seminar was to bring together youth work organizations and experts from the fields of inclusion and environmental sustainability active in the EU Youth Programmes Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps to explore the links between both topics, learn from each other, and co-create the basis for more inclusion in the green transition and climate action.
