Do you want to make your youth work more environmentally friendly Are you interested in how to make Erasmus+ and ESC projects greener? If the answer is yes and you are working with young people directly, - then this is the activity for you!

The Erasmus Goes Greener initiative explores how Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps projects can be more environmentally conscious and responsible — from creating a greener vision for the project and the organisations to discovering possible opportunities, taking action and contributing to an environmental movement in youth work. 

You don't need previous knowledge about environmental sustainability or green projects, just a motivation to make change. We will share practices and explore together how to create an environmentally positive impact in youth work. 

This activity contains training, field visit and seminar elements in order to create a rich and inspiring learning environment. This is an opportunity for youth workers to learn more from existing practices, share, get inspired and discover ways how to make projects, organisations and your youth work greener.


How can you benefit?

Our objectives are:

  • to inspire you as a youth worker and your organisations to organise Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps projects in a more environmentally conscious way, 
  • to build your capacities as a youth workers on how to develop and organise green projects and to empower you to make your organisations greener,
  • to enhance your knowledge on how to tackle challenges during the process of making youth projects greener,
  • to inspire you to work together with young people on green topics and provide knowledge on how to introduce eco-practices in youth projects and youth organisations,
