Erasmus+ – For a sustainable future! [ENG]

For a sustainable future” is a double international Youth Exchange project that aims to involve 28 participants aged between 20 and 30 from different countries to strengthen young people’s awareness about
sustainability and create innovative forms of consumption and production respective of the environment and human rights.

About the project: 
The challenge of humanity in the 21st century is to satisfy the needs of the global population within the planet’s resources. This challenge requires especially the education and the sensitization of young people, as well as their innovative and creative capacity. This challenge is also very relevant for young European citizens.

 

The main purpose of this international exchange of young people is to create an intercultural experience in which young people from different countries become aware of the social and environmental impact of their
consumption and the importance of sustainability, and then develop concrete proposals that can be realised by the young participants or by the project partner organizations at the end of the exchange. This objective will be achieved by comparing the situations in different countries and looking for proposals that can be applied across the countries involved and, more generally, among European countries.
