How can we justify youth work when leaving a major carbon footprint with every step within an Erasmus+ project? Flying in 20 people from all over Europe can be equalled to 2 tons of CO2. In addition, waste of food, energy and other resources is a common problem at such events. Do you want to break the cycle and be a part of the ECO change? Are you interested in learning about sustainable lifestyle? With this project, we will have a great impact on the Erasmus+ community, influencing projects yet to come and future work of organizations. Through a variety of interactive and fun workshops, we will create content worth sharing.
The goal of “E+CO” is to create innovative material on the topic of sustainability in cooperation with motivated people from the field of youth work in an international and enjoyable environment. Together, 21 participants from Slovakia, Estonia, Greece, Poland, Austria and Spain will work on new strategies, ideas and information about making Erasmus+ projects more sustainable. We hope that it will have an impact on the Erasmus community and other NGOs. It allows youth workers to get better acquainted with the topic while gaining hands-on experience and skills of eco-friendly project management.
This is the draft schedule. Some of the activities can depend on weather and other unpredictable aspects. We will always let the participants know about the changes.
