Training course "YEE-nclude: inclusion in environmental youth projects"

When: 2-9 April 2017

Where: Envicentrum PROUD - Horažďovice, Czech Republic

Who: Youth and Environment Europe

Project description:

The training course “YEE-include: Inclusion in environmental youth projects” will gather youth workers from European environmental youth organisations who are interested in the topic of inclusion and in organising quality inclusive projects.

The need to organise this project came from the fact that it is important for the network to know how to best use its capacities to also reach young people from fewer opportunities backgrounds. This can be done through work with the nature as a way to promote inclusion. This project will help youth organisations learn how to develop environmental projects that overcome different social, economic, cultural, geographical, educational, physical or mental obstacles that young people might face. We will also explore the role of non-formal education as an essential and effective tool in promoting inclusive work in the youth field.

Aims and objectives:

Aims:

  • to provide youth workers with knowledge and skills in addressing inclusion in order to organise quality environmental projects and activities that ensure equal support, participation and learning.
