MY GREEN EUROPE
Friday, Oct. 26th, 10:30pm to Sunday, Nov. 4th, 11:30pm
The main idea of this project is to provide young people with information about different environmental issues to raise their awareness, but also to have them take part in creative activities. In particular we aim to create a project that involves participants coming from countries that have different attitudes towards the environment, to provide the chance for young people to learn from each other. This exchange will give participants a chance to learn more about recycling, conservation, ecology, waste types and treatment methods, it will create preconditions for a better involvement in the civic policies, but it will also maybe inspire some of the participants to pursue a career in this field.
Techniques and methods that will be used will be interactive, provocative for participants, causing them to think about things and opportunities they have. These methods include various games to maintain the group’s dynamics, energizers to fully engage participants in the activities, visual materials, educational videos, presentations, printed aids, role-playing games, simulations, case studies, sessions with "Frequently asked questions", activities in small groups and in a larger group, interactive presentations and so on.
