Creative Youth for Sustainable Environment

“Creative Youth for Sustainable Environment” is an ERASMUS+ project developed in partnership with four organizations from Croatia (Zamah Fundation), Italy (Saja), Spain (BiB) and Czech Republic (CPKP).

The project is focused on increasing the competencies of partner organizations, but it also highlights the importance of youth and their engagement in their local communities in the field of sustainable development.

In order to increase knowledge and competencies of both partner organizations and the youth this project will result in the development of four innovative e-learning modules that cover four areas in which partner organizations are experts on. These e learning modules will be available for everyone who apply in project platform.

In doing all this, we aim to encourage young people to be more active in their local communities and to drive positive changes in accordance with the highest Eco standards!

Sustainable Lifestyle Course – Scambio Giovanile

Sustainable Lifestyle è uno scambio giovanile che coinvolgerà 20 partecipanti provenienti da Italia, Grecia, Portogallo e Spagna ed avrà luogo tra il 29 marzo ed il 7 di aprile 2019 presso il progetto Saja, Paternò (Catania, Italia).

Questo è il primo progetto internazionale promosso dall’associazione Saja e risponde alla domanda su come sviluppare un approccio olistico alla sostenibilità e allo sviluppo economico tra i giovani europei e nei vari contesti locali.

Attraverso questo scambio giovanile vogliamo far comprendere e condividere le competenze di base per trasformare la nostra vita quotidiana in una più sostenibile e rigenerativa, considerando le questioni ambientali e le sfide europee della società contemporanea. Allo stesso tempo scopriremo quali sono le attività che nutrono uno stile di vita sostenibile, una transizione interiore e di comunità verso la resilienza, la comprensione dei legami che ci interconnettono tra esseri umani e con il nostro contesto ambientale e socio-economico.

Dopo un’introduzione teorico-pratica alla Permacultura, lavoreremo attraverso attività pratiche, terremo laboratori e attività per rafforzare la rete locale, condividendo quotidianamente la vita comunitaria in un clima di mutuo supporto.

Ai partecipanti forniremo:

–       Pasti gratuiti giornalieri, biologici e locali

–       Alloggio in tenda condivisa

–       Un’esperienza formativa unica in una cornice come quella di Saja alle pendici dell’Etna

–       Certificato Youthpass al termine dell’esperienza formativa

Ai partecipanti italiani si richiederà solo di provvedere alle spese di viaggio (inquanto non finanziate dal progetto) e 20 euro per l’iscrizione all’associazione Saja.

Termine ultimo per iscriversi 20 febbraio tramite questo form
