Cultivating Tomorrow: Empowering Youth Workers for a Green Future

ERASMUS+ MOBILITY OF YOUTH WORKERS

 

The ‘Cultivating Tomorrow’ aims to equip participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to drive sustainable change and combat the climate crisis while improving youth participation in democratic life, fostering thereby positive change both within society and ecosystems. The project aims to have participants understand, engage with and value the natural world and its biodiversity, create a sense of curiosity and wonder and learn to act for sustainability. The participants will learn about the practical implementation but also the advocacy and knowledge-sharing around permaculture, regenerative agriculture, soil health, biodiversity preservation and veganism.

 

Guided by Giuseppe Sannicandro, an internationally recognized trainer in the domain of permaculture, 30 participants from 5 countries will be equipped with a comprehensive set of knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to excel in the domains of permaculture, regenerative agriculture, veganism and environmental education, as well as youth work.

 

The Cultivating Tomorrow training will last for 12 days (excluding travel time) and will gather 30 youth workers from France, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and Greece. It will take place between 23 October and 3 November 2024 at a rural farm outside the city of Megara, Greece, which is now initiating its transition towards permaculture.

 

A mix of dynamic and interactive methods including hands-on workshops, group discussions, open space technology, problem-based learning (PBL), will ensure an engaging and effective learning experience. The farm venue complements these methods by providing a real-world context for learning about ecosystems, sustainability, veganism and permaculture.
