In this project, we are increasing young people’s civic engagement in the field of sustainable development, environmental protection and tackling climate change. We are implementing the project in the Warmian-Mazurian and Pomeranian Provinces in cross-sectoral cooperation between entities from Poland and Norway. The entities involved are: three social partners, a business-related institution, three municipalities and nine educational institutions. As part of the project, we introduce an innovative method of working with young people, including municipal youth councils. We initiate and support cooperation between NGOs and educational institutions, and develop environmental education in schools. We carry out diagnoses of needs and resources in the field of ecology and sustainable development in the three municipalities where the project is implemented. We organise information, consultation and diagnostic meetings with municipal authorities. We conduct workshops on climate change. We test in the municipalities the youth initiatives that emerge from the meetings and workshops. We promote youth entrepreneurship in the field of green growth. We want to implement the most interesting ideas of young people in these municipalities.
