‘Local Climate – Youth Strategy’ is a pilot program that combines the potential and commitment of young people (environmental activists) with the growing readiness of local governments to discuss climate change in order to develop local environmental strategies in a participatory way. The programme covers four local governments and a regional (provincial) level. Within the project working groups are appointed consisting of young activists as well as representatives of local authorities and NGOs. On the basis of a local diagnosis, consultations with specialists and a series of meetings, the groups develop catalogues of recommendations being starting points for local strategies. An element of the process will be social consultations conducted at the level of individual local communities and an accompanying campaign highlighting the importance of actions for environmental protection and sustainable development as well as civic involvement. A study visit, organised in partnership with NGO Terram Pacis from Oslo, an organisation experienced in the delivery of environmental education and sustainable development programmes, will serve to exchange experience and inspiration. The project will be concluded by a series of local initiatives that will be the first step in implementing the strategy.
