In the Warka Municipality, where the project is implemented, youth activity is very low. There is neither single youth organisation, nor a permanent informal youth group acting in the town. Pro-environmental activities are met with extreme reactions: some young people support them, some show no interest at all. Therefore, in our project we want to develop a sense of responsibility for climate protection in young people. The project is aimed at 75 young people from Warka High School. We are creating a space for them to pursue their cultural passions, as well as involving them in social and environmental activities. As part of the project, we carry out Educational Eco-Expeditions, which introduce young people to the natural resources of the local area and the activities of a local NGO. High school students run a social campaign called “I bet on LOcal Eco” to promote local resources and carry out their 3 Environmental Initiatives. They present the results of their work at the Eco Activity Festival at their High School. With activities like these, we want to make young people advocates for climate protection. By integrating, having fun and inspiring action, we support their self-realisation and develop active citizenship. The project partner is the Piotr Wysocki High School in Warka, with experience of implementing projects with young people and a committed teaching and management staff. Our partner is responsible for recruiting project participants, providing information about the project and supporting the development of programmes and policies.
