Project Promoter: Stowarzyszenie M-LAB
Proposal: 1st thematic call

Miasto Konin (Poland)
Duration time: 1.10.2021-30.09.2023

The project is implemented in cooperation with the local governments of the City of Konin and the Agder County Council in Norway. Its aim is to increase the active participation of young people in shaping local climate policies. As part of the project, we will appoint Youth Ambassadors of Climate (Młodzi Ambasadorzy Klimatu – MAK), who will initiate new solutions for the climate in cooperation with city authorities and local communities. The project is addressed to: young people aged 13-25, activists, representatives of local authorities, NGOs, and residents. We will organise two assemblies of student councils, conduct the Forum Theatre, implement an Internet platform for dialogue and cooperation. We will also develop the ‘Local policy of cooperation and engagement of residents in dialogue, discussion, planning and implementation of climate actions in the city’, and carry out two social campaigns. The local authorities of Konin and Agder will cooperate with the Young Ambassadors of Climate on the implementation of postulates submitted by young people. The experiences and results of the project will be promoted at the Youth International Climate Meeting, which will be held online. Through the implementation of this project, we will undertake the challenge of engaging young people in cooperation with local authorities for the climate protection in a situation of conflict and a lack of sense of agency among youth. The experience of the Norwegian partner (Agder County Council) in building a democratic culture and engaging an underrepresented group of young people will be helpful in this.
