  • Would you like to share your experience and practice with other international participants and their youth organisation and jointly develop new methods and approaches in the field of sustainability and the UN sustainability goals?

Global warming is a fundamental threat to all people on earth, but in different ways:
The lifestyle of the rich is the main cause of the greenhouse effect, people in the global south suffer the most from the consequences, like drought, heat waves and floods. Especially poor and young people in the global North and South are bearing the consequences of a climate crisis they did not cause. The main focus of this training is the worldwide fight for climate justice. Together we want to look for positive role models and helpful competences to achieve a more peaceful and sustainable future for all of us.

The training will consist of the following modules:

  • Workshops on understanding global warming e.g. „climatefresk“
  • Workshops on just and sustainable nutrition e.g. „Food Justice“.
  • Workshops with examples from Global Learning;
  • Visit to the Rainforest Centre „Centre for Global Sustainability“ www.regenwaldzentrum.de
  • Workshops on creative events and campaigns on climate justice
  • Learning from best practice: Excursions to initiatives in Darmstadt and Frankfurt that work for climate justice, e.g. fridays for future, students for future.

Become part of the international community that stands up for sustainability, climate justice and a world without discrimination!

Bit by bit, we can steer the world in a more sustainable direction, where people and the climate comes before profit. We can all help to shape this change! About 25 youth and young adults from Europe and neighbouring countries are invited to the training. Some experience in youth or non-formal political education and the possibility to implement activities within your own organisation/network is required. The training results should be widely promoted and used in your own work!
