The YouthIES project, aligned with the EU Youth Strategy, supports youth social entrepreneurship by integrating digital experiences, ideation, creativity, social and community responsibility, inspiring the uptake of initiatives. Its activities aim to enhance youth capacities for community-based environmental interventions using digital tools and effective systems-thinking approaches.
YOUTHIES WILL ENHANCE THE CAPACITIES OF YOUTH WORKERS AND EDUCATORS TO UPSKILL AND RESKILL YOUTH TO BECOME ACTIVE AGENTS WITHIN THEIR COMMUNITIES IN THE FIGHT AGAINST CLIMATE CHANGE.
We aim to create a space where youths can learn how to identify environmental issues in their countries and take action—through social media and other means—to become active and mobilize people. We strive to empower youth to use tools such as fundraising, applying for funds, storytelling, and social media campaigns.
