Educating local youth on sustainability. This is the goal of the project named “GENERATION FOR REGENERATION. Networking education for the ecological change” promoted by the Comitato d’Intesa, Belluno, and financed by Fondazione Cariverona within the scope of the announcement FORMAT.
The purpose of this initiative is to promote education among young people on the new concepts of sustainability, according to an approach of capacity building which involves participants in activities designed to encourage learning through experience. “The project strives to adapt on a local scale the priorities set off internationally by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development as well as the priorities set off at the European level, by the EU Youth Strategy 2019-2027,” the promoters explain. “Collaboration is the fundamental principle: all those involved in this network make knowledge, skills and experience available to young people.”
