About the project

The project “Environment and Young People’s Role” is a youth exchange which addresses art and environmental
issues, through artistic creativity. Making a proper use of these tools we want to raise public awareness, related to environmental challenges in European and local level. 30 youth leaders from Macedonia, Spain, Georgia, Slovakia, Hungary and Lithuania will cooperate through different art workshops to achieve one common goal. The main objective of the project is to draw attention to the problem of maintaining a clean environment. During these 8 days of youth exchange, participants will have the chance to discuss current issues, share ideas how to preserve environment clean, to simulate simple steps that will help towards reducing the impact of negative factors, which is caused by counterfeiting of secondary raw materials. All conclusions, suggestions and ideas of participants will be shown through different style of arts such as: video, theatre, art workshops with paper & plastic trash, bottles, reusing clothes etc. The result of the project will include a final report – video, related with the problem of environmental degradation, which will be broad-casted to local media channels. Additionally, a short theater performance (flashmob), handcrafted creations from recycled materials, a photo exhibition which will be conducted by the participants of the project, will also be regarded as project’s final outcomes. Thus, a proper use of project’s outcomes will assist us to have more local people engaged into recycling, especially young people and will also
disseminate our concerns and potential solutions about environmental degradation. All the participants of the project will realize that they are a part of Europe where each person is important for wellbeing of the whole Europe.
