Be You is a Strategic Partnership in the youth field. The project brings together 5 partners from France and Italy and a wide network of associated partners (in Italy, France and Spain) to raise young people’s awareness of climate change issues and empower them to become actors of
change in their local communities.
This goal will be reached through the implementation of 3 main activities that will produce tangible outputs:
– The “Ecological Renaissance” (organised as a role play including political actors, local community members, etc.) will show what communities could look like after a successful implementation of sustainability policies
– “2 Tonnes”: by using a carbon accounting tool will allow players to visualize their own carbon footprint and simulate improvements
And finally, a Social Entrepreneurship workshop that connects sustainable development and economic activity; it aims at initiating young people into social entrepreneurship by analysing existing solutions to societal problem, developing new business that bring value to local communities, meeting local social enterprises for inspiration…
The main target group are young people with fewer opportunities, mainly socio-economic obstacles, that push to leave them out of the conversation on sustainability.
The methodology is underpinned by four pillars of learning (reasoning, imagination, emotion and structure) accompanied by effective language, storytelling, gamification and participatory education.
A Training for youth workers will guide youth workers and teachers to reap the full potential of the Ecological Renaissance, 2 Tonnes and of the Social Entrepreneurship workshop.
Over the course of 25 months the project aims to reach 210 young people and 150 youth workers and teachers to empower young people to become active members of a more sustainable society.
