Environment Young StoryTellers – EYST

Erasmus Plus KA1 – Youth workers Training Event

Rome, 21-26 May 2024

The project EYST will set up in Rome a free training course for Youth Workers on digital storytelling techniques applied to environmental education and the fight against climate change. Course objectives are:

  • give the opportunity to participate in an educational experience aimed at raising participants’ awareness of environmental sustainability issues and aimed at encouraging an exchange of experiences between participants and organizations from different countries
  • provide innovative tools for the promotion of an ecological culture within the local and virtual communities in which youth workers operate and are immersed. The proposed practices must be applicable within work contexts and then implemented by the organizations with which young people collaborate.

We’d like to contribute, with this course, to the creation a community of Youth Workers, understood as a network that operates at a local and transnational level to facilitate the diffusion of ecological thinking within the European Community.
