Young Climate Professionals (YCP)
Young Climate Professionals (YCP) is a green-literacy pilot project promoting active citizenship and social entrepreneurship among young adults across 10 European countries. Throughout a series of activities running from September 2022 to March 2023, young people will gain an in-depth knowledge in the field of green literacy and personal skills. The learning sessions will include expert talks, group discussions and assignments. Online interaction tools such as simulation games, joint working platforms and a communication channel will facilitate the sharing of knowledge and strengthen interconnections among the participants. By developing and implementing their own green project ideas, the participants will practice planning, monitoring, and evaluating their work.
Enhancing individuals sustainability competencies is the core of this project. We thus believe that the YCPs will become agents of change who can help tackle climate issues and support the green transition in an inclusive way. During our closing meeting in Berlin, the most outstanding project ideas will receive a mini grant. The long-term goal of the project is to build a network of Young Climate Professionals in Europe. This alliance can become a vehicle for joint green projects that raise awareness and make Europe’s target of becoming carbon neutral by 2050 more achievable and realistic.
