Inspired by the EU Youth Strategy 2019-2027 our team decided to take action in response to the call for improvement of the lives of young people on European level. In particular young people with fewer opportunities are in need of personal and professional development, mental and physical health improvement as they transition to adulthood. The Covid-19 pandemic made these needs more emerging than ever.
That is why we created the project Youth Going Back to Nature – Engage, Connect, Empower. It aims to respond to those needs by enhancing the use and quality of environmentally sustainable outdoor activities and remedy the situation. To accomplish our goals we chose to partner with organization from 5 other European countries - LIETUVOS JURU MUZIEJUS - LSM /Lithuania/, AssociazioneSportiva Dilettantistica Trekkify - Trekkify /Italy/, Equilibre MTÜ /Estonia/, ODRŽIVA ALTERNATIVA ZAJEDNICI - OAZA /Croatia/, and Quality Education in Europe for Sustainable Social Transformation - QUEST /Belgium/. Together we have the strength to bring innovation into outdoor activities and tailor them to be beneficial for the youth community.
The official start of the YGBN Project is in May 2023 marking the beginning of 3 years of exciting innovative events and products dedicated to environmentally sustainable outdoor activities.
