Eurodesk and ERYICA have joined forces to provide the youth information sector with guidelines and background on greening their services and supporting young people in their environmental ambitions. The result of this work, the Greening Youth Information Services guide will be presented online on World Environment Day.
The aim of youth information is not only to respond to the needs, interests and requests of young people but also to anticipate their needs and develop preventive measures accordingly. The aim of the guide is to explore the role of youth information work in the context of the climate emergency, as well as to provide concrete tips and examples of good practices when it comes to designing and providing greener youth information services. The guide provides examples for youth information services on how to inform, engage and empower young people on environmental sustainability. The objective is also to raise awareness about the importance of greener youth information strategies and youth programmes among service providers and policymakers. The publication is complemented with policy recommendations, examples of non-formal education activities and a green glossary.
You can meet the authors and contributors of the guide during the online launch event on 5 June 15:00-17:00 CΥ time.
The speakers will include the presidents of ERYICA and Eurodesk, Jaana Fedotoff and Ingrida Jotkaite, the young climate activist, Anuna de Wever, authors of the publication and promoters of good practices. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions from each of them.
