Erasmus+ youth exchange “We Choose Green” was a two parts mobility. First project took place in Philipsburg, Sint Maarten on 27th May – 5th June, 2022. Second part in Msida, Malta on 3-12th September, 2022. Each mobility gathered 25 participants coming from Lithuania, Malta, St. Maarten, Anguilla, Martinique & Italy (50 participants in total). THE MAIN AIM OF THE PROJECT was to head towards a change in European youth’s behavior and habits in order to reach a sustainable and eco-friendly lifestyle.
INSPIRATION OF THE PROJECT
Global warming has become an undisputed fact about our current livelihoods; our planet is warming up and we are definitely part of the problem. However, this isn’t the only environmental problem that we should be concerned about.
All across the world, people are facing a wealth of new and challenging environmental problems every day. Some of them are small and only affect a few ecosystems, but others are drastically changing the landscape of what we already know.
Our planet is poised on the brink of a severe environmental crisis. We are in a state of planetary emergency, with environmental problems piling up high around us. Unless we address the various issues prudently and seriously we are surely doomed for disaster.
