“You can too“ is our common project – the youth from Poland, Slovak Republic, and Czech Republic, which consists of 3 phases:
• youth exchange, which will take place in Zakopane
• dissemination of the results and summary of the project
The aim of our project is to raise awareness among our peers and younger colleagues about the negative impact of air pollution and the occurrence of smog in our cities and regions. During the exchange, we will meet with experts to learn good practices and discuss how to change our social awareness and then educate our peers on the issue of air pollution (SMOG).
The exchange will be be held 3-11 November, 2018. 39 participants and leaders from Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia will actively participate in the project. The main topic of our exchange is the issue of the importance and destructive role of SMOG in Central and Eastern Europe. The project is an initiative of the youth from the Visegrad Group, which is passionately involved in ecological movements and in the search for alternative ways to counteract the
phenomenon of SMOG.
The goals we have set together when building a project are as follows:
• broadening the knowledge of participants on how to reduce air pollution,
• increase of European awareness of project participants,
• promotion of values of pro-citizen attitudes among young people, social work activities for the benefit of the local environment.
As part of the project, we will conduct Oxford discussions, intercultural parties, special workshops „Zero smog“ that will take place at a local school, set up a special happening and we will make a special short document on the level of smog in our homelands and ways to prevent this phenomenon.
During the project we will create an educational game, happaning and plan of social campaigns in our cities. The long-term benefit of our meeting is that we want to trigger a social response in our local communities, specifically young people, to be safe from the effects of smog and, in the future, to make better changes by counteracting or reducing the effects of this phenomenon through concrete solutions.
