WP2 Analysis of youth competences and green business eco-systems
WP3 Development of “GREEN-UP” e-platform
WP4 Creation of digital micro-training modules boosting entrepreneurship in a framework of CE and Green Deal
CONNECTUS due to its experience with non-formal learning platforms will lead WP3 by developing the “GREEN-UP” e-platform, in order to create supportive, responsive, and collaborative digital working environment and ensure a coherent peer-to-peer learning with support of youth workers. “GREEN UP” platform is essential as it will be a primary tool for building transnational links between young people, as well as a communication tool with youth workers from all partner countries and it will also host all the results produced by the project.
The GREEN-UP project will change the way young people participate in the debate on climate and climate change environment, raising their awareness and their energy. Through the facilitation and active participation of every YOUTH member can make their voice heard and be represented, also having the opportunity to understand more about the EU Green Deal strategy and the various actions that Europe will implement to build a better future society. The implementation of the flipped-learning – peer to pear e-learning platform will thus encourage transnational comparison between young people communities. At local/regional level the project will have an impact through empowering young people and taking action to achieve objectives of the Green Deal by encouraging them to express their opinion to decision-makers by participating in debates and discussions, increasing general understanding of the EU Green Deal by encouraging critical thinking, information analysis, expression and the development of a better understanding of the EU Green Deal opinions, negotiation and conflict resolution skills, enhancing general participation in the life of the community.
