The main topic of the project will be the conflictual relationship between the people and the environment,and how their contrast results in different aspects of environmental imbalances on a large scale. We will talk about pollution, in particular about the three main types:pollution of air, water and soil.
This project will require the participants to think concretely about our impact on the planet, with the aim to try to find convincing and easily applicable solutions for improvement. To make the change concrete and on a large scale, the participants involved will initiate a collaboration with a common goal, in this case the protection of the environment and territory, using communicative means which are real and concrete, to change dramatically the current state of affairs.

We chose this name because on the one hand it expresses the cooperation of 30 young people with a common goal (the protection of environment and of our planet), and on the other it expresses a way to change the personal and collective point of view on bad environmental behavior.
As examples of “bad environmental behavior” we can mention the habit to throw the garbage on the streets and in the sea,leaving the lights on when out of the house, using plastic bags in an uncontrolled way but most of all recycling the garbage incorrectly.

The project aims to:

-Have a nice and constructive discussion about our impact on the environment;
-Enable young people to make a change in the society in which they operate;
-Discuss about participation (or non-participation) to the protection of the planet;
-Give young people tools and methods to realize concrete and inclusive actions in their community of reference;
-Raise awareness about environmental challenges and their impact on our life and lifestyle.

These objectives will be achieved through methods of non-formal education, group discussion, guided visits and open air activities.

About the last two points, we plan to have a visit at the local garbage disposal facility, to have a particular insight about how recycling works. In addition, during the last days of activity, we will visit the local beach to enjoy some time near the sea and to collect garbage.

Objectives & Goals
What will the participants “gain” from this experience?

-Reflect on environmental problems, previously considered not important, but that now have an important impact on the planet, human health and the ecosystem;

-Gain knowledge on new information and techniques to contrast pollution, including new ways to recycle and dispose of garbage;

-Gain motivation to raise awareness about environmental problems in their community;
-Find new ideas and concrete solutions to environmental problems;
-Find new tools to make a change in their society and influence their community positively.
