YES To Sustainability is a network of young people and youth workers whose aim is to bring together young people in ecovillages and sustainable projects in Europe by organizing Youth Exchanges and Mobility for Youth Workers (training courses, seminars, etc.).
Our vision is to encourage young people to have a fun experience in community life, where they can slow down, hear the silence, grow awareness, be in balance and giving them a place where they can start to trust themselves.
With this encouragement, young people can reconnect with nature, learn to accept others and learn about sustainable and low impact ways of living in ecovillages and rural settings. On this path of transformation, they can get all the support they need and in turn be able to support others and find ways to take care of the planet in their daily life.
Who are we?
We are a group of young people and youth workers interested in sustainability willing to share ecovillage lifestyle and low impact ways of living. We are working by young people, with young people and for young people. We come from different countries and with different backgrounds.
What we offer?
As an expert team in all the project phases of Erasmus+ Youth Exchanges in ecovillages, we offer two kinds of support to ecovillages, networks, sustainable projects and young people wanting to organize a Youth Exchange:
- Basic support: get access to the know-how developed in and gathered through different Youth Exchanges in ecovillages around Europe. It included documents, organizational and communication systems done in the past three years.
- Complete support: an experienced mentor from the YTS team that follows your organization in all the different phases, attending some meetings and overviewing your process during all stages of the project.
The organization and modalities of our support and mentorship scheme are being deeply reviewed through our Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership project. If you want to know more, please get in touch with us using our facebook group.
