The YESDGs project aspires to educate young Europeans about Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and climate change policies while fostering active citizenship among them. Empowering these individuals through tools and knowledge, it aims to amplify their voices on climate issues, encouraging original insights and participation. The project's focus on skill development not only equips young people and youth workers to engage in discussions concerning climate change, sustainability, and digital transition but also cultivates an inclusive environment through toolkits promoting collaboration, innovation, and meaningful participation across diverse groups. By enhancing personal and professional growth, promoting diversity, and encouraging dialogue, YESDGs strives to boost youth engagement and leadership in addressing global challenges while identifying opportunities for impactful climate action initiatives.


The project spans several Work Packages (WP) to achieve its goals:


WP1: Project Management sets the stage, outlining the project's structure, roles, and responsibilities. It lays the groundwork for effective collaboration and efficient execution throughout.


WP2: Needs Assessment and Analysis conducts in-depth research, identifying key challenges and needs among the target demographic. This informs subsequent project activities.


WP3: Capacity Building and Training implements tailored training programs for youth and youth workers, equipping them with essential skills to engage with the project's objectives effectively.


WP4: Hackathon Event in Italy brings together youth and youth workers in a collaborative hackathon setting, fostering innovative problem-solving aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This event aims to create a manifesto outlining actionable ideas.


WP5: Communication and Dissemination devises a comprehensive communication plan, manages web presence, social media engagement, and the creation of promotional materials. It focuses on sharing project results and engaging stakeholders through various communication channels and events.


Each work package contributes uniquely to the project's overarching objective of empowering youth and fostering innovative solutions to global challenges while ensuring effective communication and dissemination of project outcomes for lasting impact.
