Dedicated to empowering young people in Just Transition regions to spearhead sustainable initiatives that will have a lasting positive impact on their local communities. The Just Transition movement recognizes the significant shift towards a more sustainable and eco-friendly economy, which often comes with the phasing out of certain industries. This transition can have profound effects on both the environment and the livelihoods of individuals and communities. By involving youth in this process, we aim to harness their creativity, energy, and innovative thinking to not only mitigate the negative consequences of this transition but also catalyze new opportunities for growth and development.
Out of 75 selected projects, Bulgaria is one of the countries represented in the EUTEENS4GREEN project, which combines interesting and social-oriented activities.
