Brief on the project:
The main aim of the project is to raise young people’s awareness about the degree to which individual and social well-being depends on the quality of the urban environment and the necessity to think and act in an environmentally- conscious way. While the world faces rising hazards related to climate-change, resource depletion, pollution and other environmental pressures, cities have become home to over half of the world’s population. Today urban areas play a dominant role in global consumption, resource use, waste production and pollution. Various measures and interventions are being implemented in different countries to respond to the rising need for action.
An efficient approach to achieve this goal is to get young people acquainted with the challenges faced in urban environments and the recent developments and initiatives such as the Resilience Strategy dedicated to enhancing a city’s capacity to adapt to climate change and mitigate modern environmental stresses, enabling sustainable development and inclusive growth. The project was inspired by the “100 Resilient Cities” international initiative, and invites partners who come from cities/countries involved in this initiative. Thus, it offers a great opportunity for knowledge-sharing about existing strategies and ideas-exchanging about solutions contributing to greener cities.
