Youth Empowerment Association opens a call for 3 youth workers (23+ years!) for the Erasmus+ training course “Sustainable Organizations” taking place in Bansko, Bulgaria form 21 November to 1 December 2023.

Sustainability is a synergy of social justice, ecological health, and economic vitality. This project responds to the growing interest in sustainable development and conveys the necessity for action not just on individual, but on organizational level. It aims to provide NGOs with the tools, information, and inspiration needed to introduce a wide variety of sustainable practices as well as to encourage the exchange of good practices and ideas on the topic between the youth workers and organizational representatives. The project activities will focus on creating activities and strategies which organizations could integrate in any of their projects in order to raise awareness of sustainability and impacts of their youth projects.

OBJECTIVES:
