Are you part of the solution to the global environmental crisis?
Are you committed to the environment? Are you tired of too little being done about the climate crisis?
Do you want to play your part in pushing forward the necessary transformations?
Are you looking for positive ideas and forms of expression to convince people of a sustainable lifestyle?
Do you want to combine ecological engagement and media activism?
If you answered “yes” to all these questions, this is your opportunity!
Starting in September 2021, the Goethe-Institut will launch the project “Young influencers for ecological change” in collaboration with the Green European Foundation and other organizations.
More than a hundred environmental and media activists from Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Argentina, Bolivia and Paraguay will train in decentralized digital workshops. The workshops will include training on innovative forms of digital communication, input and advice from experts in the field of communication, the opportunity to exchange ideas with participants and trainers and the development of local campaigns.
Parts of the conferences will be in English and in Spanish with simultaneous translations. The decentralized workshops will be held in the local language.
At the end of the decentralized workshops in February 2022, two people from each country will be elected to travel to Barcelona for a meeting and a digital conference in Berlin in May.
