EcoReactEU: Addressing Eco-Anxiety in Europe through Education and Action

EcoReactEU (Reaction to eco-anxiety for a  common transition in  Europe) is an Erasmus+ KA220- Cooperation partnerships in youth project, whose priority is to reinforce links between policy, research and practice, environment, and fight against climate change.


Eco-anxiety is a subject that is currently little explored in European educational practice. Knowledge of the subject is limited, and educational policies are almost non-existent to support it. EcoReactEU aims to  ensure  the  skills  development  of  youth  workers  and  the  entire  European  educational  community,   to  promote  the  integration  of  eco-anxiety  in  their  practices  with  young  people  and  thus  offer  a  first  educational  response  to  it.  The project also aspires  to  encourage  public  policies  to  make  eco-anxiety  a  major  issue  for  consideration  in  national  and  European  youth and  educational  policies.
