Training Course 05/05/2024 – 10/05/2024 in Brussels, Belgium

EKO is happy to announce that one more amazing training course has been completed successfully. The project “Non-formal education activities to support the Greencomp framework” that hosted by the Belgian organization YouthProAktiv, and took place in Brussels, Belgium from 5 to 10 May 2024. 


Aims & Objectives of the project 


The aim of the training course “Non-formal education activities to support the Greencomp framework” was to raise young people’s awareness of the need for disadvantaged youngsters to be supported into green jobs since they are more likely than their peers to miss out on the opportunities presented by the global green transition. 


More specifically the objectives were:

  • Increasing youth workers’ common understanding of the GreenComp framework and

brainstorm the ways of engaging disadvantaged youngsters in sustainable practices at the local, national, and international levels.

  •  Provide youth workers with knowledge on how to promote and disseminate the sustainable political agenda among the local youth, and the competence development they need to help youngsters take over the green transition and act for sustainability.
  •  Engage and empower young people especially disadvantaged youngsters to live, work, and act sustainably.


Workshops & Activities of the project 


Through this project, participants had the opportunity to work with a non-formal methodology on topics like sustainable development and social and environmental responsibility. During the project, they participated in activities that were icebreakers, energizers, team/group work, interactive and creative workshops, open-space workshops, discussions, evaluation, role-playing, informal gatherings, etc. Through these activities, participants were encouraged to share their experiences, and values and to address the environmental issues of their communities.
