Supporting youth for a more sustainable future
The project Weekends for future aims to organise capacity-building workshops in the High Fens. These weekends will help 20 Belgian youth between 18 and 30 years old lead environmental projects, by inviting them to workshops and lectures about climate change, biodiversity, project management, communication, etc. The participants will also have the opportunity to work together on a concrete project.
The initial weekends were planned for 2020-2021, but the project had to be postponed due to the coronavirus health crisis, after a series of alternative online activities. We are relaunching the project this winter 2022, face-to-face with a new group of participants!
