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 Belgian youth between 18 and 25 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.

During the summer 2020, we selected the participants and the first weekend took place online in November 2020. Interested in what we are doing ? Follow us on social media or check the news section below

I joined the climate movement because I simply couldn't stand by and watch how our planet and future were being destroyed. I had to act.

This incredibly amazing system we live in is destroyed everyday a little more, by our fault. It scares me, but it’s also a powerful call to action : this current crisis should inspire us to conceive the world for tomorrow. For me, it’s just unthinkable to stay still and not to participate in this crucial movement. It’s about being on the right side of history !

All the solutions to the climate crisis are already on the table, not taking action is not an option to me. The vision of a better tomorrow drives me to protect the planet for all living beings.
