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
