Thank you for your understanding!

The COVID 19 pandemic changed the social life of people around the world but also promoted alarming information related to the quality of life of citizens around the world and the danger of environmental pollution. Numerous studies show that the world is facing climate change, air pollution, limited natural resources, environmental pollution, limited opportunities for educating young people in the field of environmental protection, deficit of eco-actions and limited campaigns to raise eco consciousness. These alarming data show that the quality of life is significantly reduced and new green changes are needed, promotion of green habits, raising eco awareness and involvement of young people in eco actions through youth activism and non-formal education. Through youth activism and the NGO sector, young people can improve their habits, attitudes towards nature and contribute to a better quality of life by actively participating in eco-
activities and environmental actions.

Motivated by these problematic situations around the world, young representatives of 7 non-governmental organizations from Italy, Serbia, Portugal, N Macedonia, Turkey, Croatia and Romania defined a plan for writing, implementation and organization of Key Action 152 – Youth Exchange for Environmental Protection.
