Project Characteristics and Results
Notable Community Participation
All project activities are implemented with involvement of young people and for young people; in particular, the key task of the established Youth Climate Center is to develop the capacity of youth to implement environmentally friendly initiatives and projects, make environmentally responsible decisions, promote healthy lifestyles and form a personal life position, oriented at environmental integrity. The initiated youth movement "Composting in Communities – Youth Acts!" broadens the opportunities for youth in creating their own businesses and "green" jobs, since it helps to spread over the developed composting practice, which is both an available resource for production of quality organic fertilizers, and a solution to an acute problem of burning dry vegetation in communities. Moreover, youth is the target audience of almost all public events in the framework of the project.
Gender Focus
The project pays special attention to gender equality; in particular, equal representation of women, along with men, in the project implementation has been supported. Additionally, a training course "Gender and Environment» has been introduced and distributed, and this course, along with other materials on gender equality, is also distributed via the Youth Climate Center.
