Just Act

The EcoActiZenship is an Erasmus + KA1 project aiming to encourage youth to become more civically engaged while enhancing their digital background and identity as active eco-citizens of this world.

About the Project

​​This project aims to encourage youth to become more civically engaged while enhancing their digital background and identity as active eco-citizens of this world. Italian and Greek youth will get familiarized with active citizenship and civic engagement through activities linked to nature and trainings dedicated explicitly to digital literacy.  It is a Youth Participation Activity under the Key Action 1 of the Erasmus+ programme, funded by the National Agency of Italy with the code 2022-1-IT03-KA154-YOU-000063610

To empower and educate the future agents of social change, getting them to know and experience the importance of civic engagement through the lens of sustainability, eco-friendly practices, and digitalization.

To equip Italian and Greek youth with tools and skills of the 21st century, securing their participation in decision-making, civic engagement, and EU processes. Skills like critical thinking and media literacy, green skills, and digital competencies will be at the project’s core.

To provide young people with fewer opportunities, especially from rural and peripheral areas, with valuable experience to discover and improve themselves through awareness and engagement, including in the activities participants from remote areas that will feel part of a joint project.

To create links of communication and understanding between the participants-youth and decision-makers, helping the first ones feel part of a common community and the last ones to actively listen to the demands and needs of youth while accelerating the democratic process and participation.
