TOOLKIT FOR YOUTH ECO-ACTIVISM
NOURISH ERLL_BEING AND CATALYSING COLLECTIVE ACTION FOR EARTH
Order Printed Edition
This toolkit reflects a holistic and transformative pedagogy which draws from a range of learning theories to promote eco-activism. It features many system thinking models and nature connection methods, providing community formation, action-orientated and resilience-building tools for the youth. A narrative format encourages users to progress linearly along six phases of eco-activism, yet there are mechanisms for more experienced activists to navigate the toolkit according to pedagogy type.
Our collaborative projects are a direct and positive contribution towards the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals across Europe and the Global South
Global South Projects
Gaia Education’s Project-Based Learning is a dynamic learning approach in which stakeholders acquire appropriate skills and analytical tools while actively exploring real-life solutions to the challenges of designing sustainable settlements.
Our tools and models have proven useful to traditional and indigenous communities in the Global South as they find improved, more holistic strategies to manage their environments and villages, while addressing climate change vulnerabilities.
Projects promote integrated approaches to land management for healthier soil, nutritional yields, and enhanced climate resilience. They also support communities to establish social enterprises and local small businesses, aiming to preserve their unique culture, foods and ecologies, and to foster greater economic vitality and diversification.
Gaia Education is a key partner on a number of projects across Europe, the majority of which are funded through the European Union’s Erasmus+ Strategic Partnerships stream.
Our projects span across a range of European countries, with partners based in Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Ireland, Spain, Poland, Slovakia, Portugal, Sweden and the Netherlands.
Our European projects are rich in their variety and scope, covering all dimensions of sustainable development, focusing on areas such as youth education and mobilisation, community transformation and blended learning. We partner on projects with academic institutions, local NGOs, meta networks and national organisations.
