April – October 2023
Last two years collaboration with HBS and GoGreen has led to Awarding Go Green for Youth participation, for the activities done in youth advocacy for local green changes. The cooperation continues in empowering young people to take local action, each year having different groups of young people enlarges the scope and people involved in these topics. The strengthening of cooperation between local youth NGOs makes it easier for youth to advocate for local change.
This year’s goal will be focused more on mobilization and empowering young people to raise their voice on local environmental issues and promoting clean energy and local-eco events promotes the urgent need for clean energy transition and the possibility of organizing many events with this approach – with less impact on the environment.
Specific aims of the project are:
–implementation of the youth demands for green municipalities
–promotion of clean energy
–strengthen capacities of youth sector to advocate for green initiatives in their municipalities
–support the implementation of the Law on Youth by strengthening the environmental advocacy by young people
–increasing the youth participation in environmental decision making processes on local level
This project is financed by the Heinrich Boll foundation in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
