Novo Mesto meeting: Young citizens in the Green transition!
Our invited youngsters from a wide arrange of European countries met again, this time in Slovenia! They had a diverse programme including presentations, workshops and debates regarding young people as instigators of environmental policies and climate action. On the 5th of October 2022 at the GRM Novo Mesto - School for Agriculture and biotechnology they had an open dialogue on “Our Green transition” - the role of youth in the EU Green Deal and paid a visit to SMETUMET ecological-cultural organisation as well.
The next day they went to a shop without packaging and also met at Knof & Stara Šola clothing store on sustainable fashion, and talked over reduce, reuse, and recycle.
At the end of the day the youngsters looked at their own role in this, and debated 'My Role in the Grean Deal' and presentated local initiatives as well.
We are already looking forward to pull together a fresh group of inspired youngsters for our next DEAL4EU meeting in Italy, early 2023!
