NEXT STEP information - 4 de Outubro



Next Step - youth workers in climate action


Dates: 06/11/2023 to 10/11/2023 (5 DAYS + 2 DAYS TRAVEL)


Venue: Felgueiras (Porto), Portugal

The Next Step project aims to respond to the problem of a lack of youth participation in the design and implementation of policies to combat climate change. The climate crisis is one of today's most pressing challenges, and involving young people in finding and implementing solutions is essential. This is yet to be a reality, with its role being primarily advisory and not very representative of the diversity of contexts and needs of this age group. In several European countries, despite many people joining the Student Climate Strike and several politicians avidly consulting young people, this does not occur in a structured way. (European Youth and Climate Change A Community Baseline, 2021). When we talk about young people in vulnerable situations, these opportunities are practically non-existent. There are several obstacles to the full participation of young people in decision making processes associated with the climate crisis.


Contribute to strengthening the youth sector by promoting mechanisms for inclusive youth participation in the context of responses to the ecological and environmental crisis we are experiencing. Considering the problem and related needs described, with this project, we intend to respond to them by investing vehemently in the training of youth workers, including workers with fewer opportunities, preparing them to train young people and support them in the creation and maintenance of participation mechanisms that are efficient, structured and inclusive.
