Youth Voices into Climate Policy!
DEAL with it! is a EU Youth Project to strengthen young people to actively engage in climate policy. The goal is to strengthen their knowledge and experience on climate change, sustainability and climate policy, in an exchange with climate policy experts from the fields of politics, science and civil society. They are critically reflecting political processes and formulate demands towards EU representatives.
DEAL with it!
...brings youth into exchange with experts, politicians and civil society activists
...strengthens their knowledge on the EU Green Deal and political structures of the EU
...enables critical reflection of processes of international/European climate policy
...offers a small contribution to finding solutions to the climate and sustainability crisis
...creates visibility for voices and perspectives that are often missed out in the climate debate
In the first project phase, all partners conduct Living Libraries in their countries. In the online Living Libraries, young participants have the opportunity to engage with and ask questions to living books, which are experts in sustainability, the SDGs, climate change and climate policy.
A delegation of 4-6 youth from each country will then participate in the following phases, to develop visions and demands. These will be handed to EU politicians in the context of the Czech Presidency of the European Council. Finally, their visions and demands will also be made available to a broader public via an online exhibition.
