Place: Rustavi, Georgia
About the project:
The attitude towards the environment is important for all generations and concerns the whole society. But we think we have the chance to make a change because we are the next generation. This is what we identified as our main need: informing as many people as possible about everyday practices to save the environment or at least to have the least impact as possible. It is our turn and our responsibility to make a difference. But first of all, we need to learn how to do so. The best is not to work alone but to partner up with other young people across Europe, to learn together and to exchange our knowledge on what we can do as the next generation. We want to work on this topic with workshops, excursions and photography and learn how to get active in our own society. Photography will be the key element because we believe that photos are a powerful tool to transport a message.
