Funding amount

27.065 Euros

Description

In October 2021, the UNW launched the new “Climate Trainees” project, which aims to increase the awareness of young professionals about the need for sustainable development and to support concrete commitment in professional and private environments.

The “climate trainees” are supported by the Mindchangers project, which is co-financed by the European Union through the DEAR program and is implemented in Baden-Württemberg by the Baden-Württemberg Development Cooperation Foundation (SEZ) and the Baden-Württemberg State Ministry .

Over six project days - spread over a year - the participating trainees are sensitized to recognize the connection between global problems, climate protection and their own work and lifestyle through theoretical and practical input as well as excursions to exciting institutions and companies. The project days are intended to encourage the trainees as sustainability multipliers to develop concrete starting points and ideas for their private or company environment and to tackle their first activities.

Description

The “Community Changemaker 2030” project aims to equip young people with skills that contribute to the transformation towards climate protection and diversity at the local level.

Five young people are trained in the area of ​​project management: They learn how to respond to local challenges and find and enable their own solutions. The project also includes intensive exchange with the South African partner group, as well as cross-border mobility experiences that broaden global perspectives and promote the development of empathy. Strengths-based methods and the focus on storytelling enable the collection of success stories, which are disseminated together with the partner network as part of an intensive communication strategy.

Sustainable 4 Nature

Funding amount

39.600 Euros

Description

The “Sustainable 4 Nature” project is an interactive, low-threshold information and educational project to raise awareness among teenagers/young adults about current climate, environmental and nature conservation issues.

The participants should design the project modules themselves and establish connections between everyday actions and their effects on global connections and develop impulses for action on a sustainable, resource-oriented approach to nature.

The project offers creative methods involving actors and young people from the Global South. In this way, global connections can be conveyed authentically and the connections can be internalized sustainably and realistically through offline/online dialogues, workshops and excursions.

We shape the social-ecological transformation

Promoter

One World Forum Freiburg e.V.

30.09.2022

Funding amount

30.000 Euros

Description

How can we actually contribute to profound social change towards greater sustainability and global justice through educational work? This is the central question that young adults address as part of the project. We strive for a deeper impact by having young global learning multipliers deal intensively with this question in two advanced training courses and a practical phase.

In the practical phase, the multipliers independently develop and implement innovative educational offers and podcasts in the area of ​​climate justice. So you apply the content of the training courses practically. The practical phase makes it possible to reach a larger group of people and thus achieve a broad impact.

We give you our childhood story

Promoter

Ars narrandi eV

Runtime

Funding amount

36.500 Euros

Description

“I’m half…” is often the unconfident statement made by children whose parents come from different countries.

The project gives young people without a secure place in society the chance to speak. Through exchanges at eye level with diverse partners, we empower multipliers with migration and/or refugee experience to work in school classes and meeting centers as well as later for public festive appearances with a mixed audience. We consciously create an alternative narrative that reinterprets and enhances childhood stories as part of humanity's experience and conveys sustainable attitudes for the future. Children are initially the recipients of the project, which promotes self-confidence and mutual understanding.
