1. EXPLANATION OF GREEN CHALLENGES

Innovative Green Challenges will be promoted through the platform and connected to the thematic days of sustainability, such as the Earth Day, the World Soil Day, the European Sustainable Energy Week, and so on.

The challenges will be designed in order to get the participants and the local communities involved in the project.

By participating in challenges, Youth Workers and young women can win national and international prizes.


2. STRUCTURE OF GREEN CHALLENGES

The structure of the challenges will be as follows:

  • 1 FIXED CHALLENGE PER MONTH following the World Days calendar;
