Promoting youth participation in just transition


The present initiative aims to empower young people and to make them actors in the definition and implementation of solutions that provide inclusiveness in the green transition.

Detailed Call Description

The beneficiary will accompany young people in the implementation of projects that increase participation and involvement of people, who are less exposed to the benefits from green transition. “Less exposed people” are understood as persons with limited awareness and understanding of the impact of “green transition” on their professional and private life and who at the same time have limited resources and/or opportunities to express their needs to be able to participate in the definition of actions for sustainable transition.

 The beneficiary will organise a call for projects, open to teens and groups of teens willing to volunteer to develop and implement ideas that allow “less exposed people” to benefit from the green transition.  A group of teens or an existing association should demonstrate that teens or members of the association involved in the project fulfill the age and territorial criteria, e.g. declaration.
In their project proposals teens have to: a) identify “less exposed people” and b) develop ideas to increase their participation to green transition, c) explain how those people will be involved in projects and d) describe how they will measure participation and results. Projects could take different forms, e.g. from setting-up of a participatory process to testing concrete solutions.

Cyprus is covered as a whole and in Greece the region of Western Macedonia, Megalopolis and Crete and the Aegean islands are identified as such regions.
