LEAVING NO ONE BEHIND
Climate change is one of the greatest challenges that humankind faces. In the face of a climate emergency, a fair transition towards carbon neutrality should be carried out so as not to leave anyone behind. Our Youth Work experience has proved that such transition can only be delivered through youth participation, with cooperation between all members of society from local to European authorities, civil society, and young people from all diverse backgrounds.
The objectives of the "Leaving No One Behind" project are:
Our project aims to open the Leaving no one behind in the transition to the climate neutrality topic, which is a subject of huge importance, in order for the Green Deal to be as successful as possible.
What we want to achieve with the current project is to reach the most vulnerable and excluded first, by creating a youth participation project for the commitment to Leave No One Behind, we aim to show the importance of working towards inclusion in the climate change issue.
Youngsters with fewer opportunities are one of the most sufferings because of the climate crisis. We have designed the current project in order to fully support such youngsters to respond to the impact of climate change and contribute local youth efforts to climate solutions.
Leaving No One Behind Project is a very special project, aiming to include in the Global warming process everyone even the most vulnerable and excluded one. One of the main target groups of the project are the Roma youth and the youth with fewer opportunities. We are currently implementing the project therefore you can join us
The knowledge about the green deal is crucial for every young person, because the more important a person is on a certain topic, the more able they are for making racinal and informed decisions. That is why we organised a two days (with a preparation) European Parliament simulation on the topic of the green deal on all of its spheres and dimensions. In the event attended 30 young people from our target group. We also included a hackathon part, where the youngsters had to create their own ideas on ways of protecting the environment in an effective way. The event was led by the first Innovation hub in Bulgaria- Innovation starter, with a facilitator Leona Aslanova. Our partners from Innovation starter set a prize for 1000 leva for the team which has the best working idea, which is also applicable in a short amount of time. The prize was won by a team which came up with the idea of creating a fountain of water for drinking, in the center, instead of using and buying plastic bottles. All of the outcomes of the event were more than admirable and we gladly invite you to all of our next events.

Our project's initiatives
As the damage posed by discrimination, including in Climate Change, increases it is more and more needed for organizations across the nation to work on developing the topic to bridge the gap. By sharing widely our project aims and results we expect to inspire other organizations to work on the topic and support its importance. Our project aims to have a positive impact on addressing the many harmful practices that worsen climate change along with environmental injustice towards the ones that suffer from it the most.
With the non-formal education methods, the project is going to expose young people to the topic of youth participation in the sphere of Climate Change which is going to result in a positive social change.
