We are pleased to invite you to the launch of this toolkit aiming to empower and inform youth, students and young adults living in Europe on how to engage and lead pro-environmental change.

The toolkit provides hands on guidance on how to take sustainable action and engage in eco-friendly behavior on four different levels: an individual, local & national, international and (social-media) communication level. The toolkit was developed by young authors under the Youth Empowerment and Training Initiatives (YETI) in Europe by UNEP-EU’s Africa, Caribbean and Pacific Multilateral Environmental Agreements 3 Programme (ACP MEAs 3).

The event, through selected panelists, will cover these four main areas:

1. Tips for behavioral changes towards a more sustainable lifestyle at home.

2. How to take sustainable actions in your community, school, university or country.

3. Engaging in pro-environmental change on an EU and international level.

4. Leading pro-environmental change through effective (social media) communication.
