Youth Participation

Supporting the next generation

The future of the planet depends on how we educate, support and empower young people here and now. We want to give young people the chance to shape the future by creating opportunities to get involved in the ecovillage movement through European projects.  

YouthLeader: Bridgedale360

The Bridgedale360 toolkit emerged from the EU-funded YouthLeader programme developed by GEN and partners to support youth involvement in and engagement with sustainability. It's a free online toolkit for anyone working with young people to encourage responsible citizenship and promote sustainable living. Read more about the toolkit here

European Voluntary Service

If you or a young person you know has ever dreamed of living differently, in harmony with people and planet, learning to work with nature and with others...EVS can make this a reality. We work to create fully-funded EVS volunteering positions in ecovillages to expose young people aged 18-30 to sustainable living. Find out more about EVS and see open positions here.
