LTTA of the GREEN-UP Project: Empowering Youth for a Sustainable Future


We are happy to share with you the remarkable success of the 3-day Learning, Teaching, Training Activity (LTTA) of the GREEN-UP project, which recently concluded in Potenza.

This event brought together 30 young participants from Italy, Belgium, Slovenia, Greece, and Lithuania, all united by a shared goal: to promote environmental awareness and sustainable development.

Fostering Environmental Awareness

The primary focus of the GREEN-UP project is to raise environmental awareness among young people and to encourage sustainable development practices. Over the course of the LTTA, participants engaged in various activities and discussions aimed at achieving these goals.

Key Discussion Topics

During the LTTA, participants delved into two crucial topics:

  • Circular Economy: Exploring ways to minimize waste and make the most of resources.
  • Sustainability: Understanding the principles and practices that contribute to long-term ecological balance.

These discussions were not only theoretical but also involved practical applications and real-world examples.

Interactive Learning Methods

The training incorporated innovative educational methodologies, including peer-to-peer learning and flipped learning. These approaches allowed participants to actively engage with the content and with each other, fostering a collaborative learning environment.

Our participants gained valuable knowledge and skills through these interactive activities, which were designed to be both educational and enjoyable.

Highlights of the Training Days

The LTTA featured three main highlights that provided enriching experiences for all attendees:

  1. Learning Best Practices for Sustainable Entrepreneurship: Participants heard inspiring testimonies from young entrepreneurs who have successfully invested in green and sustainable businesses. These sessions provided practical insights and motivation for aspiring entrepreneurs.

  2. The Walk of Consumption Game: This interactive game highlighted the different ecological footprints of various human activities, helping participants understand the impact of their consumption habits.

  3. Development of Group Projects: Participants worked on creating marketing campaigns centered on storytelling. These projects aimed to address new environmental challenges and promote eco-friendly practices through creative and compelling narratives.
