These are some examples of projects that have been submitted so far:
Support for Young Climate Pact Ambassadors:
Climate Connect: aims to establish a network in universities, all over the world, to help students and young people to become climate activists, find support and launch projects themselves.
Local activism to put pressure on local politicians: wants to provide surveys and other data on specific climate issues, provide a match-making mechanism between politicians on EU level and local politicians to get legislation formulated and passed on most pressing local climate issues.
Stepping up individual climate action:
Sustainabrain: would like to educate young people on climate change and climate action, develop educational prototypes for primary and secondary school that can be delivered by qualified teachers so that it eventually can become part of the standard curriculum.
Education for climate action:
Project Clean-Green: aims to equip young people with the tools and techniques to mitigate the climate crisis in their local environment, for example through an education platform and a local tree-planting project. To create awareness and develop training programs so that participants can develop their own training projects in their communities.
Compulsory technological climate education: wants to develop an interdisciplinary digital tool for climate education (for example infographics) that can become a part of the compulsory education at schools. Moreover, social media would be used to engage young people in a fun and innovative way.
Local Exchange Platform: would like to provide a platform for connection between business and ecological startups to generate climate innovation. A mentorship program for young entrepreneurs is envisioned that will help them to succeed and simultaneously bring innovation into established businesses.
Stepping up youth involvement in climate policy:
EU, youth and environment documentary: aims to develop a documentary to give concrete examples of what can be done to tackle climate change through youth engagement. It would entail a clear call to action at the end to empower people to get started.
EU youth Advisory Board: envisions to create a meaningful youth engagement mechanism that is regular, structural and diverse ensuring that youth voices are heard in the EU climate and environmental decision-making processes. Introduction of mini publics as consultation boards for governments at national and EU level to evaluate policies, ensuring that young generations account for a certain % to guarantee a broader involvement of young people.
Permanent youth assembly on climate action (PYACA): would like to develop a process that allows that youth climate proposals can be channeled to decision-makers. The mechanism would entail that the proposals have to be taken into account for legislation to a certain extent.
