Young people tend to be more engaged into decision-making processes if they are aware of the problem and the role which they can play in solving it.

The main objective of EYES is to encourage young people to participate as active agents in the climate change mitigation process in urban areas that are marginalised or suburban, in order to promote a transition from a simple awareness of climate change to an active involvement.

Activity 1 - Training format: Methodology and Framework for Youth Engagement in Urban Marginalized Area

The first work programme of the EYES project focuses on the development of a methodology for training and associated modules aimed at improving the capacity of young people to develop awareness and encourage the participation of local residents and the population in environmental issues relating to climate changes in urban areas.

Activity 2 - Training format on the job: EYES pilot test

At least 30 youth (10 for partner country) are planned to be involved in the second activity of EYES which schedules three pilot tests to experiment with the training modules as developed in the first activity.

Activity 3 - EYES Urban Labs

Three Urban Labs (one for each country) will be organized as a series of local workshops facilitated by those who took part in the previous tasks.

Activity 4 - EYES demonstrative environmental actions

One of the main outcomes of the laboratory with youth is the decision and agreement to implement small actions that contribute to environmental protection and climate change prevention in marginalized urban areas.
Youth from the 3 Urban Labs and other local youth groups (including local schools) will be involved in planning and executing significant and effective environmental demonstrative actions.
Thus, youth groups taking part in the urban labs will plan and animate each action.

Activity 5 - Networking and EYES Scale-up

The partnership will focus in the final months of this project on the assessment, understanding, and codifying of the reproducibility of the entire project methodology within similar contexts as well on pilot test evaluation.
