WHAT AWAITS YOU
Our ten-month training is for young people between the ages of 15 and 25 who want to become active for the environment. Want to know the SECRET to our program? We use a unique “bottom-up” approach. This means, the training program is developed together with you and the other participants and is tailored specifically to the groups’ interests and needs. Then, together with other participants, you will help to plan and organize one of the training weekends!
During the training, you’ll not only gather knowledge, skills and motivation, but also be asked to turn your dream into a reality (regardless, of how big or small it might be). Generation Earth offers you a “safe space,” and supportive people, where you will not only gather needed experience, but also make a difference, now and in the future.
READY TO CHANGE THE WORLD.. and your life?
PLEASE READ THIS FIRST:
- You are not 100% sure if the Action Leader Training is something for you? Come to our non-binding get-to-know-you evening! We will answer all your questions and you will have the opportunity to meet other Generation Earth members. All details see below.
- Are you ready to apply? Great! Please use the form down below. We are looking forward to your application. The Kick-Off meeting from 21.-25.9.2022 is mandatory for all participants.
- As a participant you and a team of peers will plan and organise a project and design one of the training weekends.
- Some of the training dates also fall on school days; however, as this can be considered “continuing education”, you can apply for school exemption. We will gladly provide you with the necessary letter.
- Participation fee: A deposit of 50 EUR is required for participation in the Kick-Off-Meetig. If you decide to join the following four training sessions after the Kick-Off-Meetig, you will have to pay another 200 EUR. The total cost for all five training sessions is therefore 250 EUR. The fee covers accommodation, board and activities of the training program. We want to be sure that money does not stand in your way of participating in the training. Please note: The participation fee should not stand in your way of participating in the training. If for any reason, covering the fee is a challenge for you, please contact us under firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll find a solution that works for you. If the training cannot take place for certain reasons, the full participation fee will be refunded.
- The final application deadline is September 4 2022.
