The new International Youth Meeting is approaching!
La Rioja region's first regional event
As part of the MUWI Festival in La Rioja, Mindchangers made a space for ourselves by bringing in a “mindchanging” artistic experience! With the help of a renowned graphic artist, Mrs Raquel Marín, several youths enjoyed a training cycle out of which 9 artworks were produced and exhibited outdoors. The artist also performed a live show painting focusing on climate change. Many youths approached our event and took interest in Mindchangers!
Mindchangers participates in the Climate Game On Final Conference
Mindchangers is taking part in “Climate Change: Game Over or Game On?”, the Climate Game On Final Conference, a 2-day hybrid event to discuss the role and potential of gamification as an awareness raising and educational approach, as well as the crucial role of youths to help tackle the current triple planetary crisis.
Capacity building for youth leadership in La Rioja!
Congdcar with the collaboration of the Government of La Rioja organised the 2° capacity building for youth leadership in La Rioja! The goal was to raise awareness and train attendees about global issues such as the environment, migration, and youth leadership.

Trainee for Change: 45 young people determined to plan the future of our forests!
Last June, as part of its “Trainee for Change” project, Forêt.Nature organised a week of training for forestry students and young professionals in collaboration with Parc naturel des Sources. Trainee for Change aims to show forestry students that ensuring a more resilient forest through a different approach to forest management is possbile, although it requires a long-term commitment during their studies and then their careers. With this project, students are also made aware of their important role in raising public awareness.
