Mindchangers is a European project aimed at improving the capacities of Local Authorities and Civil Society Organizations in launching projects and activities to engage youth in the big challenges of our era: climate change and migrations.
Climate Change is a threat for societies all over the world, but often its major consequences are in countries and territories that have less contributed to the phenomenon. It is also one of the causes of migration, along with poverty, conflicts, and inequalities. Migration itself is a global challenge that has effects locally. More and more people are on the move. This requires a better understanding of the phenomenon, fighting the root causes and a collective effort towards inclusion.
It is a lot of work but that is why we must join forces – citizens, institutions, companies, governments – for the achievement of sustainable development and just and equal societies.
To better address the issues the engagement of European citizens is needed: Mindchangers was born to support Local Authorities and Civil Society Organizations with this task, innovating their way to talk to youth, to involve them as agents of change. This is essential, as young people are the driving forces and motivation for the whole society.
