Green Cities of YOUth

Increasing the role of young people in the development of sustainable cities





Final Youth Meeting, Miguelturra

The last youth meeting of the "Green Cities of Youth" project took place in Miguelturra (pilot town of the project), from November 13 to 19, 2023. A leader and seven young people participated, some of them with fewer opportunities, from Spain, Romania and Germany.

This opportunity was taken to share points of view and make proposals for improvement on the sustainability of our towns. In addition, activities were carried out such as: making graffiti with awareness messages in busy places, developing an awareness campaign, creating gardens with native plants in the area, reforesting the green area of ​​the pilot town with native plants (there were planted more than 60 plants between the different areas), or creation of insect hotels, in order to increase biodiversity and promote pollination of the area.

The young people had the opportunity to improve their social, communication and personal skills, as well as the different aspects linked to increasing knowledge in sustainability and environmental education. Therefore, we can conclude that the impact and achievement of the objectives of said activity has been positive and of great impact.
