About YCP 2.0

YCP is a green literacy initiative organised by THE CIVICS Innovation Hub in collaboration with its partners Znanje na djelu/Wissen am Werk and the Sofia Platform Foundation, co-funded by the European Union. The project aims to enhance green literacy and sustainability skills among young people across Europe and the surrounding countries. Through a variety of engaging activities, participants explore different topics related to the European Green Deal. YCP offers a comprehensive learning experience that includes expert talks, group discussions, and hands-on assignments on online collaboration platforms. Participants are encouraged and supported to develop their own green project ideas. In addition to receiving expert insights, participants can co-host their own webinar and get individual consultations from experienced civil society professionals. These steps are designed to prepare participants for the YCP Campus, where they present their project ideas with the opportunity to secure a mini grant to bring their project plans to life.
