Generate change toward sustainability through youth participation, sport and exploration

Greentrace offers an effective way to generate change towards sustainability through youth participation, sport and exploration.

Mission

GREENTRACE addresses the gaps of competences of youth workers, sport leaders and environmental educators, in providing effective active sustainable learning to young people.


The need for SUSTAINABILITY EDUCATION arises from young people's demand to create innovative, youth-driven solutions to face the climate crisis.
