The project aims to include young people and other citizens in a debate on how to spend European Union funds dedicated to counteracting the climate change. The Youth Climate Strike, a grassroots movement, will be our partner in the project. Together, we will work on analyzing the problem and creating recommendations. The European Union is increasing pressure on its members to more aggressively pursue climate goals for 2030. Polish energy and climate policy is less ambitious, however, and the lawmakers are very reluctant to have an open debate with activists and organizations working in that space. We would like to change that.

Our project will consist of webinars and workshops in three voivodeships: Śląskie (Silesia), Dolnośląskie (Lower Silesia), and Wielkopolskie. Through those means, we will be able to connect and train activists and representatives of organizations working on climate issues. We will organize debates between the representatives of the civic society and institutions responsible for designing European Union funds budgets, which will hopefully result in the future implementation of projects working towards environmental protections in Poland.
