Youth worker handbooks

As time runs out, climate change starts to affect our daily lives. Many young people want to lead the changes needed to save the environment, but few understand what needs to be done. By empowering young people with the key competences, we can work together for a better tomorrow. Creativity, critical thinking, leadership, and resilience are some of the vital skills needed. Whether you are a young person or a youth worker, the section can help you gain the knowledge and skills needed to fight the change.

Practical Innovate Nature Education (PINE)

This handbook is an innovative environmental education programme aiming to enhance personal development, social inclusion and an appreciation for environment.

It was designed by young and enthusiastic volunteers for teenagers aged 14+ tackling inclusive education and training.

You can find out more about this project by visiting our PINE project webpage. Download the handbook by clicking on the picture below.

Mediterranean Youth Versus Climate Crisis (MeYou)

The following manuals were created during the Erasmus+ KA2 project Mediterranean Youth Versus Climate Crisis. This project aimed to empower young people as agents of their own sustainable future. By raising awareness amongst young people and communities about climate change and encouraging exchange of good ecological and nonviolent practices, we can work together to fight the climate crisis. To find out more about this project and its on-going work follow the Facebook page.

The following manual has been designed so youth leaders from all over Europe can enjoy a comprehensive learning experience which aims to empower them with knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to fight the climate crisis with nonviolent perspective and techniques. The manual covers three modules: Peace within, Peace with nature and Peace with others. Download the manual by clicking on the picture below.

This manifesto was written with the aim to share a youth-friendly framework of knowledge, actions, and policies capable of making evident the close link between the perspectives of ecology and nonviolence in addressing the challenges of our time.

Field teaching resources for young people

These activities have been separated in two categories:

+ Formal field teaching resources
+ Non-formal and informal field teaching resources for young people with autism spectrum disorder or learning difficulties

Our schools programme includes a visit to a BirdLife Malta nature reserve. As part of this visit, we have created educational worksheets to help students to fulfill curriculum requirements and get the most of this wonderful learning experience outdoors.

Non-formal and informal field teaching resources for young people with autism spectrum disorder or learning difficulties represent a complementary category of learning about the environment.

You can find out more about this project by visiting our PINE project webpage. The resources can be found below.
