Green Urban Youth


  • About the Project

Nature and climate protection is not merely an issue of the countryside. With more than 50 % of the world population living in urban areas it is an issue of the city. „Green Urban Youth – Let’s reclaim the Cities“ is an Israeli-German youth exchange project concerned with sustainability in the urban sphere. It was initiated by Deutsche Schreberjugend and several stakeholders in Israel, with the Arab Jewisch Community Center in Jaffa and the department of sustainability of Tel-Aviv-Jaffa municipality being the driving force behind the project on the Israeli side. This broad network offers manifold connections for activities and involvement; therefore, urban gardening, the protection and fostering of communal green spaces, water protection and climate justice are just as important issues in the project as are waste reduction, recycling and upcycling, participation and the "right to the city" in general.

  • Nature & Ideology - A Youth Exchange Project Of The Invasive Kind

Nature and environmental protection in international youth work is your thing? Then check out one of our other projects, "Nature & Ideology". In this project our Greek partner Agrio Rodo and us from Deutsche Schreberjugend are looking at how ideologies and worldviews influence our perception of what nature and environment are. We will also see how people(s) are discriminated against under the flag of natural order and preservation of the environment and think about what this means for us and an inclusive and solidaric approach to nature and environmental protection. We are looking forward to your participation!
