Project Description

The ‘Take Action’ project was formed with a wish to raise awareness of the Sustainable Development Goals and to inspire young people to take action in implementing the goals in their local communities.

In the development of this project, the work was divided into a theoretical part through which study was carried out on the pedagogical methodology used, the 3H model (Head, Heart, Hand), as a basis for creating the educational tool and the guidebook.

The second part, a practical part, was based on three workshops, one in each partner country and a final conference. From the workshops, held in different environments (outdoor/indoor) with different target groups (young people/teachers/youth workers), the team collected resources and feedback that were used in the creation of the tool and the guide, supported by the pedagogical study.

We hope that by using this tool both youth workers and young people will gain useful knowledge about sustainable development goals, the importance of working towards a more sustainable future, and get concrete ideas on how to take action in their everyday lives.
