Creating meaningful human links within one’s own community, also in response to European Youth Goal No. 3: Inclusive Societies.
Green Up your Community! was created in response to this need, to foster the social inclusion of vulnerable young people, by developing a prototype of an ideal community garden that looks at four dimensions: mental well-being, active participation, “green” skills, green architecture and landscaping.
Specifically Green Up your Community! aims to:
• IMPROVE the quality, professionalism and skills of youth organisations and youth workers on methodologies and techniques to address the needs of young people with mental disorders
• FACILITATE the integration and involvement of young people, especially those with social anxiety disorder
• DEVELOP AND MAKE AVAILABLE a prototype community garden
