This online training is part of the project results of “Green Minded” alongside with the following:

PR1. Curriculum Green Minded Curriculum (based on status quo analysis and target group needs) has 4 parts: Module 1. Environmental awareness Module 2. Taking Initiative Module 3. Actions in Practice and Module 4. Sustainability and Future

PR2. Handbook: with training materials. The material is prepared on basis of the Green Minded Curriculum, with the focus on target group needs and non-formal education activities (identifying the schedule for the sessions, possible activities with description, resources needed, explaining the methodology of learning), and experiential learning.

PR3. Green Minded e-learning platform contains the same structure as Green Minded Curriculum and it could be used complementary to Green Minded

PR4. Testing Training Materials At least 24 trainers and 120 young adults will be trained in Baltic States

PR5. Green Actions In Practice Each learners’ group, supported by the trainer and the partner organization will plan and implement at least one green action (the local community could be involved in planned actions as well). So, in total it will be initiated at least 24 green actions (8 green actions in each country – Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia).

Project “Green Minded”  is a Nordplus Adult Collaboration project, that involves 3 partners from the Baltic States: Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.

Background of project implementation:

According to the World Economic Forum (2020), COVID-19 and the resulting economic downturn have forced millions of people into unemployment, and those aged 18-24 have been largely affected.
The main project target group is young adults as having the highest rate of unemployment they need to have support for using their potential in contributing to environmental problems, following UN 2030 Global Goals for Sustainable Development, a priority in EU Strategic Agenda 2019-2024: “building a climate-neutral, green, fair and social Europe”.
The Nordplus Adult Collaboration project “Green Minded” is aimed:

  • to increase young adults’ awareness of environmental problems,
    to change their thinking and behaviour in different areas: home, workplace and leisure,
  • to enhance environmental social entrepreneurship and active citizenship (including possibilities by EU Green Deal, EU Climate Pact, etc.).

The project will have a high involvement of stakeholders: 24 adult educators will be trained as Green Minded Facilitators, and potentially 120 unemployed adults will participate directly in the training, at least 24 eco-initiatives/small-scale environmental projects will be developed and implemented by participating
adults. Moreover, the training will be combined with e-learning possibilities, which will let reach a broader range of stakeholders not only in the Baltic States but also all over the world.
By participating in the project, adults not only will be changing their minds, attitudes and behaviour, but also will develop transversal skills highly required in nowadays labour market: communication, social, civic competencies, critical thinking, creativity, digital skills, teamwork, and so valued entrepreneurship.
That will help them to improve their employability.
