Seeking Eco Giants

The kick-off meeting of the SEEKING ECO GIANTS project was held on March 1, 2023, in Bologna, Italy. The meeting was organized by Jovesólides and attended by representatives from all partnering organizations. The meeting was an opportunity to introduce the project, discuss the tasks, and gather feedback from the partners to help shape the workshop.

The meeting began with a welcome from the representatives of Jovesólides and FormicaBlu. The project was then presented, with a focus on the project structure, activities, and next steps.

After a coffee break, FormicaBlu led a session on needs assessment to gather information for the workshop. This session involved a dynamic activity that focused on gathering needs and expectations from the partnership. The goal of this session was to gather more information that would help shape the workshop and prepare for Train the Trainers .

The SEEKING ECO GIANTS project partners from Turkey, Latvia, Italy, and Spain conducted baseline research on climate change in their respective countries. The research focused on the following topics:

  • Effects of climate change: The partners examined the impacts of climate change on their countries, including changes in precipitation patterns, temperature, and sea level. They also evaluated the potential risks associated with climate change, such as droughts, floods, and extreme weather events.
  • Policy on climate change: The partners analyzed the climate change policies and strategies implemented by their governments. They reviewed the goals and objectives of these policies, as well as the progress made in achieving them.
  • Climate actions: The partners identified and assessed a range of climate change actions being implemented in their countries. These actions included initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve energy efficiency, promote renewable energy sources, and adapt to the impacts of climate change.

Through this research, the partners gained a deeper understanding of the climate change challenges facing their countries and the initiatives being taken to address them. This knowledge will inform their participation in the SEEKING ECO GIANTS project, which aims to engage young people in decision-making processes and promote sustainable practices in their communities.
