Ecology for everyone – about cooperation between Polish-Lithuanian youth.

57

In November marked the end of the Eco-Journalists project, which supported the youth of Lesko and Vilnius in developing journalistic skills and expanding environmental awareness.

Students of the Secondary School named after Gen. Władysław Anders in Lesko participated in the Erasmus project. It allowed us to explore the topic of journalism and ecology, develop communication skills in English, and integrate and make new friends with students from Lithuania.

The result of several days of workshops and joint work was an ecological portal – www.the4elements.eu, run in three languages: Polish, Lithuanian, and English.

The main goal of the portal was to raise awareness of recipients and sensitize them to the problem of environmental pollution. Articles written by young people focus on the most important issues related to ecology – they present problems affecting climate change, contain advice on what to do to contribute to the problem as little as possible and educate through street surveys and interviews with interesting people from our environment.

“We believe that we will be able to show as many people as possible that anyone can be an ecologist and that we will be able to make them interested in the topic and inspire them to take care of our planet.” – says the participant of the program.
