It is a bittersweet feeling when a project comes to an end. We had a good time developing and implementing this project with our partners and we want to say: “Thank you for your effort, time and good energy”.
Now, we would like to share with you the results of the project Community Challengers – Towards sustainable & climate-smart communities through Arts & Social Entrepreneurship.
Firstly, we have The Sustainability and Climate Action Handbook.
The Handbook addresses young people and features sketches, infographics, and links to additional resources on climate action. It supports everyone to become aware of their potential to act for change as an individual, as a consumer, and as a part of a group or community.
Secondly, we have The Community Mapping Toolkit
This guide is for trainers and young people showcasing how to prepare, conduct and follow up Community Mapping workshops. The Toolkit is split into three parts. Part 1 is for offline work and contains the experiential and participatory methods of community analysis. Part 2 is online and contains a step-by-step guide on how to digitalise the community maps using digital mapping tools, in particular the free software MIRO. In Part 3, partners and trainers from across Europe will share experiences from the workshops.
In addition, The Community Challengers Guide was developed.
In this guide, you can see how to create artistic and entrepreneurial challenges with young people, help them reflect on their perception of climate change issues and get active in awareness-raising, information-spreading and solution-creation in their local community and beyond.
Part 1 focuses on art challenges in the fields of Film, Visual Arts, Performance and Music/Songs while Part 2 describes the 5-day entrepreneurship challenge, bringing together the format of a Hackathon with the topics of climate change, eco-friendliness, sustainability and activism.
Last but not least, we have The Advocacy Tutorial Series.
Check out this fun mini-advocacy tutorial series and see how to advocate. Through this ten – 2-minute videos you will emerge in the advocacy world and hear some inspiring young people.
All learning material is available in English, Italian, Serbian, Croatian, Portuguese and Latvian and you can download it on the Community Challengers Website.
Once again big thank you to the partner and we are looking forward to future collaborations with you.
