We4Change aims to contribute to the EU Youth Strategy by engaging, connecting and empowering young people with skills and confidence to contribute to prosperous, cohesive and sustainable societies. Specifically by adopting a gender specific approach, the We4Change project is concentrated on empowering girls and young women (aged 15-25) from disadvantaged backgrounds and supporting them to build their confidence, develop digital and innovation skills, increase civic engagement and unlock their changemaking potential from a young age.
The project sets the following objectives:
- Engage, connect and empower girls and young women from disadvantaged backgrounds and inspire them to drive environmental change in their communities
- Organise and deliver We4Change Events and develop girls and young women digital and innovation skills; increase their environmental and active citizenship competences; build their leadership skills and confidence and encourage them to actively engage in society
- Train youth workers and mentors and enable them to effectively support female youth empowerment through digital action and civic changemaking
- Develop the We4Change Platform that will act as a support platform for girls and women changemakers, to develop a strong community that benefits from collective intelligence to lead change and develop adapted solutions
