Dear fellow educators,
Greetings from the heart of Europe. WWF is in the process of developing a new Global Education Strategy and within it I'M focusing on the Youth mobilization/leadership component. I'm looking for leads, ideas, and research that focus on youth (young adults 15-30 years old) and mobilizing /engaging /empowering this target group.
We have numerous examples of programs working with young adults, but we'd be interested if there was any research out there that we could "show" to support such work.
- Do youth leadership programs lead to greater environmental responsibility?
- Do they lead to tangible results, impacts, outcomes?
- What are the key components/good practices for having a successful youth program?
- Who are the most successful organizations (potential partners) & individuals working in this field?
If you have answers or leads, please forward them to me! and let's get the discussion started!
