About the project: 

According to the United Nations Environmental Program, the Mediterranean region is warming 20% faster than the global average. With over 510 million people residing in this area, this warming trend could lead to a doubling or even tripling of water demand by 2050. If global warming reaches 2°C, precipitation in Southern Europe could decrease by up to 30%. This underscores the need to raise awareness among communities facing the climate crisis about the impact of individual actions and the importance of social solidarity. Recognizing the heightened risk of natural disasters, particularly in coastal regions susceptible to floods, erosion, and the salinization of vital water sources, it becomes crucial to prepare future generations and mitigate potential impacts. As project coordinators, we've observed that only 64% of young people aged 15 to 25 in the EU have taken steps to address the climate crisis. Many express commitment but lack clarity on effective engagement methods and fail to grasp the significant impact of their behaviors.
