Embracing Diversity and Inclusion

- ERASMUS+ YOUTH EXCHANGE -

Core Info.jpg

Our mission is to aid in the transformation from large scale, mono-agriculture to small and local holdings that spread throughout cities, and to reduce net carbon emissions as a result. To support the development of ecologically integrated cities, with active and aware citizens who contribute to personal and ecological health with the consumption of locally tended to healthy food, increase in connection to earth and wellbeing. To foster an understanding of restorative urban agriculture and the associated benefits for mental health, society/communities and the local and global environment. We aim to achieve these with a combination of nature-based practices, along with mindfulness, optimal psychology and reconnection tools.

Aims:
1. Improving our understanding of diversity, social inclusion, and intercultural awareness;
2. Developing our understanding of the importance of peace and human rights in society;
3. Developing our ability to explore and multiply the positive impact of interculturality;
4. Exploring practical methods for enabling diverse groups to effectively work together;
5. Developing our communication skills and self-confidence related to diversity values.
