The envisaged impact: we expect that youth workers with specific skills will acquire more skills to enable them to cope with the everyday working challenges, to be more motivated to participate in EU projects, to be more fluent users of European languages; equal learning opportunities will be provided for young disadvantaged people, by combining more specific skills to become self-motivated for continuously improving and extending the gained skills; an environmental mind-set will be developed and it will be interesting for people to start eco activities.
The potential long-term benefits concern low-skilled youth, facing economic obstacles and cultural differences, who will find attractive ways both to learn about circular economy and practice it.

The added value is critical thinking, decreasing the consumption of plastic, digital skills, raised awareness of eco protection of Europe. We expect multiplication of the project results, their implementation into their daily practice and creation of strong network in environmental protection by actively involving youth.
