YEA Regional Training

ECO-UNESCO is offering free training to teachers, leaders and young people on all they need to know about the Young Environmentalist Awards programme and how it can benefit young people. The training is designed to help young people become well-equipped to carry out their very own environmental action project and is especially worthwhile for teachers and students new to the programme. 

The training will provide support and advice in developing project ideas, exploring what is involved in project management and helping to understand the various phases of the YEA programme in a fun and interactive environment.

Training for YEA 2017 is available free of charge to all registered groups (up to 25 participants per school/group including teachers/leaders). Training can be delivered in your school, youth or community centre.
