Proje detayları aşağıda ingilizce olarak verilmiştir;

Young people today have many concerns regarding environmental problems (Moore, 2003; World Health Organization, 2007). Young people are affected in a negative way from the environmental problems. They are both physically (Kahn, 2002; Pastor, Sadd, & Morello-Frosh, 2002) and psychologically (Lappe & Perkins, 2004) vulnerable to environmental degradation.

Researches in different countries have traced fear and pessimism in young people concerning environmental issues. Students, when asked to depict the earth in 50 years from now, depict a very gloomy future. Students’ drawings all showcase the anxiety and pessimism about deforestation, degradation of water sources, quality of the air we breath, global warming and pollution (Barraza, 1999).

These perceptions are an expression of ecophobia (fear of home or, as used nowadays, a fear of nature). Nowadays there is an increase in ecophobia mainly because we do not pay enough attention to the small manageable and local problems but rather focus on distant ones that we cannot even see directly, such as the melting of the polar ice caps that are so far away from us. Paying attention to distant problems makes us feel overwhelmed by them, scared and helpless. Of course dealing with the distant problems is also necessary but since we cannot immediately and directly do something drastic about them, we should focus on local action in our immediate environment. Young people are greatly disconnected from the outdoor environment, endangered animals and ecosystems and they run the risk of developing fears related to ecological problems (Sobel, 1999); such fears can lead to a further disconnection from the environment and environmental issues (Kahn, 2002). Therefore, tracing people’s concerns and emotions can help them to take action on environmental issues (Striffe, 2012).

What is more, people are so disconnected from nature and they have forgotten, or they have never even learned and experienced, the direct positive impact of nature to their health. Contact with nature is essential for our well-being (Miller, 2005). Briefly we can mention that nature can improve:
• physical and mental health (Maas et al., 2006; Fuller et al., 2007)
• stress recovery (Van den Berg et al., 2007)
• social cohesion (Coley et al., 1997)

Through this project we aim at:
• Raising awareness about environmental issues even to the people who were not interested in nature in the first place
• Living more mindfully
• Exchanging ideas and knowledge on the topic from people all over Europe
• Bringing to the surface the concerns of young people about the environment
• Create connections between people and the environment
• Boosting young people’s physical, mental and social life
• Bringing young people in touch with their close environment
• Enhancing their feeling of ecophilia (love for animate and inanimate life)
• Pinpointing the environmental problems (local and broader)
● Brainstorming solutions about these issues (personal and broader level)
• Bringing young people together to learn about and provide ideas for the problems that every country faces
• Giving young people the chance to change their behavior toward the environment, learn and practice active citizenship, disseminate their knowledge to their familial and local environment and put pressure on future policy-making

Participants Profile
● between 18-25 years old (the group leader should be between 18-35 years old)
● interested in human connection with nature
● motivated to work in this field
● willing to act as European Citizen for environmental issues
● young people without exposure to nature, leaving in an urban setting and without specific interest and knowledge about nature
● able to communicate in English at a moderate level (Participants with limited knowledge are also welcome if they are willing to try to improve themselves before and during the activity dates)
