The main goal of the project is to strengthen and increase Nordic-Baltic collaboration on the themes of SDGs by promoting sustainable lifestyle choices, green growth, sustainability and empowerment of CSOs in building the green future of the Nordic-Baltic region.
By this project we aim to increase knowledge of NGO leaders and community members, young adults and other stakeholders working with vulnerable groups about the importance of achievement of the UN SDGs and the need to reduce overconsumption, as it has a huge environmental and climate footprint.
Project’s activities includes: an kickoff meeting and I international training in Estonian on the SDGs in general, sustainable lifestyle and digitalisation (for target groups and high level stakeholders & NGOs representative meeting (what includes discussion days, training and workshops sessions and launch of the project); II and III international trainings and Study visits in Finland and Sweden); Nordic-Baltic Sustainability Conference 2024 with presentation of project main outcomes in Iceland (political statement, local action plans, web-resource and materials), as communication activities related with promotion of sustainable lifestyle and other crosscutting themes, networking and collaborations.
