Sustrares

Sustainability, Transition & Resilience Watch Video
In this Project:

Overview

SUSTRARES project aimed to create and strengthen training paths and resources based on real-life applications for resilience, sustainability and self-sufficiency.

SUSTRARES main activity was a 10-day training course  that involved 36 young people from 6 different countries (Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Croatia and Germany) aimed to become familiar with concepts such as sustainability, self-sufficiency, transition and resilience, at both theoretical and practical levels.

Cinergies produced a video diary of the SUSTRARES training course

In depth

In the course of 10 days, participants carried out a programme of mixed activities (participatory seminars, practical workshops, exercises, debates, role plays, simulations, outdoor activities, etc) that enhanced their skills and competencies and allowed them to experience a multicultural simulation of living in an ecological community.

Cinergies also produced small interviews with participant reflections from the training course:

The main activity was hosted in the premises of the STAGONES Sustainability Academy (www.stagones.org) in Vlachia Evia, with very experienced trainers from few of the most active sustainability transition/ self-resilience collectives in Greece, namely Stagones, Nea Guinea, iliosporoi network, and UfiT, trainers from professional associations like Place Identity, We deliver taste and Perivoli Korinthou, from the international network SEYN (Sustainable Energy Youth Network), as well as trainers from the other project partners.
