Germany is regarded as a model for the countries of Eastern Europe in the field of sustainable economy, social responsibility and environmental protection.
Sustainability requires not only compliance with standards for Environment Quality, but also the orientation toward social justice. For this reason, the youth exchange deals with these two issues from the standpoint nuclei of human rights and environmental consumption and as a connection point between the two – the Sustainable Consumption. Young people are informed and encouraged to think about the issues and share their own impressions, and their ownership is strengthened. This will provide information and useful advice for sustainable consumption in Bulgaria and Germany, as well as information about the project and the names of the parties.
