The project

Eco-Tourism for Social Entrepreneurship Health and Well-Being Among Youth‘ is a KA210 youth project that aims to empower young people in rural and urban communities to engage with their green areas and take innovative action towards fighting climate change through the promotion of ecotourism.

The project involves young people and youth organisations from Estonia, Ireland, Portugal and Romania, which will be involved in local activities, webinars and 2 mobilties. During the project, a booklet, a website and an app will also be created.

The project has a Facebook page and Instagram page updated with all ongoing and scheduled activities.

Day 1

The first day of Eco-Tourism meeting in Dublin started with partners introducing their work with youth and outlining the project’s objectives and expected results. We also provided an overview of the project activities for the initial nine months, highlighting key milestones and target groups.

We moved on discussing the local youth activities to be carried out for the development of the “Booklet on Eco-tourism”. These will take place from January to March 2024 and will involve youth in the creation of sustainable tourist routes.

We also started to plan the first youth mobility scheduled for April 2024 in Estonia

The meeting ended with an exchange of good practices and a plan for dissemination and collaboration.

Day 2

On the second day, we took our partners on a cultural tour of Dublin! We explored the city centre, passing by the main city landmarks. These included the Dublin castle, the Molly Malone statue, Grafton Street, the Trinity College and the Spire. The day ended with a visit to the iconic Guinness Storehouse Museum.

The kick-off meeting in Dublin marked the start of an exciting journey towards sustainable eco-tourism and youth social entrepreneurship. We look forward to starting our local sessions and gathering young people’s ideas on the topic for community development!
