The project will involve 16 participants, 2 from Estonia, Hungary, Poland, 3 from Slovakia and Romania, and 4 from Spain 18-35 years old. The project is implemented by 6 organizations and financed by the European Commission through Erasmus+programme.

For the participants’ selection the following criteria will be taken into consideration:
– Mix of existing and experienced youth workers but also youth workers who are new or newish to circular economy and environmental topics.
