Part 1:

On the 30th of January 2024, Emphasys Centre organized a face-to-face Multiplier Event for the GENZ4GREENDEAL project in Cyprus at TESEK Limassol. During the event, members of the target group such as Youth Workers/Teachers and Youth Workers from Environmental Organizations and other stakeholders attended, who had shown interest in the activities that were conducted.

Firstly, participants were presented with the GENZ4GREENDEAL project’s aims, objectives, interactive map with best practices, youth workers’ handbook and the Podcasts developed throughout the project lifetime.

After the presentation, participants were invited to participate in an innovative role-play. During this part, the participants were separated into 4 different stakeholder groups; Government representatives, industry representatives, activists and scientists. The industry representatives, activists and scientists, had to gather evidence and arguments to influence the government representatives’ decisions on climate change policy. Once they had done their research, they expressed their opinions to the government representatives and the government made a final statement regarding its decisions. A debate round followed and in the end, the governmental decisions were finalized. 

Through this activity, the participants gained very useful insights about different topics that are affected by climate change, therefore touching on the project’s other modules that are included in the handbook, and further showing the different perspectives of sustainable development and its effect on climate change

Before concluding the session, a Q&A session was allocated at the end of the session for questions and feedback towards Emphasys’ representatives by the participants, as well as for discussing the project’s podcasts. The event was very successful with 20 enthusiastic participants learning about climate change and the need for sustainable development.
