End Climate Change, Start Climate of Change #ClimateOfChange – A Pan-European campaign to build a better future for climate-induced migrants, the human face of climate change

Programme “Raising public awareness of development issues and promoting development education in European Union (DEAR)”.


The project “End Climate Change, Start Climate of Change” is co-funded by the European Commission in the framework of the DEAR programme(Development Education and Awareness Raising) and aims to develop young EU citizens awareness and critical understanding of climate change induced migration, as one of the biggest challenges of the globalized world.

The main goal is to build a better future both for climate induced migrants and for young people who will face the worst effects of the climate crisis. Through the engagement of young people in Europe, the Project team will highlight the interdependencies of local and global inequality and to empower them not only to change their everyday lives, but also to become advocates on global justice issues.
