Our association considers that Green Youth is a Key Piece to peace in this situation when due to Climate Changes the social calm is changed, or Climate Change can damage or may exacerbate existing social problems..
Are Youth prepared to Climate Changes Social Movements?
In spite of concrete progress, the environmental impact of the tourism industry, in terms of air and wather pollution and carbon emissions remains a matter of concern which should be properly addressed for the industry to grow sustainably.
Green Youth is a Key Piece to peace.For us, this is not only a matter of responsibility and respect for the environment. There is also a great opportunity to develop a green tourism industry that can a vector for socio-economic development at the local level, a vehicle to learn about each others culture and, last but not least, a way for a deeper understanding and peace building on a people to people level like Bucharest Green Holiday fest.
