Meet the mentors of the transformative learning experiences created for pupils, educators, and school communities in the field of ecological regeneration through the Sprouts Project
Youth in Action – Sprouts for the Future local project implementation has launched and little hands are busy digging in the soil, creating compost stations, and preparing cob. Along with the representatives in the Community of Practice, each local project benefits from the support of a mentor to help navigate them through the participatory process, bringing expertise and support. We previously shared about 2 mentors and are excited to share 3 more!
