Green Ljubljana

Did you ever want to change the world around you?

We invite you to join the group of  young people who will be trained to detect their super powers and external opportunities. Beside personal development  we will teach you all about  realization of ideas and project development. On the way we will  meet individuals who already Ljubljana enriched with their ideas, knowledge  and good work. We address them agents of change.
Together, we wish to create an incubator of  urban life quality, which will become a platform of education, support and realization of local initiatives.
Why? Because the future is created by citizens. We wish  to increase the number of proactive young people  in Ljubljana, who are spreading the virus of positive inquiries and successful experience of realization of  own ideas.

Currently, our project is named the Partnership for a Green Ljubljana because we want positive changes in the year, when Ljubljana bears the title of European Green Capital under the slogan: LJUBLJANA.  For You. Together with you, young people, and through the project cycle  we will create our new name.
