Yeşil Çember advocates “barrier-free” environmental education accessible to all citizens in Germany. We raise awareness of sustainable lifestyles, especially among Turkish and Arabic speaking communities. For this reason we develop easily understandable and culturally specific educational materials, train environmental ambassadors, organize intercultural events across the country, run campaigns (e.g. as part of the German Action Days on Sustainability), offer nature trips, cooking and herbal workshops and much more.
Yeşil Çember is a member of Berlin 21 e. V., SEND e.V., Gemeinwohlökonomie, SuperCoop, Generationenforest eG and Klima-Allianz Deutschland e.V.
The project conveys the positive vision of a better, climate- and environmentally conscious life with less stress through the reduction of waste, consumption and possessions and thus a small ecological footprint.
Many people do not participate in the Global Learning and Wellbeing for All debate. They are often marginalized, feel that they are not being addressed, that their opinions do not seem important or that they do not have access to the discourse on this topic.
