Promotion of green volunteering is made through dedicated youth associations which focus their action on green volunteering and environmental impact such as Les Scouts, Nature et Loisirs, Empreintes, etc.
The International Youth Office funds many cultural youth projects abroad among which green volunteering projects.
Green production and consumption
Promotion of green production and green consumption is mainly made through the work of associations which focus their action on this specific topic. For instance, the "MJ Verte" project gathers nearly sixty Youth Centers across Belgium which are part of a global sustainable approach: sorting waste, vegetable gardens, compost, responsible purchasing, use of reusable cups, concert tokens made of corn, etc. It provides a "MJ Green Label" to Youth Centers who wish to embark on the path of in-depth, transversal, shared eco-citizenship, anchored in the action of the MJ with young people.
See section 9.4 for further information about green production and green consumption initiatives.
