One of the greatest problems that the world is facing today is that of environmental pollution, increasing with every passing year and causing irreparable damage to the earth. Photography is a creative way of raising awareness and an excellent tool to express the ecological issues that affect our environment. This project will not only highlight the existing eco-problems, but it will also encourage people, especially youngsters, to search for an environmentally friendly solution. The project’s main objective is to include the younger generations in environmental matters and to inspire them to engage in its improvement by raising awareness in their communities. The youngsters will be encouraged to express their view on the ecological problem through pictures taken by them and presented at an online exhibit. MENS SANA IN CORPORE SANO will enable the participants to meet other people in order to discuss environmental issues and look for creative and effective ways to resolve this worldwide matter. Meanwhile they will improve their English through non-formal learning, they will also be introduced to the benefits offered by the Erasmus + program and of course they will have an amazing opportunity to meet youngsters from other countries. Using photography as a learning tool will give young people a ”voice” and motivate them to protect their environment.
