During the month of April, the Young Intervention Team of Granollers called Groups for Climate Action started a video campaign called the EYES Challenge. The EYES challenge was based on a series of videos where young people explained why they were taking part in the EYEs project and why they cared about sustainability and climate change.
Four young people Helena, Júlia, Eva, Maria and Maliha started and tagged members of the Advisory Board such as the influencer Mónica Rosquillas who posted a video to also explain why it was important for her to be part of the EYES project. She said that she is part of the EYES project because “climate emergency is a challenge that especially affects young and vulnerable people. We need to act now and it’s a global problem that has a global effect but local solutions can be put in place”. Eva, one of the youngest members of the team also mentioned that her main motivation to be part of the project was because it is important to act now!
We came up with all of these on a mentoring session meeting between the YIT and AB and partners’ members we are doing online. You can find all the videos here. They are in Catalan but if you want to start your own challenge let us know and we can nominate you! Or well… you can start your own!
