The greenery in a neighborhood or village is there for everyone, how do we make this an even nicer place for you and the young people in the neighbourhood?

Detailed description

Would you like to follow a Traineeship in which you will learn everything about nature in your neighborhood and where you can then involve your friends in devising and implementing beautiful projects in nature? And do you live in the province of Groningen? Then this Green Traineeship, where you come up with plans and where you roll up your sleeves, is really something for you!

All that greenery, or the nature in your neighborhood is very nice, but what do you actually do with it? If you could decide, how would you like to organize it? For example, consider:

- What else can be done, so that you go for a walk 'even' more often or exercise in the greenery in your area.

- Create a picking garden to stimulate awareness about bees.

- How you can create encounters in nature, because it is healthier for you and your friends to meet there and, what is needed for that?

You are close to determining it!

In short: your commitment

With a group of trainees (12-15 trainees) you will work together in two different villages in Groningen (this can also be your own village)!

The goal: a plan to adapt or manage the neighborhood greenery together with a number of young people from the village to which the neighborhood greenery belongs!

- You will receive training and workshops to arrive at such a plan, but also what can and cannot be done in that grove and how you take landscape design and development into account.

- We take you on excursions to example projects or organizations and companies that deal with this subject.

- And you will receive a workshop on how you can involve other young people to come to a joint plan that makes everyone happy.

Well prepared, you make the plan and you start with the implementation. Roll up your sleeves, saw, plant, sow. Everything you need to get to the final result.

What will you learn by following this Traineeship?

- knowledge about nature,

- knowledge about nature and landscape design,

- knowledge about management and maintenance of nature,

- you learn in which role you perform well and feel comfortable in a team,

- you get to know your talents,

- you learn how to involve young people,

- you learn how participation processes work,

- you will soon be able to enter into a dialogue in which you listen and ask further questions.
