UNEP/UNESCO youthXchange

YouthXchange is a training kit on responsible consumption. It seeks to address the need for clear, reliable and youth oriented information on sustainable lifestyles. It includes a training guide, web-site, on-line discussions and related workshops. These tools provide youth with key concepts and empowering strategies for more sustainable consumption patterns and lifestyles. An additional goal of the kit is to make youth in affluent societies aware of the global imbalances in access to the basic needs and the impact of unsustainable lifestyles on economy, society and the environment. YouthXchange incorporates the relationship between economics, environmental fairness, and social justice so as to encourage youth to take shared responsibility for their society and participate in the creation of a better future.
