Connecting Local to Global


The YouthXchange Green Skills and Lifestyles Guidebook is the second in a series of thematic guidebooks supporting the UNEP/UNESCO YouthXchange (YXC) Initiative. The first guidebook was on climate change and lifestyles. This Initiative was created in 2001 to promote sustainable lifestyles among young people (15-24 years) through education, dialogue, awareness-raising and capacity-building. The series is produced for young people and the people working with them, such as educators, teachers, trainers and youth leaders around the world.  

The YouthXchange guidebook series gives young people ideas, actions and starting points towards a sustainable world. With nearly half the world’s population under the age of 25, with most living in developing countries, imagine the impact of young people as change agents in adopting sustainable lifestyles. If we add together our small steps, we will move towards lifestyles that help sustain our planet and our global and local communities.

Aims of the YXC Green Skills and Lifestyles Guidebook

· Explore the links between the development of, and transition to, an inclusive green economy.

· Inform young people about what an inclu­sive green economy is and introduce actions required to achieve it.

· Help young people consider how a green economy can help create more sustainable lifestyles.
