Go Green, AIESEC Macedonia and the Union of Scouts in the Republic of Macedonia organized a project which aimed to increase awareness and educate young people about the topic of sustainable development and environmental sustainability. The project was composed of two major events (indoor and outdoor day).

The indoor day was realized as one-day seminar at the Economic Faculty in Skopje held on 4th December 2010. There were 100 delegates from all three organizations, aged between 14 and 22. The purpose of the seminar was to raise awareness and to connect and empower young people to take an active role in shaping a sustainable society. The opening ceremony was in the form of a panel discussion on the topic: “The role of youth in creating a more sustainable environment”. The EU Ambassador, Mr. Erwan Fouere, was the key-note speaker and also a panelist. The other panelists were Mrs. Liljana Popovska (Member of Parliament), Mr. Metodija Sazdov (President at the Macedonian Green Center) and Mr. Petar Lazarov (Entrepreneur and Co-founder of Macedonia Export).
