The Green Netiquette (GNET) Project aims at promoting the use of environmental-conscious netiquette as a transversal skill and competence (as outlined by the ESCO classification) and to raise awareness and promote good practices for an environmentally and people friendly use of digital technologies.

GNET pursues its objectives through knowledge-based, bottom-up approach actions involving youth and youth workers in practical activities inspired by learning-by-doing methodology.

Its objectives are:

  • Identify, highlight, and promote good practices for an environmentally and people friendly use of digital technologies

  • Stimulate debate on the topic of Green Netiquette among EU youth and youth workers

  • Increase quality and appropriateness of youth work on the topic of environmentally and people friendly use of digital technologies

  • Give visibility to common values and foster green digital participation


GNET Project is structured in four steps and activities:

(1) Platform for dialogue on digital good practices and environment and people friendly behaviours

The e-platform will create an opportunity for the participants to share their thoughts and gather feedback from others.

The platform’s goals are raising awareness on Green Netiquette best practices;

  • UN Agenda 2030, role of youth in fighting unsustainable practices both at micro and macro level;
  • Young people being exposed to the concept of sustainability and brainstorm on how to implement the Agenda
  • Young people increasing their fluency in foreign languages
  • Young people being trained in sustainable practices
  • Young people being invited to reflect on the contribution they can possibly give in racing a more equal and sustainable future.

The e-platform aim is to inspire young people towards EU and global citizenship and towards diversity inclusion and trigger a positive rebound on the European and international youth sense of EU citizenship, with a particular focus on the SDGs. The e-platform contributes to increase the number of young people from every background and their educators informed on EU’s role towards global sustainability and the SDGs, in addition to developing their soft skills and increasing the awareness of their importance as European esprit ambassadors.

(2) Best practices booklet

The booklet will give participants the knowledge and examples needed to share, adopt and promote best practices regarding environmentally friendly digital education and etiquette. It will list good practices and tips and tricks useful for implementing digital etiquette and environmentally friendly behaviors in this matter. The booklet will then be uploaded on the platform for both dissemination and educational purposes.

(3) Public debates on digital platform

The Green Netiquette project aims to prompt an inclusive debate among youth groups from different States and backgrounds, in an effort of conveying in the same forum the many voices of contemporary society. Green Netiquette aims at raising awareness among young people on the topic of digital education and etiquette and environmentally friendly digital practices.

Based on the contents of the e-platforms, the partners will organize public debates in their countries in the second year of the project in order to provide training opportunities for young people. The partners will give workshops to young people also involving their youth educators by using the contents of the E-platform about digital education and etiquette and environmentally friendly digital practices. The aim of these debates is so that the young people involved in the project can apply what they have learned on the platform and partake in experiential learning. Thoroughly trained moderators will ensure the smooth running of each session.

The debates will result in:

  • increased awareness of good practices for an environmentally and people friendly use of digital technologies among young people and youth workers;
  • improved skills in public speaking, creative and critical thinking, presentation, and other soft skills for young people;
  • strengthened skills of youth educators in the project’s aims;
  • increased interaction between youth workers from different backgrounds;
  • increased visibility on the importance of sustainable approaches in technologies and Internet use.

(4) Dissemination Strategy and Final Conference

The Dissemination Strategy will allow the partners to reach a wide number of young people to contribute to raising awareness of the importance of promoting education about digital good practices and environment/people-friendly behaviours online.

The final conference, to be held in Athens both in presence and online, will allow the partners to reach this objective because experts in the field will be invited to speak and explain the importance of digital good practices and environment/people friendly behaviours.
