Evergreen Center for Sustainable Development, Beijing &
Youth Included, Czech Republic
Both China and Czechia face many environmental challenges. Pollution (air, water, and land pollution) and energy shortages are threatening the sustainability of communities. Both countries experienced a raise in population in the recent years. In China, migrant workers move from underdeveloped rural areas to cities, while in Czechia international migrants are settling to find a new home. The exchange partner’s aim is to explore how they can share their practices and environmental work with these groups.
