Engaging Youth


Youth is a main public target of the Mediterranean Centre of Environment. Since 1992, the MCE involves young people in almost all its projects for the promotion and preservation of the Euro-mediterranean natural and cultural heritage.

Through training and volunteering, the MCE wants to provide young people with a transnational, human and professional experience.

One of our main action is the setting up and the coordination of international multi-disciplinary workshops for young people – the European Campuses for the Environment and Local Heritage.
