This guide about responsible consummption was a key deliverable of the “YouthXChange in the Mediterranean Project” (YXC -med)  that was led by MIO-ECSDE through the MEdIES Secretariat and was co-funded by the the Anna Lindh Foundation (ALF), the EC/DG Env (through MIO-ECSDE core funding) and the  CP/RAC (through – UNEP/DTIE) (2009 – 2011). 

The YXC-med programme and the printed guide addressed the critical issue of sustainability in the lifestyles of young people of the Mediterranean particularly in terms of the consumption habits. Based on the respective  worldwide campaign of UNEP and  UNESCO the YXC-med specifically targeted the young people of the Mediterranean region.

The initial YXC guide produced by UNEP and UNESCO was translated to Arabic and adapted/enriched with Mediterranean-relevant case studies, re-produced and circulated to Arabic speaking countries of the region,
