KOSE is a guide that has been produced to help events such as seminars and workshops meet their deficiencies in inclusivity, restorativeness and sustainability, to remove social and physical barriers and to carry out events in a way that is inclusive and accessible for everyone.
University student group of Roots & Shoots Turkey and the Youth for Good team decided that such a guide was needed as a result of their observations and took action upon that need. After more than a year of efforts put on the project and with the contributions of 12 experts, KOSE emerged!
The guide consists of short and easy-to-understand pre-texts and checklists, so that the activities can be carried out in a way that takes into account the rights and freedoms of all living things and minimizes the damage to the ecosystem within the framework of the principle of harmony with nature.
There are five pillars within the scope of the KOSE: 1) rights-based approach, 2) children’s rights, 3) harmony with nature, 4) waste management and upcycling, 5) inclusiveness, and under this heading two sub-focus areas: a) accessibility and b) gender equality.
