Call for participants – Youth exchange

For People living in either Greece or Germany who are between 18 to 30 years old and have good English skills.
Europas Erfolg and Hellenic Youth Participation are looking for participants for a youth exchange on today’s social and environmental challenges!
During this youth exchange we will create a space to foster a honest conversation about today’s social and environmental challenges and motivate each other to become active in our communities.
Environmental challenges and sustainable ways of living are in the focus of the training:
What bothers us in our communities?
How can we become active in our society and be drivers for social and environmental change?
How can we make life in our communities more sustainable?
During the training you will:
● learn how to reflect upon the society’s realities both critically and constructively
● brainstorm about possibilities to create positive change that you can implement in your community after the training
● work on a specific project in a small group and build a prototype and project plans that can be implemented in both Germany and Greece
● discuss your ideas with people from the active civil and political society
Tools and working methods
Tools that are useful for project management will be part of the programme, e.g.:
