Organizator of the project: SHY GUY ASSOCIATION
The youth exchange will take place between 26th of April to 4th of May 2022 in the town of Sinaia in Romania.
About the project: The purpose of this project is to educate young people on democracy, society, and international cooperation. All activities will focus on social development and the improvement of cooperation. During the youth exchange, we will mainly concentrate on the improvement of critical thinking among participants, and on deepening their social and civic competencies. All participants will discuss and share opinions and experiences, learn practical skills, discover new cultures and share their own with others, interact and make an impact on the local community, and build new relationships and networks and raise awareness about the EU youth-supporting mechanisms.
Objectives of the project:
- encourage active democratic participation in local, national, and European contexts;
