Germany // Youth Exchange “Share your difference” in Wiefelstede

“Share your difference!” was a multinational youth exchange that was held from 02nd to 12th of August 2014 in Wiefelstede. Participating countries were Slovakia, Germany, Estonia and France. In the past years we have already visited our partners from Estonia and France with young people from Ammerland that were between 13 and 18 years old. This year NaturKultur e.V. was the host in Germany.

Topic of the exchange this year were differences in European Countries and the 48 young people could choose between three ways of working with the topic: Photography, Film and Theatre. Through the creative way of working the young people got to know about the topic through a funny way and worked towards a final presentation, that happened on 10th of August 2014 in Wiefelstede.
In the next year we will travel with a group of young people from Ammerland to Slovakia. Most probably the next exchange will be about sports as it was elected during this years youth exchange.

This project was financed by the European youth program “Youth in Action” by the German National Agency “Jugend für Europa”. Other sponsors were: Trattoria da Osvaldo, Wiefelstede, that prepared delicious lunch for the group, Butterfly, die Biobäckerei, from them we received delicious organic breads and buns for breakfast, Büro Team Diedrichs und Oltmanns that supplied us with technical equipment and office materials and also Gemeinde Wiefelstede, Oberschule Wiefelstede and their employees and Landkreis Ammerland for dinancial support.

We thank all our sponsors for their great hospitality and to make this project possible!
