Youth Exchange “Art4Youth”, 15-26 February, ONLINE

**** Call closed ****

If a Do-it-yourself-approach and an interest in environmental protection is who you are, this youth exchange is for you! Together with young people from 7 European countries, you will explore how to raise awareness for environmental protection using a variety of arts!

Dates: 15th-26th February 2021

Location: Online – ZOOM

“Art4Youth” is going to be an online youth exchange which will include 35 young people and 8 group leaders from 7 different countries: Spain, Croatia, Lithuania, Greece, Romania, Italy and Germany.

The youth exchange will focus on the topics of environmental protection and finding the ways how to reduce pollution in our everyday life. To explore this topic, we will use Art as a powerful tool for youth to become active and make a change in our communities and inspire others to become active as well.

The Goals of our project are therefore:

  1. To show how art can be used for youth activism and in the discussion around important topics focusing on environmental protection
  2. To give tools to youth from 7 different countries, empowering them to make the change in their local community
  3. To create safe space where youth can explore their creativity and try different forms of art and share their culture and values with others

How is the exchange going to look like?

  • Sessions from Monday till Friday during the last two weeks of February (15.02-26.02)
  • The sessions will last 3 hours, including a 15 minute break
  • Learning by doing, non-formal methods and group work
  • Getting to know each other first, then trying different types of art and in the end an online art exhibition
  • Cultural presentations of one of the countries every day

The youth exchange will take place on Zoom, and the entire programme is for free.
