Youth Exchange “Youth 4 Health”, 23 – 30 August 2021, in Castrillo de la Vega, Spain

*** Call closed***

What do you know about healthy food? When was the last time you tried a new sport? How about practising mindfulness? On this youth exchange, you will explore all kinds of healthy lifestyles!

Dates: 23 – 30 August 2021

Location: Castrillo de la Vega, Spain

If you are curious to learn how to take better care of your physical and mental health, then this project is ideal for you. The project brings together young people between the ages of 18 – 25 from Spain, Germany, Croatia, Bulgaria and Turkey. Each group will be composed by 5 participants and a Group Leader (age 18+).

Not only will you learn about healthy lifestyles, but you will also get to know people of other countries and nationalities! Don’t worry if you’re not fluent in English – just be curious, everyone will try their best!

You do not need prior experience in the topic, or be a sporty person – all you need is motivation and curiosity to try something new!


Castrillo de la Vega is a Spanish town in the province of Burgos, in the region of Ribera del Duero. The municipality has extensive vineyard plantations, which supply grapes both to the local cooperative and to important wineries located in the area and attached to the Ribera del Duero Designation of
Origin. The house where we will stay is far from the town, surrounded by nature, surrounded by 200 hectares of oak forest.

The accommodation is a simple hostel, and you will share the room with 5 other people of your gender.

All costs for accommodation and food are covered by the Erasmus+ programme. Travel costs will be reimbursed up to 255€ for participants from Germany. We charge a 40€ participation fee.

The project is hosted by Brisa Intercultural.
