Our goal is to foster environmental awareness, enhance knowledge about ecology, and promote environmental protection through an exchange of experiences. This project was created by us, the participants, based on our interests and needs. We strongly believe in active participation and collaboration in all stages of our activities.
The project is built on the principles of partnership and the full involvement of all participants. It brings together 36 participants and leaders from Poland, the Czech Republic, and Lithuania, with participants aged between 15 and 18 years old. Our project utilizes non-formal education methods, including energizers, discussions, workshops, meetings, presentations, talks, happenings, intercultural education through games, collaboration with the local community, expert interactions, and evaluation sessions.
As part of a broader social campaign to promote ecological awareness, our project will create valuable educational materials such as films, publications, workshop scenarios, and knowledge contests. These resources will be used to benefit a wider audience and contribute to the improvement of the natural environment and increased ecological awareness in society.
Accommodation, food, and activities during the project will be fully covered. Additionally, travel costs will be reimbursed up to a certain limit.
What to bring:
Please pack comfortable clothes and shoes suitable for both indoor and outdoor workshops. Slippers, laptops, and cameras are also recommended. Throughout the project, our team will capture photos, which we will share online with all partner organizations before the end of the exchange. During our intercultural night activities, we encourage you to bring traditional food, drinks, and souvenirs from your country. It would be fantastic if you could prepare interesting presentations showcasing your country’s culture. Feel free to teach your songs and dances to all participants when you have the stage.
Insurance & Health Issues:
Participants are responsible for obtaining their own travel insurance. If anyone requires medication, please ensure that you bring an adequate supply, as we do not provide medicines or cover insurance fees.
If any members of your group are vegan, vegetarian, or have specific allergies, please inform us in advance.
We will soon send you a special task to complete before the youth exchange.
This project is financed by Erasmus Plus, enabling us to bring this valuable experience to life.
We eagerly await your participation in the Green&Go project and look forward to embarking on this exciting journey together.
