This youth exchange aims to create a space where the participants can disconnect from technology to connect again with themselves, offering them the tools to focus on their self-development process. The participants will be encouraged to stay off social media and reflect on its negative aspects, analyzing the effects of social media on a person’s self-image and promoting the creation of more meaningful connections with their peers around Europe. What makes this youth exchange special is the fact that during the project there will be many open-topic workshops to really give the participants the chance to take initiative on the spot and facilitate workshops that are important for them. The project will be held in a rural and quiet environment surrounded by nature which will help participants to fully disconnect from their daily lives and focus more on the present and their personal growth.
Number of participants needed per country: 5 young people (18-25 years old) + 1 group leader (20+ years old)
Deadline for applications: 25 June 2023
