Youth Center of Epirus took part in an international youth exchange project called “GPS- Green Power Support” in Egervolgye youth camp in Hungary from 8th until 17th of July, 2013. The youth exchange lasted for 9 days and a total of 42 participants took part – from Greece, Hungary, Italy, Spain, Latvia, Poland and Slovakia. The team of Youth Center of Epirus prepared and sent 6 participants from Greece to take part in this project.
The main aim of the youth exchange was to popularize the importance of physical activities, tolerance and acceptance among young people, so the main activities were focused on the movement and outdoor activities, as well as many mini-projects related to the topic of the youth exchange. Participants had a chance to share their views, experiences, take part in trips, workshops, debates, brainstormings and group works related to the main topic of the exchange. All working methods were supporting non-formal and informal learning of participants.
The Greek team of participants also had a chance to prepare an attractive and creative presentation about Greece and to share their culture with other participants, while learning about other cultures.
