Erasmus+ Youth Exchange on the topic “Green activism: Hiking for Mother Earth” 🌿♻️

The Youth Exchange „Green Activism: Hiking for Mother Earth“ took place in the very pleasing on the eye Struga, North Macedonia between 19 – 27 of August, 2022.

This event gathered together 56 participants from 7 different countries- Bulgaria, North Macedonia, Slovakia, Turkey, Greece, Serbia and Sweden.

For the 8 days of this Erasmus project the participants learned about the elements of green activism, what does it mean and how t become green activists; how to plan our own local campaign and how to raise awareness of the environmental problems. Participants also had a chance to implement their local campaigns involving the local people in Struga, but also to plan their local actions that they can organize and initiate in their own local communities.

Every day they started with morning rituals such as meditation, acro-yoga, breathing methods or Swedish massage.

There were many interesting activities like City hunting in Struga and Orienteering game in Ohrid! There was a small hike organized to the mountain near by and the village of Vevchani. Also, the youngsters learned to trust each other even blindfolded and to communicate in silence, developed different skills, and had a chance to learn more about Erasmus+ programme and Youthpass.

We are happy to see that together the participant has been having a lot of fun and enjoyed every moment of the project while learning useful information about Green activism, practices and implementing their campaigns!
