This youth exchange will aim to support young people living in natural and rural areas and will attempt to revive their desire to be in natural environments. It will raise young people’s awareness of nature and the important value that it holds. This will in turn encourage young people to support and participate in environmental protection and increase their connection back to nature as we believe the two can coincide and work together.The objectives of this project will be the following; towards nature. Objectives: - Increase awareness about environmental issues. - Increase practical knowledge in the nature. - Combine sport and non formal learning with nature- Increase problem solving skills- Expand meaning of nature among young people and connect with daily life- Challenge young people to go out of their comport zone. - Provide youth leader tools to work in Nature- To experience different natural environments; in the lake and in the forest. Back to the nature is a Youth Exchange that will bring together 40 young participants from Sweden, Italy, Turkey, France and Portugal. The exchange will take place in Örkelljunga Sweden, with visits in surrounding cities to visit and participate in activities with local youth center and organizations from around the region, as well as inspiring lectures and workshops. Non formal education methods such as Creative Drama, film-making, games, outdoor activities, sports, workshops will be main way to reach our objectives. IFALL and partners will continue to support the youth with funding for projects, support and help in developing ideas to make change in their communities etc even after the end of the project. These youth will also cause other youth in their communities to be inspired to become part of nature, thus causing a long-term multiplier effect. In fact, this project itself is a multiplier effect of previous exchanges between IFALL and partners.
