Start date: May 1, 2015,

"Back to the Nature" is a youth exchange from KA1 that is going to be held in Wiefelstede, Ammerland, Northern Germany from 17th to 27th of August 2015 and will bring together 50 young people between 18 and 30 from Germany, Estonia, Georgia, Norway, Belarus, Macedonia and Luxembourg that will share their cultures and gain international experience. This is a project as continuation from training and networking in Georgia in 2012 out of which "Be prepared. Be active" youth exchange in Georgia was organized, and "We are the world" youth exchange in Norway in 2014. The topics on this youth exchange are going to be preservation of the environment and healthy live styles joint with outdoor activities. The project is going to be last 11 days and the participants are going to camp, hike, ride bikes and do many more outdoor activities as part of the activities that should show to young people and the rest of our communities that we have to go "back to the nature" and have fun without using computer, telephones and Internet. The objectives of this project are to show to the participants the way to change the world and to have sustainable behavior throughout outdoor activities and workshops with non-formal and fun working methods. During the whole time we are going to be without Internet, laptops and other technologies and we are going to replace those with fishing rods, tree climbing and outdoor workshops on topics such as: how much trash do we produce every day, what kind of food we eat every day, how we destroy the environment every day, but also learning practical skills about camping, hiking of fixing the old bike. The expected results are that the youngsters are going to become change agents and are going to influence their communities to change and to become sustainable citizens that are open minded for other cultures and customs, care about their environment and have sustainable behavior in future.
