Intercambio para el desarrollo de estilos de vida sanos y con menos emisiones de carbono.
Start date: Aug 1, 2014, End date: Dec 31, 2014 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Exchange for the development of healthy lifestyles with less carbon emissions. During 16 days, two associations dedicated to youth dinamization and the development of environmental policies (UK Permaculture and Permacultura Cantabria) will organise the exchange of english and spanish young people in Cantabria, Spain. In this project we will deal with the current problems related to CO2 emissions and the environmental destruction. In particular, we will work about the effect of our lifestyles on the planet and on our own health. For this purpose, we will make workshops, dynamics, debates, outdoor activities, excursions, games and other activities aimed to have an unforgetable experience which would influence the consciousness of those who participate. We want to know other young people with similar concerns; to contrast our points of view and to come up with new ideas and formulas which allows us to widen our perspective and improve our team work. The methodology will be non-formal education, with a detailed and varied programme of activities created by the sending and receiving associations to be realized by the selected young people. In all the activities, workshops, debates, classes, etc… the young people will have a dynamic and active role. With this project, we aim to increase and promote the participation of young people in society in a logic, viable and committed way. This activity will take place from the 9th to the 24th of August in the ecological farm “La garma” in Llanos, Cantabria, Spain. This place was chosen because it is a good example of how a group of young people have undertaken sustainable projects The creation of this kind of programmes promotes a long-term view and offers the needed tools in order for young people to become the change and the social movement we need in our societies.
