Let's Do it ECO!
Start date: 01 May 2015,
End date: 30 Nov 2015
„Let’s do it ECO!” is a multilateral youth exchange that will take place in a village of Brasov County, located in the historical region of Transylvania, a beautiful but rather isolated part of Central Romania. For 11 days, 48 young people, between 18 and 25 years old (but no age limit for the group leaders), coming from Romania, Italy, Lithuania, Macedonia, Spain, Netherlands, Poland, Bulgaria and Turkey will meet in order to share experiences, learn and focus on concrete actions for promoting ecology and raising awareness about the harmful impact of man against the environment. They will acknowledge the importance of good ecological practices through concrete actions in rural areas by the use of non-formal education methods and inter-cultural dialogue.
We will establish links between the participants and the people from the local community, which will become more aware of how they can protect the environment and do less harm after their attention has been raised by the special actions performed in the youth exchange. Our main objectives are to realize a series of Eco Actions promoting good practices with a direct impact on people, to create interaction between the participants and the local community (especially the young people with fewer opportunities from the area) and to involve as much as possible local authorities and decision-makers during our activities.
Most important, we wish to promote the meaning of European Citizenship as being a way of life and not just an abstract idea, as it involves many good practices in the society. In our project we will focus mostly on the care for the environment and on taking action in order to make a difference in the community where you live.
