Let's Go Eco Tourism!
Start date: Aug 1, 2016, End date: Jan 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The young people who came up with the idea of the project are youth concerned about European Union’s problems, particularly sustainable development. Due to rapid development of many industries and human activities we think that natural environment is becoming more and more endangered and as young generation we feel obliged to take action. The project anticipates organisation of 2 youth exchanges which will be mainly concerned with the topic sustainable development and eco-tourism, both in Slovakia and in Poland. Young people from 5 European countries from Slovakia, Poland, Lithuania, Germany and Romania will take part in two activities.The main goal will be to raise awareness and make participants identify themselves with the idea of sustainable development. Moreover, the goal will be to provide knowledge about values and attitudes aligned with sustainable development and thereby strengthen ecological sensitivity in participants and local communities. Increasing the number of young people who share the idea of sustainable development in a society will be of importance. Then the follow-up event will be more focused on equipping young participants with the green eco-tourism skills and stimulating them to become more entrepreneurial in the working career.Project is designed in the way to first provide participants with generic information about the sustainable development and let them together explore topics of Europe 2020 strategy in a very accessible way using non-formal education methodology. Then in order to further engage participants and to ensure continuation of the learning process of participants, will take part in the second activity, where more emphasis will be put on eco-tourism, in order to look for solutions and business ideas which will be accordant with rules of sustainable development. It will enable participants to broaden knowledge and improve theirs entrepreneurial skills. This time will be also devoted to give participants chance to develop their eco-tourism ideas and stimulate their creative thinking. The goal of this event is to foster personal development and make participants more self confident future workers and business people.
