In October, 2015 14 volunteers from Spain, Belarus, Greece, Jordan, Portugal and Lebanon gathered in Metsäkartano to be part of Poke the Globe EVS project.
The main theme of this short term EVS project was international education and promoting EVS programme for the Finnish youngsters. Volunteers visited various schools and youth houses and instructed cultural workshops for the local youth. Outdoor work around the youth centre was also part of their tasks.
EVS volunteers planned and organized the project’s main event, international day called Poke the Globe, where volunteers presented their cultures, prepared typical food and inspired Finnish youngsters on international issues. The day reached almost 300 local students. The long term goal of the project was to make local youth more aware of different cultures, foster intercultural understanding and to make EU´s possibilities for young people more reachable.
