Start date: 23 Aug 2016, End date: 22 Jun 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Youth exchange between Samfés Youth Council and Clare Youth Service in Clare County, Ireland. The youth council of Clare County comes to Iceland to participate in Samfés's National Congress and the general assembly of youth councils in the fall of 2016. There they are active participants in the scheduled activities as well as preparing and organizing 2-4 workshops. From that workshops we will create projects related to mental and sexual health which Samfés's youth council will organize and make available to all youth clubs and youth houses in Iceland. Samfés Youth Council will then visit Clare YS in Ireland in the spring of 2017 and assist them to adapt Sexting course of Samfés Youth Council to the Irish reality. There will also continue the work and development with other potential projects that arise in cooperation and communication between the two councils.The first idea of the project started with communication between Samfés and representatives of Youth Work Ireland while they were talking about relevant topics and sharing good practices. Samfés Youth Council has variety of informal education to offer as they have experience in creating educational bundles and Clare youth council has experience of creating informal curriculum on mental and sexual health.The objective is diverse with young people in the foreground to learn from successful association, learn from one another, present projects, meet new people, new culture and a new country. Young people can influence their peers, established their ideas, increase youth democracy and use diverse methods to be heard in the community.
