- Youth for Exchange and Understanding (YEU)
- PROJECT 2020
The project is hosted by Project 2020, a not-for-profit organisation based in Cardiff. Project 2020 is a Community Interest Company that works in areas of Wales and England developing innovative community projects and inspiring long-term positive change.
ABOUT THE PROJECT/EXCHANGE
The first Youth Exchange will take place between 1-9 December 2016 in Wales/United Kingdom; the second one in February 2017 in Thessaloniki, Greece.
The countries included in this project are Belgium, Cyprus, FYROM/Macedonia, Greece, Italy, Turkey and Wales/United Kingdom gathering 35 young people from YEU member organizations.
The aim of the exchange is to develop and promote a new positive narrative of inclusion, giving the chance to young Europeans and young migrants to meet and share their stories (their journeys) in order to match them with the needs of the communities they live in.
“THE JOURNEY! Stories of migration, tales of inclusion” will lead participants to reflect together on how to match the stories, skills and knowledge of the migrants with the needs and opportunities of the community they live in and become multipliers of “modern fairy-tales. All the activities that will be carried out during Convention will be based on non-formal education methods and experiential outdoor education.
