A Youth Exchange is a meeting of groups of young people from different countries who gather for a short period to participate in a non-formal learning programme (a mix of workshops, exercises, debates, role-plays, simulations, outdoor activities, etc.). With the support of experienced youth workers, participants in a youth exchange can develop competences, become aware of socially relevant topics, discover new cultures, and strengthen values like solidarity, democracy, etc.


SUMMARY:

This call is for the Youth Exchange "Embracing Diversity and Inclusion" that will be implemented in Vienna, Austria from Sunday 4.09 (arrival day) to Monday 12.09.2022 (departure day).
