feedback from one of the participant:

“During the period of 27.09 – 05.10. I participated in YE in Palermo, Italy. The main topic was ´´fake news´´ also known as hoaxes. Thanks to this YE I have learnt how to protect myself from false news which are sometimes presented by media and at the same time I was told where to find proper information.

Except from that, I have also improved my personal and language skills. How?
I simply cooperated with people coming from different social and cultural backgrounds. I also expressed my ideas, opinions, feeling, and facts in foreign language on daily basis. It motivated me to be talkative, creative and innovative.

All in all, I strongly recommend everybody to take part in these kinds of programs in order to explore one´s limits! Always keep in mind: Life begins beyond your comfort zone!”


Summary what was youth exchange about: 

“No more lies” was a 7 day youth exchange that brought together young people interested in topics such as: youth participation, intercultural communication, traditional and new media, connection between media, perceptions and stereotypes. The participants lived together and got to know each other, shaed their opinions and ideas through a series of activities based on non-formal learning. They worked towards the production of a video that was projected during a public final event and a non-formal report produced by the participants about the risks of media misrepresentation of social phenomena. Used methods were be non-formal, non-frontal and participative, encouraging discussion and intercultural dialogue, in order to maximize the learning experience. Activities took place in the city of Palermo and in the neighborhood.

  • provide young people with a conscious approach to communication and its effects;
  • promote the active participation of young people in society;
