Summary what was youth exchange about:

During the youth exchange participants discovered the basics of healthy eating​. They prepared a healthy daily menu,​ which was eaten in wild nature​, developing group work skills and learning about other cultures​. They did visual experiments about the sugar amounts in food and drinks we consume daily. Also participants searched for commercials from the city which influence people to consume more sugars and unhealthy food. There were also workshops where they tried some alternative ways to use sugar,​ like arts or making a body scrub. During the youth exchange participants also visited factories which produce high sugar level food and drinks. Participants could see how much unhealthy products are produced daily and can realize it as a huge health risk for all.
