Action-Reaction is a Youth Exchange involving 32 young people 18 to 30 years old from 5 countries (Italy, Bulgaria, Greece, Poland, Slovakia) which will take place in March-April 2023 in Italy.
The project is conceived with the intention of bringing the theme of sustainability into youth work. The topic of “sustainability” is explored from different aspects, not only economic and environmental but also on learning outcomes and how we can create systemic changes that contribute to changing habits and have a long-term impact.
The objectives of the project were:
1. Raise awareness among young people on the issue of sustainability;
2. Provide young people with innovative methods and tools on the subject of sustainability, supporting them in reacting in an innovative way to environmental and
social problems and transferring them into their daily life;
3. Exchange the basic concepts of learning process design (non-formal education, Kolb cycle, NAOMIE) and apply them in practice;
4. Provide space to discuss specifics of work with groups with fewer opportunities and propose innovative ideas that support working with these groups effectively;
5. Provide space for young people to design non-formal learning activities on given topics, deliver them in a safe environment and get feedback on their work.
Youth exchange was for everyone who is interested in the topic and would like to travel and meet new people and cultures. Between the age of 18 – 30, leader can be over 30.
Participants were from Italy , Bulgaria , Greece , Poland and Slovakia . There were 6 participants from each country.
