Our 5th KA1 Youth Exchange has been a total success!
A few days ago, we enjoyed our 5th Youth Exchange in Madrid! The topic was how to recycle in a dynamic way.
KA1 R3CYCLE has been a project that has united 48 participants from 8 different countries: Spain, Italy, Portugal, Romania, France, Germany, Greece and Bulgaria. We had a lot of fun and all of them learned a lot about the topic of recycling. We did all the activities and some of them where very good to know each other, they have become great friends!
With this project, we wanted to raise awareness among young people and citizens who were involved of the benefits of recycling, since usually people are not aware of the importance of reusing materials. At the same time, the project aims to know the different techniques of recycling and what is done later. It is especially interesting to train the participants in this field knowing the whole environmental process that is applied in Europe.
The project was organized with physical activities and environmental methods which were tools also to promote active citizenship among young people, intercultural dialogue and that overcome barriers and fears, to play and work in teams and to be able to accept and understand any person, wherever they come from.
We organized a series of activities, all related to the world of Recycling that were realized in a recreational environment, open spaces and outdoor places; all of them connected with the non-formal education of young people.
