Youth Empowerment Association opens a call for 5 participants for the youth exchange “YOUth for Sustainability” taking place in Hiiumaa, Estonia from 4th to 12th of September 2022.

With more and more people moving to cities instead of the countryside our cultural knowledge has been lost on so many people. Classic village life – raising animals, growing your own food and working together with nature is seen as a low-life activity. However, the key to sustainability lies in exactly that and the negative stigma about rural life must be destroyed. With this exchange we want to show youth from all over Europe the power growing your own food gives someone.

Together with 26 youngsters from 5 countries (Estonia, Germany, Croatia, Slovakia and Macedonia) with different backgrounds and experiences we want to promote selfsustainability, food sustainability and biodiversity through different non-formal activities and creation of digital tools to promote it to non-participants as well.

All expenses during the project (accommodation, food, workshops) are covered by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union. Travel costs will be reimbursed up to 245€. For any additional questions contact us at
