Project report: 

Our youth exchange took place in the Portuguese mountains near city Covilha on 21.10 – 2.11 2019. The project was about Eco-citizen. Participants from Romania, Spain, Portugal, Slovakia, Norway and the Czech Republic spent 13 days together dedicated to environmental issues. This simple topic was gradually introduced to us in the form of presentations, discussions, lectures and other interactive activities.

We spent most of our time in nature. One day we went together to clean the local ski slope. We gathered full bags of clutter, which then drove to the collection yard. Most broken off plastic parts was from the sledge. The best experience, however, was planting firs in a nearby forest. Together we managed to plant 200 small trees. We took a guided tour of the surrounding mountains twice and saw the beautiful views this area offers. The program was interspersed with a trip to Covilha, where we spent the whole day. We not only looked at the local monuments, but also listened to interesting words from the mayor of the city.

Throughout the exchange, we worked in small groups on the “Lovely Planet” program. Each group was given a description of the country, which we then had to transform into a guide. At the end of the project, we presented our country from and saw the work of others.

The whole project was a success and the last evening we were given away Youthpasses.

We liked the project very much.
