Project description:

“Green Youth Leaders”is going to be a youth exchange organized in Berne, Bremen in Germany which will include 45 young people and group leaders from 5 different countries: Czech Republic, North Macedonia, Spain, Croatia and Germany.

With our youth exchange „Green Youth Leaders”, we want to address the topics of environmental protection and youth activism by implementing a youth exchange on these topic. By spending ten days outdoors on a Campsite being connected with nature, we want our participants to learn about nature protection and
becoming active members of their community through being in nature and being active and sporty together.

Through organising activities such as outdoor games, canoeing and climbing, we want to encourage the
participants to try out new activities and discover the fun sides of being physically active together. 

Project goals:

  • Address the lack of motivation and clear information that youngsters have regarding sport and active lifestyle
  • Encourage the participants to try out new activities and discover the fun side of being physically active together
  • Make participants more aware of easy ways to incorporate outdoor sports into their daily routines
  • Show to youngsters the positive effects outdoor activities can have on their physical and mental wellbeing.
