The youth exchange "Dance It Out", that will take place in July 2019 in Slovakia aims to promote healthy lifestyle amongst the participants and there are going to be many various activities and methods in order to fulfil this goal. During the project, the participants will learn the basics of Zumba well enough to be able to practice it later and use it to keep healthy and fit. The programme includes also learning about nutrition and preparation of healthy snacks. Other activities are for example role-play, storytelling and there will for sure be many occasions to meet and interact with the local people and explore the city of Košice - the programme will for sure be very diverse.

Respect for Diversity - Everybody's Business (8. - 14. 2. 2019, Beirut)

After organizing two projects in Turkey, we decided that we are ready for - at least from a geographical point of view - a bigger challenge and we applied for a project to take place in Lebanon. Our partners were our favourite trainer Ieva and NGO Amel Association International, that provided great logistical support. The aim of the project was to explore the concept of diversity and to learn to lead young people to see it as a value and not a threat. The diversity in the project itself was very high because apart from Europeans, there were also participants from Lebanon, Turkey, Syria, Morocco and Jordan, which gave us a lot of opportunities for intercultural dialogue. There were many practical parts in the programme of the seminar - we organized short games for children in a refugee camp and a living library in the centre of Amel Association. We also visited the ancient town of Byblos and a detention centre where Lebanese soldiers used to be imprisoned by the Israeli. While evaluating the project, you could hear words as "unforgettable" and "life-changing" and we do believe that our adventure in Lebanon will stay in us and will keep forming our personalities long after we return home to our everyday routines.

Here you can read a perfectly detailed article about the project written by Lada, one of the Czech participants.

Kulturní toulky po Praze (2.2. 2019, Praha)

On 2. 2. 2019, we (six members of our organization) organized a trip to Prague in order to educate ourselves a little bit. We went to the National Memorial on Vítkov Hill and visited exhibitions connected to the history of Czechoslovakia - we saw pictures from the fighting at National Radio in 1989, we saw the last letter of Milada Horáková and much more. The most interesting was probably information about Klement Gottwald's mausoleum and his sloppy mummification. After lunch, we went to the National Gallery for an exhibition of Salvador Dalí and competed, who understands him the least. Before we went home, we managed to have a cup of coffee/hot chocolate and talk a little (also about the programme of this year's summer camp).

"EMpathY Emotional Management - The Path for Youth" (20. - 28. 11. 2018, Rumunsko)

In November 2018, the second part of the "Empathy" project took place in Romania, this time it was a youth exchange. The young people learned to better work with their emotions and their group leaders learned to teach them these abilities. The leader of the Czech group was Nikol, who the youngsters grew to love more or less as much as me and Jája in September. The programme involved energizers, discussions, cultural evenings and a trip to the town of Sighisoara - the birth place of count Dracula. Because the Czech group was coming form different parts of the Czech Republic, they had a lot of fun getting to know other dialects.

Digital Youth (15. - 25. 10. 2018, Turkey)

Because we really enjoyed the Digital Youth project, which we organized in October 2017, we decided to carry it out once more a year later. Our steps lead again to Turkey, this time to the touristic destination of Alanya. During the project, we organized a lot of non-formal learning activities in order to get familiar with the topics of intercultural dialogue and tolerance and we played various games in order to experience as much as possible on our own skin. At the same time, we had the opportunity to learn how to use the audiovisual equipment in various workshops carried out by professional filmmakers. In the second half of the project, we divided into filmmaking teams and each of the teams created their own film - there were 6 of them in total plus Aftermovie (a kind of "behind the scenes"). In our free time, we were getting to know each other, making friends, chilled at the beach and on the last day, we made a trip to explore the town of Alanya. On the last evening of the project, the moment we all expected finally took place and we watched the created movies. They were just as awesome as we expected them to be. We had a great time at the project and we are very much looking forward to making more movies in May in Armenia.

Nature and Primitive Technology (end of August 2019, Spain)

The youth exchange "Nature and Primitive Technology" will take place at the end of August in beautiful Spanish mountains near to the town of León, which is full of historical sights. There will be young people from the Czech Republic, Spain, Greece, Croatia, Finland and Italy. The aim of the project is to experience living in the countryside away from civilization and technology. We also often don't realize, how much easier technology is making our lives, so during the project, we want to try to take care of ourselves on our own - to cook a meal, create simple tools, etc. This will definitely lead us to discuss topics such as leadership or sustainability, we will also enjoy many teambuilding activities, interesting workshops and games and get to know new friends from various countries.
