Erasmus+ Youth Exchange for youths organized in Murcia, Spain by Youth Creative Action in partnership with Fundacja "Zielony Słoń" (Poland).
Summary of the project
Informal group of young people “Youth Creative Action” (Spain) & “Inovatyvi karta”(Lithuania) together with partners initiates a project "Plant Your Citizenship!"
It's based on rising awareness towards environment and how we as citizens can make a change when we work together. Over 40 participants from 8 different countries will focus on creating a community garden and with that leaving a special trace from each participant. The activities during this project will create an interesting learning platform for sharing knowledge.
Project aims to visualize the Erasmus plus program in hope to reach out to the target groups suitable for Youth Exchanges. It encourages citizenship by demonstrating for youngster the ability they hold to make a difference, impact society to participate actively in the community.
The project is straightforward to visualize Erasmus+, shine a light on sustainable development through nature preservation and grass-root projects, and encouragement of mobility through citizenship. We believe by aiming for these issues we are also addressing needs of visualization of youth programs, environmental awareness and encouragement of citizenship.
