Personal Development and Intercultural Understanding through Travelling
Youth Exchange: 16 - 27th September 2021
Travelling is a wonderful way to discover ourselves and the world we’re living in, to widen our horizons, to get out of our comfort zones, gain new perspectives, discover new cultures, have enriching encounters and so much more. We aim to encourage young people with fewer opportunities to travel and to prepare them for their upcoming journeys on a deep and meaningful level.
Find your strengths and connect to your courage
Overcome your fears and increase your self-confidence
Improve the way you deal with uncertainties and challenges
Connect with other people and cultures
EnCourage2 was a 10-day action-oriented Youth Exchange aiming at mobility and social inclusion of young people with fewer opportunities. Through a variety of activities embedded in the archetypal story pattern of “The Hero's Journey” 40 young people created their own vision for their personal Hero's Journey - their own path in life.
EnCourage2 gave a playground where young people could experience, reflect and improve their personal and intercultural competences with a focus on cultural awareness and social responsibility.
