Call for Participants: Erasmus+ Youth Exchange
19. Juli - 26. Juli
Under Pressure? – Find your balance!
What would it look like if you broke out of your daily routine?
What is important to you in your life?
What does your personal relationship with technologies look like, and how does that influence your wellbeing?
This Erasmus+ Youth Exchange is an opportunity for you to break out of your everyday lives, punch your routines, exchange with others and engage in new experiences. By saying good-bye to digital devices for a week, we aim to increase everyone’s presence during the project. This gives you and us the opportunity to see things from a different perspective, to give creativity free rein and to focus better on ourselves, the group and our well-being. First of all, we will reflect on our usage behaviour concerning digital devices, the internet and social networks and how these impact our well-being and mental health. The focus is directed away from digital devices and towards freedom, well-being and the connection with oneself, others and nature. With non-formal learning methods, we focus on individual needs and learning goals of everyone and support the development of key competences.
