With healthy lifestyle for inclusion | Youth Exchange | 24.08-1.09.2024 | Poronin, Poland

This project is organised thanks to Erasmus+ Acreditation in the sector of Youth which our NGO obtained for the period 2022-24. As part of this wider programme we organise 3 seminars and 6 youth exchanges. The main aim of this mobility is: Increasing environmental and health awareness and strengthening the involvement of European youth in activities of this nature, through direct access with a non-formal education program to a group of 40 young people, including 15 people with fewer opportunities of various nature, including health problems, and through additional promotional activities and disseminating results reaching to a wider group of several hundred young people.

The youth exchange itself which will take place in Poronin. It will be attended by young people from 5 countries: Poland, Cyprus, Ireland, Italy and Lithuania, 7 youth plus 1 leader from each country, a total of 40 people. The main methods of work are – workshops, presentations, discussion on the forum, happening, conversations with residents, tourists, peers, working with social media, using English, evaluation activities, national evenings, reflections and impressions. Each of us will participate in the project through their involvement and support for colleagues, active participation in the implementation of the schedule, gaining knowledge and exchanging opinions. After the exchange each participant and organisation will be involved in dissemination activities, including promotion in social media channels.

Participants will share 2,3 or 4 people rooms, all with private bathroom and TV. We will have a separate party hut to make disco, barbeque party, etc. 5min walk from our venue there is a shop where you can buy most of things you might need, you can pay with card or polish currency. There is no money exchange in a walking distance so better to exchange currency while in Kraków (but not in the airport where rates are bad). We will serve 3 tasty meals per day, with polish typical cuisine lunch usually. Coffee, tea, water available all day. Please inform us max. 2 weeks prior to exchange if you have any dietary needs (vegetarians, allergies, etc.). You need to bring your own cosmetics and towel. It is important to take appropriate clothes and shoes, comfortable for workshops and staying indoors but also good shoes, sport dress and something against rain and colder weather outdoors. Take swimsuits if you want to go to hot springs in your free time ☺ Please have on your mind that we will go for a mountain walk and have some activities outside. In August in the mountains it changes quickly however in general it is still summer here.
