Action Bridge

Action Bridge is a 10-day outdoor youth exchange for youth aged 15-25.

The aim of this project is empowering youth from rural and city areas to make own project ideas in own community come true, and so have a positive impact in their community. The exchange involves unemployed youth and fosters understanding of EU offered opportunities.

When?: 21-30. August 2013.

Participants: Age limit: 15-25.

Our objective is that during the program the participants discover their own importance and usefulness in society and their environment. The participants deepen their knowledge and understanding about EU supported possibilities. With the development and realisation of an own project, they realise that they can be active members in their community and can take positive steps towards a role model behaviour. The project uses the tools of experiential education, by actively involving the participants, creating situations which help to understand ones responsibility and capability for change and also gives own experience. During the exchange the participants work on their own project ideas while they give feedback and support to each other. They get to know others culture, local problems and develop EU wide connections. They find new methods like Appreciative Inquiry and coaching. The international environment and the findings about others culture empowers inspiration and adaptation of ideas and opportunities.
