The project is being held in Smolyan, Bulgaria – for 7 days from 18th to 24th September 2018 with the participation of 5 partner organizations from Bulgaria, Portugal, Georgia, Greece and Romania. There will be 5 young people and one leader from each country. There will be trainings and discussions on the elements of the urban environment and the formation of the urban ecosystem. Young people will discuss the problems and achievements of their city and how to activate their community to improve their quality of life in a good environment of their settlement.
Through group work on topics, brainstorming, exchange of good practices, case solving, young people will enrich their knowledge. They will be preparing a flashmob that will perform at a national folklore event and in the city center. With pictures of the activities, the youth will make an exhibition in the foyer of the Ecoworld Rhodopes Youth Center, located in the central part of the city and visited by many citizens, young people and children. For the youngsters, a „Welcome“ night will be organized, national nights for each country, traditional games, and the last evening – a cha-chao party. Nonformal learning methodology encourages young people’s active participation, creates a peer learning space, and enables equal learning, regardless of cultural, educational or social background.
