Youth in Action project – Action 1.2 Youth exchange.

DISCOVER YOUR ENVIRONMENT is a project of environmental education realised in two different editions in Collesano, a small municipality of the Madonie Regional Park. It has foreseen the realisation of two youth exchanges with young participants coming from Bulgaria, Italy, Czech Republic, Sweden, Turkey and the United Kingdom.

The project, coordinated by a pedagogist and an expert in ecology, used non formal education activities to inform the young participants about the main environmental problems (for more information on the activities realised see the Booklet).

During the exchanges emerged differences among the young participants about the importance of the environment and of the sustainable development. Thanks to the realisation of games and creative activities the young participants had the opportunity to reflect on environmental problems while having fun.
