Description of the youth exchange:

The project “ACT” is an opportunity to join a group of 5 people from Sweden and spend one week with young people from Belarus, Latvia, Sweden, Belgium and Macedonia in a nature resort park near Rezekne in Latvia. During the project you are going to be hiking together and doing other fun activities like team-building, orientation games, fishing and intercultural evening parties together. You are going to hike and sleep in a camp for two nights. Hiking will include a 10-20 km walk and will finish at one of the local farms where you will spend a little bit of time helping local farmers.

Conditions of Participation:

  • Participation in the youth exchange is free of charge (meals and accommodation will be covered by the project budget)

  • You will be accommodated in cabin-like accommodation in rooms of 2-4 people separated by gender. You will spend two nights sleeping in nature.
