The idea for the project came from YEE member organisations and it reflected the need for new creative ideas for workshops and actions aiming to raise environmental awareness. It was suggested to create a youth exchange about using art and creative ideas for environmental projects.

This project brought together young people from different countries. They had a chance to learn from each other by exchanging skills, knowledge and experiences in a non-formal setting. During the youth exchange the participants organised an environmental art workshops for each other - they shared different ideas and developed their creativity as well.

Aims and objectives:

The aim of the youth exchange was to provide a space for participants to share and develop their creative skills in order to create environmental projects to support their organisations and communities.
