Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for a Youth Exchange called Act for Our Europe” which will take place from 19th until 30th June 2016 in Oeiras, Portugal.

During the activity, the young people will take part in several activities of non-formal learning linked to European diversity, in which we want to highlight not only the cultural differences that show the identity of each country, but above all the similarities that connect the participant countries, as a way of fight against stereotypes and contribute to the development of a more inclusive Europe.

Each day there will be a subject regarding Europe and activities under that subject. Some examples are Citizenship, Culture, Heritage, Sports, Social Causes, Sports and Healthy Life-styles or Environment. There will be group works, ateliers, and sport activities, cultural visits, volunteering actions, “Photovoice” and a street action. It's also planned a "Market of Cultures", in which each group will present his own country and culture to the local community.

The young people will have the chance to know the local community and to have contact with the Portuguese culture and habits and share at the same time their own culture with the other members of the group.

This event will bring together 46 participants from Portugal, France, Italy, Estonia, Bulgaria, Romania, Spain, Greece and Slovenia. The event will be held in English. There are 5 vacancies available and participants should have minimum 18 years old until 30 years old.
