Youth Exchange: Youth on Earth – yes we c(are)
ecobasa is hosting another funded youth exchange in ZEGG ecovillage, Germany from 25th of August to 3rd of September 2018.
If you are between 20 and 30 years old and you are resident in Spain, Slovenia, Germany or France, you can apply for an amazing time to experience authentic community.
“Youth On Earth – yes we (c)are” is the eighth youth exchange of “Yes to Sustainability”, an international project that aims to bring together young people from different regions of Europe to make new experiences with sustainable lifestyles and practices by organizing youth exchanges in different ecovillages and rural projects, funded by Erasmus+.
What is a youth exchange?
It is an Erasmus+ project that allows young people to go abroad, to learn foreign languages and cultures, to learn best practises on youth participation and to contribute to a better world with the support of the Erasmus+ program. It provides an opportunity to join meaningful work and experiential learning while costs for food, accommodation and travel are funded.
From 25th of August to 3rd of September 2018
The ZEGG is one of the oldest ecovillages in Germany, founded in the nineties, where 110 people are living in close partnership and cooperation with the land around them and with its beings. The ZEGG is an intentional community and seminar centre and sees itself as a research project exploring socially and ecologically sustainable ways of living. A particular focus is the field of human relationships, communication and the issues of love and sexuality. Their ecological work is guided by the principles of permaculture. A reason to live in a community is to get into contact with other people and most importantly with ourselves.
Experience this holistically sustainable surrounding exclusively in a safe container of our youth exchange.
Programme & Activities
This exchange is for people between 20-30 years old, who want to co-create with us a safe space of trust, authenticity, mutual support and respect, where you can discover your authenticity and experience yourself in a group. By learning the basic techniques of communicating our feelings, needs and boundaries, we gain confidence and security in ourselfs, relationships and groups. We want to rise consciousness in the fields of social conditioning, love & sexuality, connection to ourselves, our bodies, nature and others through methods like Forum, Medicine Walk, Men-& Women Circle, Deep Ecology and Conscious Bodywork.
This Youth Exchange takes place in an ecovillage to show us a new perspective of sustainable living. In the mornings we will help the community in the garden and kitchen.
