Pennabilli, Italy

30th November – 11 December

5 members of our association traveled to Pennabilli last December to share with young people from Czech Republic, Greece, Italy, Portugal and Romania 9 days in a Youth exchange developed thanks to the Erasmus plus program. The participants worked in different skills and initiatives that encourage entrepreneurship. They did it through games, simulations and teamwork.  The youngster were from rural areas since one of the main goal of this project was to balance the lack of opportunities in rural versus urban areas.

It was an exciting experience for all of them; they visited successful initiatives and learned to develop a project. They created their own project that in the case of Somos Europa presented to one of the schools in our municipality, to CEIP Olivarillo. It is an ecological garden project in the School with which the children will learn to develop a garden in all its phases. The teachers were enthusiastic about the idea and they are considering putting it into operation.

We would like to thank the Organization «Chiocciola the house of the nomad» for the good work done with this project; our young people learned a lot and had nice days.
