24 July, 2013
During the first week of July, Palafrugell’s Youth Space Can Genis –located in Girona, Spain-, which is managed by Suara Cooperative, has participated in the European exchange programme 'Youth in Action', which aims to encourage international cooperation and exchange between young people and to enhance the training and networking both among young people and among educators.
During these days, Palafrugell’s Youth Space hosted 10 young Belgians from the Wasenchot pedagogical center, an entity specialized in the guidance, treatment, education and shelter to young people who have ongoing difficulties in their development.
Between July 1 and 7, the young Belgians, along with 10 young Spanish from the Palafrugell’s Youth Space, performed different activities that allowed them to get close to nature as well as to discover different localities of the Costa Brava. Two professionals of the Palafrugell Youth Space, along with six supervisors from the Wasenchot pedagogical center, also took part of the exchange
The European program ‘Youth in Action’, in operation since 2007 and funded by the European Union, is aimed at young Europeans aged between 13 and 30 years. Its intention is to promote active citizenship among young people; to develop solidarity, tolerance and mutual understanding between young people from different countries, and to strengthen the capacity of civil society organizations in the youth field.
