Our awesome estonian group which was made of girls took part of a very interesting and educational youth exchange in Italy, Montone from 24.september until 1.october 2016. The youth exchange theme/subject was the color of Religions. On this youth exchange the were young people at age of 18-30years old from Estonia, Italy, Georgia and Turkey. The travelling to the youth exchange was in two parts: Estonian team leader and one participant travelled together from Riga airport trough Turkey and spent a night in Rome staying at a very nice young estonian lady; The other 3 participants flew together from Tallinn airport and travelled together to the Venue. And the same way was with leaving the project. During the youth exchange we practiced different ways of working : did a lot of group work/teamwork , several debates happened, we introduced Estonian religious situation and we were learing about the other countries religious situations and there was of course fun activities also, there was a lot games. One of the most interesting parts of the youth exchange was the different countries cultural evenings, where we had the chance to try the national cuisine from other countries and learned so much about their traditons. Also we met with the major of Montone and a priest from one of close towns. We recommend everyone to take part of a Youth Exchange and other international projects because it will give a lot of experince, courage to speak in different languages and a lot of new acquaintences and friends from all over Europe/World.
