Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for a Youth Exchange called Ditching the Wifi for the Wildlife” which will take place in 25th August until 03rd September 2013 in Jezersko, Slovenia.

The main goals of the project are: gain experience of life in nature, getting to know traditional, sustainable ways of living with nature, getting familiar with the basics of mountaineering, broaden awareness of the present state in the field of actively spending free time in nature, causes for that state and discuss possible solutions for improvement, share experiences, share ideas of European Union and broaden results of the project in local areas.
