Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for a Youth Exchange named “Rural areas for You(th), You(th) for rural areas” which will take place from 23rd until 31st March 2017in High Tatras, Slovakia.

Are you interested in photography, nature and development of rural areas? We invite you for a youth exchange where you can improve you skills in photography but also help to promote and develop tourism and business in rural areas.

Slovak villages are beautiful but running off people, therefore we also want you to share experience from your countries and we can all together find new ways how to change that situation. And maybe you face the similar situation in your countries, so we can look on that problem more globally and try so search for solutions in all participants’ countries.

There will be various activities during the youth exchange: getting-know each other’s activities, teambuilding activities, energizers, intercultural evenings. The main program will be divided into two parts: development of rural areas through promotion and tourism – workshop how to work with camera and take good pictures, how to edit them, how to use graphic design software (of course basics of it), field trip where we will visit various villages in Slovakia and collect materials there (pictures, videos) which will be later used in preparation of promotional materials. The second part of the youth exchange will be focused on development of rural areas through business. We will have discussion with entrepreneur from rural area in Slovakia, also some skype calls with some others, we will discuss what are challenges to do business there, how to overcome them. The project aims also to familiarize participants with other projects, programs and possibilities that they can use in the future, such as Erasmus+, Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs, European Voluntary Service, possibilities to apply for grant as „new entrepreneur“, etc.
