nyh koolitus youth exchange Montella Italy

Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for a Youth Exchange called “HIKE – Hike to include, knit and empower” which will take place from the 19th until the 30th of August 2024 in Montella (Naples), Italy.

About the project:

The pandemic and emerging conflicts across Europe have fueled the rise of populist and far-right movements. In response, “APG” and its partners are launching “HIKE, Hike to Include, Knit, and Empower,” a youth exchange initiative grounded in the principles of social inclusion.

This program will employ various social tools to cultivate new ambassadors of inclusion, with hiking and outdoor life as a central focus. Hiking and outdoor context are chosen for several reasons: it enhances communication by allowing participants from diverse cultural backgrounds to connect; it fosters strong bonds, which is especially beneficial for individuals who struggle with social integration; and offers a cooperative experience. Participating in group outdoor activities not only showcases each individual’s traits and skills but also builds potential future EU leaders’ ability to work effectively within a team. Furthermore, hiking is both engaging and enjoyable. Building a team should be a fun and memorable experience, creating lasting moments that unite participants.


Objectives of the project:

  • Achieving personal development that prompts reflection on our own behaviors and the behaviors of others;
  • Challenging our perceptions of societal structures that hinder social inclusion and tolerance;
  • Overcoming stereotypes related to different religions, cultures, and sexual orientations;
  • Raising awareness about discrimination and its impacts;
  • Expanding knowledge of inclusive practices and fostering intercultural and interreligious dialogue;
  • Enhancing empathy towards others.


Only team leader must participate in the Advance Planning Visit (APV) from 2nd to 5th of August in Vesuvio, (Naples), Italy.

The Erasmus + Programme will cover 100% of the accommodation, food and activities and will reimburse 100% of the travel costs for the participants – up to 360 EUR.
