The aim of this exchange is to develop awareness and critical thinking about serious problems arising from carelessness, passivity and pollution of the planet.  Awareness of the
problem is the first step towards progress. In addition to learning about the causes of pollution, discussing the current situation, policies and initiatives dealing with nature protection, the emphasis during the workshops is on solving these problems by taking small steps through an informal approach in the process, with emphasis on research, motivating and inspiring a better and greener future for all of us.

Through independent work, participants will gain additional knowledge about sustainable development, climate change, recycling, the impact of pollution on human health. The research and creative approach in the workshops shows an ability that traditionally changes into creative and open.

Duration & Profile

From 10th September until 16th September 2022 (Saturday-Friday)

6 participants in total from each partner, 5 youngsters 18 – 30 + 1 youth leader with no age limit.

Environmental protection and sustainable development are critical issues that require immediate attention and action. The effects of climate change, pollution, and deforestation are already being felt around the world, and it is essential that we work to address these issues in order to ensure a sustainable future for all. One way that individuals can contribute to environmental protection and sustainable development is through participating in Erasmus Plus youth exchanges. These exchanges provide young people with the opportunity to learn about and work on sustainable development projects in different countries, fostering a global perspective on environmental issues. Erasmus Plus youth exchanges also provide a platform for young people to share their knowledge and ideas on sustainable development, and to learn from the experiences of others. This helps to build a community of individuals who are committed to making a positive impact on the environment, and who can work together to find creative solutions to the challenges we face. Furthermore, Erasmus Plus youth exchanges also help to raise awareness on the importance of environmental protection and sustainable development among young people, and to encourage them to take an active role in working towards a more sustainable future. With the help of these exchanges, young people can gain the knowledge, skills, and inspiration they need to make a difference in their communities and beyond. In conclusion, Erasmus Plus youth exchanges are an excellent way for young people to contribute to environmental protection and sustainable development, by learning about and actively participating in projects that promote sustainable development, sharing knowledge and ideas, raising awareness and inspiring for action.

Green walk

A strong impact on the participants was the opportunity to immediately apply what they learned and leave their mark in real time through a half-day forest clearing campaign and making furniture from recycled waste that has found a new purpose in the community centre and will be used by young people. Through the activities, participants were enabled to independently design the content and take into account the outputs of each workshop, instead of just passively observing, which affected their psychological resilience that will help them cope better with stress & uncertainties out of discomfort & fear. Participants were taught to look and think interdisciplinary.


The activities that make up our daily routines, whether we are aware of them or not, affect the environment around us, the cleanliness of the air, soil and water. And learning to what extent they affect the environment and how we as individuals and society can contribute to its preservation is one of the main goals of the project.

Sustainable development is the framework according to which policies and strategies are shaped around the world with the aim of economic and social progress without harming natural resources as well as human health, and therefore the project also promotes the value of belonging to an informed, tolerant and responsible European society, EU projects and programs and creating positive social change in the community through proactive action.

The participants were encouraged to independently interpret the inputs from surroundings and create their own opinions through critical reflection and to connect different contents logically.

During the activities, great focus was placed on new skills and competences that participants acquired and developed through workshops, such as active listening and communication in a language other than their mother tongue and presentational skills in front of a larger group.

Participants quotes


The participants primarily adopted new knowledge, skills and competences on the topic of environmental protection and sustainable development as the main topics that covered soil, air and water pollution, the impact on human health, problems and sustainability of waste disposal sites, waste sorting and recycling, climate change, use of renewable energy sources, self-sustainable lifestyle, etc.

They had the opportunity to learn about important topics in an interesting and informal way, which leads to easier understanding of the topic and greater motivation for active participation, open communication and exchange of opinions.

The participants thought daily about their role as active citizens in promoting environmental protection, how to think critically and share opinions and ideas with a humorous touch but also with serious conclusions.

Youth exchange “KODAMA” in Karlovac, Croatia🇭🇷
During the process, we promoted activities for supporting the eco friendly life of living. By teaching us the principal of reduce, reuse, recycle. Cleaning the forest and the environmental issues and there effect on human health.♻️
💬Comments from the Bulgarian team about the project
The project was amazing. The energizers where interesting and useful in life. We previously had quite basic knowledge of the topic but now with certainty can say that our awareness grew more than we anticipated to. And everything was done flawlessly by non-formal way of education. Everybody knew it wasn’t mandatory to study that but we still did because of the large interest we had in this project. Everybody was humble and not too competitive in the workshops we had.
🌳Cleaning part of a forest was really shocking at first because of the broad amount of thrash people throw and don’t think about the consequences of there actions.
👥Intercultural nights
We have never expected that we could learn so many things for just an week. The opportunity that Erasmus+ project gives us to meet new people from different race, religion and believe is extrodinaire. We loved each everyone and the fact we learned from every participant something new for there country, history and tradition.
🌐This whole project was a wonderful experience and a beautiful memory that will live for a long time in our minds. Kodama project was filled with emotions and laugh. We will the Bulgarian team always when we have the opportunity to share our new learned skills, and recommend with both hands Erasmus+ youth exchange.

Trash to tresure

The participants were extremely satisfied with the time spent in the urban park making stools from recyclable materials (including car tires that were found in the cleaning operation and from the car tire dump). With this activity, they could see the results of their actions immediately on the project itself.

LARP - Climate change

An open-air media workshop where participants experienced first-hand what it’s like to be part of a story. This format of the game also encourages critical reflection on media content, as participants actively immerse themselves in a world they had passively observed until then. It takes place in real time and space, in direct interaction with other participants. No prior knowledge of acting is required, nor is it expected of the participants. The topic was the presentation of climate change and its impact on life.
