About the Project
Time left to apply
This project wants to give a responce to the need for human connection among youngsters and let them discover the value of offline, real-life encounters. We try to achieve this goal by creating a safe environment where experiential learning, the strengthening of social skills and personal growth will be the main focus.
We literally go “off the grid” with a group of European Youngster. For a week we let go of everything that keeps us busy and makes us traceable these days. The focus will be of making connection in real-life, the offline world. We look for the casual and unaffectedly interaction and encounter with new people from other countries. Without prejudice, social media… we do activities (e.g. offline gaming, artistic expressions, quests…) together and get to know each other better.
