Spread the word!
Youth exchange, Erasmus+
Spread the word! was an international youth exchange aimed at building and developing digital competencies by building the offline and online marketing campaign about Erasmus+ opportunities spread among young people in the participant's local communities.
The youth exchange was targeted at young people from rural areas, experiencing economic obstacles and others, and took place from February 22nd to March 2rd of 2019 in Bardejov in eastern Slovakia.
During our Erasmus+project, we had several opportunities to meet the local youth community. Our participants, guests, speakers, and students of local high school discussed problematic parts in the educational system in Slovakia and what kind of opportunities EU offers to youth. We were also a part of the opening exhibition ET SI C'ÉTAIT MOI? which was organized by the current ESC volunteer, and we also spent one day at the local high school as TV stars. Participants were preparing marketing campaigns by taking pictures, interviewing local students, recording the videos.
Funding was provided by the Slovak National Agency for ERASMUS+: Youth in Action, Key Action 1, Mobility of Youth Workers, IUVENTA.
