Youth Exchange for the project “SustainABLE Rural Rebuilding in Europe”

Association for Progress, Education and Lobbying – PEL Skopje hosted the youth exchange “SustainABLE Rural Rebuilding in Europe” in Krushevo, North Macedonia from 15-26 September 2019.

The project is financed by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Commission.

During the YE the participants had the chance to learn more about the environmental issues, climate change, how to protect the environment and how to reuse, recycle and upcycle.

Also, they had the opportunity to hear more about the food waste and GMO, what it is, how it affects us and the environment and how to prevent it. They also learnt how to live in a more sustainable way.

As part of the YE we also had 3 day workshop on how to reuse textile during which they learn how to sew and made their own bags and other products from old clothes and textile waste.

We organized as well a cleaning action, so all the participants helped in the collecting garbage in different parts of the town.
