During the coldest month of the Summer of 2011, Latvian youths travelled to the historical city of Trencin (Slovakia) for the youth exchange “Responsible Youth”*. The youths from Slovakia, Latvia, Macedonia, and Serbia participated in lectures and workshops about sustainable lifestyle, both inside and outside the big city.
But they did not just sit inside classrooms: they also went outside to get their hands dirty. The youths participated in a clean-up action, went on walks in the woods, and visited a glass-recycling plant and an ecovillage and the Czech Republic.
* This youth exchange was funded by Youth in Action.
