About Work Camp Exchange

Work Camp Exchange is an activity under the platform of World Exchange 2. The World Exchange 2 is the second edition of World Exchange. It combines the concept of Youth Exchanges using non-formal learning with work camps in order to provide experimentation and exchange good practices among partners. Additionally, the core of the project is the cooperation between European and Asian organisations and youth workers. Also to provide participants a broader point of view on the intercultural exchange. Moreover, the youngsters involved in the project will gain knowledge about how to organize and manage a youth exchange from different point of views.
