About Work Camp Exchange

Work Camp Exchange is an activity under the platform of World Exchange 2. 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 organizations and youth workers. Also to provide participants a broader point of view on intercultural exchange. Moreover, the youngsters involved in the project will gain knowledge about how to organize and manage a youth exchange from different points of view. Thus, they will have the opportunity to put it in practice by organizing a youth exchange themselves.

The Work Camp Exchange Indonesia: Conserve The River, Preserve Your Future

The work camp exchange topic in Indonesia is “Conserve The River, Preserve Your Future”. By youth exchange methodology, we will have non-formal activities to exchange knowledge regarding ecological problems, also trash management in participants’ countries.
