EKO is happy to announce that one more amazing youth exchange has been successfully completed. The project “Active Youth in Digital Era” united 48 young participants from Cyprus, Bulgaria, Greece, Spain, Italy and Lithuania. It was organized by the Cypriot organization Youth Dynamics and took place in Larnaka (Cyprus) from 01 to 09 of December 2023.
Aims & Objectives of the project
The project aimed to engage in learning and socializing activities without technology as much as they could, in order to address tech addiction, increase awareness, and promote responsible tech use. As the first E-Generation, youth today spend much time indoors, affecting their active lifestyles. This project
encouraged outdoor exploration to counterbalance excessive tech use and promoted healthy living. Knowledge, resources and opportunities about Erasmus+ were learnt by participants as well.
More specifically the objectives were:
Emphasize the importance of outdoor activities and games as tools to combat internet addiction

Through this project, participants had the opportunity to get better in some key competencies such as multilingual competence, personal, social and learning to learn competence. During the week, they worked with a non-formal methodology, they worked in groups, had creative workshops, presentations with paper and markers. In summary, all team members developed different skills and competencies while acquiring new knowledge.
