Are you feeling overwhelmed by the constant presence of technology in your life? Do you sense its negative impact on your well-being and crave a connection to alternative forms of pastime? Join us in exploring these challenges and discovering healthier relationships with digital tools.

Our youth exchange recognizes the vital role technology plays in our lives and aims to foster mindful usage. Through sharing experiences and perspectives, we'll delve into the effects of excessive smartphone usage and social media engagement.

In this project, we'll explore creative and outdoor activities as alternatives to digital dependence. Participants will embark on personal challenges to strike a balance between digital usage and other forms of recreation. Our supportive group environment and outdoor setting will facilitate this journey towards holistic well-being.

The budget available depends on the country you are travelling from. Consult the infopack for more info.
