It would be our pleasure to share with you activities and experience that would be useful for you and your organization (interactive workshops, educational games). Furthermore, through this participation in abroad activities, ‘Youth Horizons’ enables young people to develop their way of thinking and share ideas, goals, knowledge, concerns, customs and traditions, culinary delights and experiences with young people from different cultures. In other words, through this co-existence with the European and International ‘being’ young people have the opportunity to expand their spiritual and experiential horizons! Our motivation to listen to the needs of young people and create youth policies, reflects in the use of the key-word ‘Horizon’ in our organization’s name!
