Open Call for "SustainMobility Adventure" in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Project Description:

The youth exchange is intended for young people who wish to explore the field of sustainable mobility and tourism. The main idea of the youth exchange is to equip individuals with skills and knowledge on how to travel more responsibly and sustainably and how to respectfully interact when in contact with different cultures.

The first “Starting the adventure” exchange will take place in Slovenia and will address key issues on tourism, sustainable tourism and the concept of sustainable development. By participating, the participants will get to know Slovenian culture, tourism tendencies that are specific to the Slovenian environment and evaluate the practice of tourism through field work. With the knowledge gained in this activity, they will be able to think critically about tourism and begin to form an attitude towards sustainable tourism. The aim of this activity is to prepare guidelines for preparation for the trip, which will be tested in the time before the second activity.

The second part of the exchange “Becoming professional responsible traveler” will take place in Turkey. Participants will address the cultural aspect of travel and the program will equip individuals to develop a more responsible and respectful attitude towards other cultures. By entering a different cultural environment, they will evaluate their behavior, views and, on the other hand, learn about the contents of interculturality. At the same time, they will explore the environmental consequences of mass tourism and look for ways to minimize environmental impact on their travels. With the acquired knowledge, they will, through evaluation and various methods, create a Tool kit for young people with useful tips on how to travel sustainably and responsibly.
