Youth Exchange in Zaragosa

Greenhouse Malta organised an exchange together with their partners in August in a small rural village of Cerveruela near Zaragoza. Mr. Jorge Spiteri, admin at MaYA Foundation has participated at this exchange and shared with us his interesting experience.

The concept behind this event was to reconnecting young people to nature through rural living. The urban lifestyle poses a reality on many of us and contrasts rural living in many ways. For this reason, participants explored the positive and negative aspects of the rural lifestyle and networked with other participants about opportunities in their respective countries. 

Discussions aimed at helping youth to develop their potential in rural areas, reawaken traditional art and practices whole reflecting on benefits to society and the environment.
