„REFUGEE LIFE: A STORY BEHIND“ is a 8-day multicultural youth exchange taking place in Zbýšov u Brna, Czech Republic within the dates 31 October – 9 November 2016. It invites 30 young people 18-30 years old coming from 6 countries (Czech Republic, Ukraine, Romania, Greece, Hungary and Bulgaria) to meet their own values and unique situations of people who became refugees.

It is about going beyond your prejudices, overstepping comfortable playground and opening up for a totally new experience. We want to learn as a team how we can use differences for the benefit of everybody involved and how to share what we already have – our time, compassion and resources.
This exchange is addressed to people wanting to bring change to social environment they live in and to make an impact on social dialogue by becoming creative in their own actions. It is an opportunity to develop your qualities and experience self – esteem and self trust as well as respect and support for every other person around. We will use self-development methods, outdoor activities, youth involvement and joyful creativity.
