Partnership-building Activity: Make the Move for Green Inclusion II

17-22 October 2023 | Rio Maior, Portugal

PBA is organised to find good reliable partners for youth exchanges with a focus on inclusion and “green” and to understand the needs for a YE of good quality. It is important that the participants represent groups of young people they are working with.

Over the past years, many youth exchange projects have been developed and run between organisations from different countries of geographical Europe, born in the previous editions of this PBA. An exciting and challenging intercultural encounter! In order to strengthen the partnerships and especially the quality of these projects, this partnership building activity aims to provide the needed frame, support and training elements for the participants who intend to organise such a youth exchange in the near future. Besides creating the opportunity for participants to create strong partnerships, we also wish to offer a real intercultural experience, as an inspirational example for future youth exchange implementations.

This Partnership Building Activity (PBA) “MAKE THE MOVE for Green Inclusion II” will therefore take place for the 7th time in the very centre of Portugal. We will try to create a strong interaction with the local community, which adds a dimension of deep intercultural experience for the participants. The priority topics will be the environment and sustainable development and inclusion, and the possible links and conciliation between these two.
