Associazione Kora is currently looking for 4 partners to submit the youth exchange “Rediscovering Nature” by February deadline.

Participants: 6 participants aged 15-17 from each of the 5 participating countries, 2 group leaders from each of the 5 participating countries (40 persons in total)

They will share bedrooms and live in close contact with nature in a rural area, where the closest town with facilities is 20 minutes walking.
