„Nature & Ideology“ YouthXChange I

26. Aug 22-1. Sep 22

Would you like to become part of „Nature & Ideology – A Youth Exchange Project Of The Invasive Kind“ in your role as a professional in international youth work? Are you interested in learning about how nature and environment protection are instrumentalised to spread right wing ideology and hatred? If on top that you like working with other young people on topics like this, you came to the right place and should quickly register for our youth exchange in August via the form below.

The event will be take place from the 26th of August to 1st of September 2022 on Corfu.

The project will last for two years. For this reason we would ask for a long term commitment, which means that you should be willing to also take part in our second youth exchange in Berlin in the second half of 2022 and our third exchange in 2023. The dates for these exchanges will be decided by all participants conjointly.

Last but not least a couple of details to the background of this project: „Nature & Ideology – a Youth Exchange Project of the Invasive Kind“ will, over the course of two years, deal with the diverse ways of framing nature and environment protection and their cooptation for ideologies of group focused enmity. At the same time the project aims to also show alternatives towards a humanistic-solidaric approach to nature protection. This will be achieved over the course of three youth exchanges in Germany, Greece and Israel besides the two professionals‘ exchanges in Germany and Isreal. The project is realised in cooperation with our friends from Agrio Rodo from Korfu. In Israel we will also be supported by our new partner Irgun Jeckes.

There will be digital preperation meetings in July and August. The dates for these will be decided jointly with the group.

Where? Corfu, Greece
Who? Youngsters & young adults (18-27 years of age)

The project is funded by the Ministery of Foreign Affairs.
