Our main goal is to in cooperate with other similar organizations all around EU, Scandinavian countries and neighboring countries, in order to together gain and share experiences for further development. Youth exchanges and training courses form a big part of our identity, since we know from first hand experience how important it is to broaden young people's horizon and encourage them to understand the very different world around them. In our activities, we often focus on bringing non-formal education to youth in rural areas, encourage entrepreneurship, ecological lifestyle and environmental protection among them and promote tolerance and understanding towards new and sometimes foreign ways and ideas. As an organization active in a rural area, we fight against social exclusion among local youth. To promote community integration through leisure and recreational activities, we engage local people in many low-cost activities that are fun, relaxing, and may provide opportunities to meet new people. Such activities include practicing yoga, organizing theater plays, a book group, different training courses, biking, playing sports or a musical instrument, painting, going on nature walks, etc. We have many successful projects all over Europe behind us that have given us the experience and knowledge that we now want to share with others. We are creative, brave, wanting to learn and willing to teach, and all the time searching innovative methods and tools.
