World Life Experience

The World Life Experience kicked off on 8 January in Lisbon and will take 12 participants of different nationalities to 28 different destinations in Europe, Asia and South America.

They will use social media to share their insights and experiences in each country they visit. While their 10-day stay in each country includes some leisure activities, most of it is dedicated to interacting with the local organisation and working directly with NGOs. This is to show the world a very different approach to travel: see the world while helping those in need, and thereby driving change.

World Life Experience participants will work directly with Povod, the Slovenian partner of World Life Experience, which coordinates the team’s field programme activities in Slovenia.

Povod’s main activities are dedicated to intercultural dialogue, which it strengthens by carrying out activities in Slovenia and around the world. The Institute works for global justice and development through art, education and cooperation, and also runs global education and awareness programmes for European audiences and advocates for the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals.
Their aim is to strengthen cross-sectoral cooperation to foster the development of civil society organisations by building partnerships with the public and, in particular, by supporting young people to develop their own initiatives and set up social enterprises.

They will first spend five days in Ljubljana, Slovenia, where they will explore our culture, history and learn about good practices in social entrepreneurship. The second part of their adventure in Slovenia will take them to the Štajerska region, where they will learn about sustainable projects and social economy enterprises.
After Slovenia, the group will travel to Prague, where they will work with another association.

The participants work as a whole and share their daily lives, insights and experiences with a global audience through World Life Experience social media and website.


The project is open to the whole world, so all organisations are welcome to participate. Institutions, brands and organisations that help provide accommodation, meals, adventures, transport, experiences, funding, etc. locally are already involved in the project, with the aim of promoting everything that reflects their core business. This includes the Association EPEKA, Soc. Ent., and Top Power studio as local partners of the project in Maribor.
The aim of the project is to promote social responsibility through direct donations to global NGOs and direct cooperation with local organisations, to offer participants a unique experience and to raise awareness of global social and cultural diversity.

The Association EPEKA, Soc. Ent., is supported by:
