Vice-president of the Association EPEKA, Soc. Ent., is attending youth exchange in Almere, Netherlands.

Within the Food Wave project, the Municipality of Almere and Flevo Campus, in collaboration with ACRA, are organizing the first youth international youth exchange, titled “Claim your seat at the table”.

The event will take place from the 1st to the 3rd of October 2022 and it will consist of a training day, an excursion and co-working sessions at the Village, located on the Floriade Expo in Almere, the Netherlands. Besides that, the exchange will start with a high-level event where participants will have the chance to meet with 500 other youth from different European countries.

Participants will work together on a relevant local food issue by sharing their ideas, knowledge and experiences. This youth exchange will be a great opportunity for you to learn more about what is happening all around the world in the field of food and get inspired by other food activists. On top of all of this, the project and your ideas will be showcased on the platform of Food Wave.

The objectives are:
  • Build a positive discourse on youth activism for climate, through the highlight of practical experiences which see young people under 35 at the center of change in their cities.
  • Bring out, tell, enhance and map organizations, initiatives and good practices, both local and international.
