Young people today face some issues when it comes to accessing and connecting positively with nature. In today’s society, there are many stresses which mean it can be difficult for engagement or participation. There is a lack of knowledge also whereby a significant number of young people don’t have the capacity or way of knowing how to survive or spend their time within nature.
Therefore this youth exchange will take place in Örkelljunga, Sweden and aims to support young peoples lives in the natural and rural areas and will attempt to revive their desire to be in natural environments. It will raise young people’s awareness of nature and the important value that it holds.
