Are you between 18 and 30 years old and interested in exchanges about activism, political participation and how youth can engage in building a more sustainable, equal society? Don’t wait any longer! Come and take part in our Youth Exchange: YES – Youth Engagement for Society” set up by the association Vir’Volt in France. The Youth Exchange is organized around how young people across Europe are or can be active to create a more sustainable future, fight for human rights and citizenship and stand up against rising far right tendencies:

– Exchanges and workshops on political participation, youth initiatives, citizenship
– Exchanges on how to take interculturality into account in societal issues, fight for more equality and sustainability 
– Sharing your experiences, ways of political participation and modes of action 
– Helping in a ecological youth project with eco-construction with wood 

And all this in a group composed of several young people from other European countries at Vir’Volt!

 You will live in a community and will have the opportunity to participate in the organization of the days that will be divided between workcamps carried out all together with the aim of acquiring ecological environmental methods and activities and animation sessions on gender equality, diversity, discrimination, eco-citizen practices, interculturality, etc. 

We will also share moments with the citizens of the city as well as information about mobility and different cross border solidarity activities that exist.

In a process of ecological practices, we will use recycled materials to do écological manual construction with wood and work in our permaculture garden.

If all these topics speak to you and you want to participate in an intercultural experience in an environmental context, then apply now!


Accommodation on the Association’s camping site (individual tents or collective yurt) with participation in collective tasks (cooking, cleaning).
