“Bike & Upcycle” Erasmus+ Youth Exchange

From 2-10 October 2022 in Bitola, N. Macedonia was held this Youth Exchange with participants from 🇭🇷Croatia, 🇩🇰 Denmark, 🇧🇬 Bulgaria and 🇲🇰 N. Macedonia.

The participants were faced with the topics of transport, environment, climate change and sustainability. They were able to get deep insights into the situations of the other countries that were partners in this exchange, which let them compare the situation with their own home country. They reflected on the similarities and differences in their urban transport realities, and they better understood the context they live in. The working methods were based on non-formal education principles. There was diverse indoor and outdoor workshops that started with introduction games, then team-building games, lectures, brainstorming activities on various related issues, study visits, movie nights and individual and group reflections. Learning by doing methodology was implemented in the outdoor settings – riding bicycles in the city, bicycles repairing, discussions and mural painting. Participants rotated in different group activities such as digital activism, bicycle repairs and artistic expression.
