Place: Fahren, Germany

Aim

The aim of the project is to foster intercultural understanding and dialogue through adventure education. An important component of One World International will be a series of international youth exchanges and training projects for youth workers in the field of outdoor and experiential education.  We believe that taking participants outside their 'comfort zone' – whether this physical, emotional or cultural – enriches their personal development.
