Don’t look away – Let’s take a first step …!


After the past years ’21 in Slovenia and ’22 in Málaga-Ceuta, for 2023 the Baui-group from Hamburg have invited to celebrate this year’s Youth exchange in Germany, under the proposed working theme:

“Don’t look away – Let’s take a first step …!”

This International Youth Exchange (IYE) will give an opportunity for 60 young people from Spain, Slovakia, Portugal, Slovenia, Germany, Hungary, Romania and the UK to meet, learn, share,  work and play together, staying  in two different, both beautiful places: one week in a rural tranquil setting in the Jugend- und Bildungshaus in Tettenborn and the second week in the famous Youth Hostel am Stintfang, with a panorama view over the Elbe and port of Hamburg – in walking distance from the Baui St.Pauli.

The participating groups. all partners in the e.p.a.-network come from

Lisboa: eco-estilistas, Budapest: H52, Timisoara: Asociatia Filotimo, Maribor-Ljubljana: Filantropija, Málaga-Ceuta: almatahiar, Liverpool: up4change.

The hosting group is from the ‘Baui’ – which will celebrate their 40th anniversary this year, – Adventure playground and Community Centre am Brunnenhof, under the motto: ‘Der Baui ist für alle da!”.

This is the first e.p.a. International Youth Exchange, which will be supported by EU Erasmus+ Youth programme under the financial framework: “Accreditation”. So the APV meeting from 15-18 June will be a great opportunity to prepare the Youth exchange together, explore the proposed theme, collect the proposals from all participants, co-create the programme of activities, which will be uploaded by end of June.
