You(th)in Action 2015: A recap
Urban Foxes' first Youth in Action training camp, for us, a moment to cherish. A week where new bonds were forged and existing ties were strengthened.
Over 30 people from all over Europe with a variety of characters, ages, skills and smiles participated. All reunited in the vibrant city of Brussels, capital of Europe, a place of wonder, opportunities and challenges.
After getting to know each other and their surroundings, a mapping of Brussels was made. Highlighting the areas that were (almost) perfect and the ones that could use a human hand. An analysis was made of the needs of these areas and an action plan was constructed. Participants were immerged in a pool of good practices, crazy ideas and inspiring lectures, to provide them with sufficient input to be able to successfully execute constructive actions of their own.
Making Brussels green, The Waste Race, Express Yourself, Speed Chatting and Bike Lane Restoration were the actions that were the culmination of a magical week full of surprises, insight and fun.
We want to thank all the participants for their energy, love and creativity. Their partner organisations for the smooth collaboration, the EU for the funding. JINT for the help, tips and facilitation, JES for providing a wonderful venue and all the guest speakers for their enlightening lectures.
