The program in Belgium was a unique program that made us get to know nature better, break free from the internet and the social media also to go beyond our limits and be careful of each other. I was pleased to meet people from other countries with a different way of thinking but with many common interests. Through this program I made new friends and I learn many things.I am glad for the memories I got and if I have the opportunity to go again to another program I will do it without second thoughts.
Υπάρχουν χωριά στην αγροτική νότια Γαλλία που αξίζει να επισκεφτεί κανείς. Δύο από αυτά είναι το Lahage και το Rieumes, στα οποία ζήσαμε οκτώ όμορφες μέρες, μαγειρέψαμε και καθαρίσαμε συλλογικά, γνωρίσαμε θεωρητικά και πρακτικά τις νέες δυνατότητες που ανοίγονται μέσω των green jobs. Κι αυτό μέσα από συζητήσεις, επισκέψεις σε βιολογικές καλλιέργειες προϊόντων, εργαστήρια ξυλουργικής, οικολογικών κατασκευών, παρασκευής χειροποίητων σαπουνιών και ... λασποπολέμου!
I participated on the second phase of the project 'Shake the box', that it tooked place in Berlin, Germany from 10 to 18 of August. On this project we were 29 participants from over 10 countries arround Europe. In the first days we played some games to get to know better each other and we broke the ice between us. Furthermore we started to discuss about the plans of the project and then we started to apply the activities.
Youth unemployment is a widespread problem, tackled by different countries in the context of different types of economies. In 2009, at the beginning of the crisis overall labour force participation in Greece was 66 per cent, which was already lower than the EU27 average of 73 per cent. The crisis started to hit Greece harder during the period 2010–2011 and the labour force participation decreased even further due to the structural changes and austerity measures which produced effects that the socio-economic system could not easily support and react to.
