The theme of this project was creative recycling and the aim was our 43 participants to “cultivate” the perception of respect and protection towards the environment, while in the same time to develop their creativity and entrepreneurship; in this way they learned how to convert rubbish and useless objects into useful and beautiful creations. The exchange last seven days (1-8.12.2013) and it took place in Halkidona of Thessaloniki. In their weekly agenda was included the following activities and methods: energizers, group buildings, brainstorming sessions, workshops about jewelry and accessories, transmutation of clothes and shoes as well as workshops for creating small seasonal and decorative items.
