January 2015, Poland
Project number: 2014-3-PL01-KA105-013248
"Survival in the city" is a project for young people aged 18 - 25 years old, whose aim was exploring the local environment, learning skills challenging boundaries and team building. The project consisted of different outdoor activities and during the exchange young people had the opportunity to experience in different activities, such as survival in the forest, building shelters, survival techniques, using natural resources and tools to survive, ecology workshops.
The project took place in Stargard Szczecinski, north-western part of Poland, from 25th January to 1st February 2015, under the leadership of ZWK OHP (Zachodniopomorska Wojewódzka Komenda Ochotniczych Hufców Pracy w Szczecinie).
CUS Padova proposed to contribute to the project with its expertise in the field of outdoor activities and in particular in the practice of orienteering. Over the years, CUS Padova has organised lots of trainings and several events for youth in the field of orienteering. Through orienteering, young people can develop their physical and motor skills, as well as their intellectual abilities; they discover nature and learn to respect it and most of all they discover new things about themselves and what they can do.
CUS Padova sent to Poland a group of eight youngsters accompanied by two team leaders with a good knowledge of orienteering techniques to share their experience with the other European partners during the exchange.

August 2015, Turkey
Project number: 2014-3-TR01-KA105-014257
The youth exchange “Respect to the environment, respect for human” consisted of 10 days of seminars, workshops, intercultural nights and visits. The main theme of the project was environment and how to maintain the balance of the common sharing of the world to leave a legacy to future generations.
The project aimed to promote environmental awareness and respect for nature for the good of the planet, humanity and future generations among young people. Through non- formal education activities, participants from six European countries were encouraged to reflect and discuss on these themes, so that despite the significant cultural differences, all participants could identify with their European peers because of common values.
CUS Padova selected eight young people aged 18 – 25 years old and one group leader to represent Italy in this project based in Ulukisla, under the leadership of the Ulukisla sub – Governorship, from 5th to 15th August 2015, to meet their peers coming from Turkey, Bulgaria, Romania, Lithuania and Estonia.
