Discover it yourself

Discover it yourself project aims to introduce participants to the culture and history of Europe and the opportunities offered by European programmes. The youth will travel to jointly designated points. During the trip, young people will carry out interesting social initiatives undertaken in different countries. Such journey will bring young people greater openness to society and initiatives undertaken there. The project focuses on learning through experience gained while traveling.
