Festival in Perloja- YOUTH FOR YOUTH

The IOUTH youth exchange in Perloja wrapped up with a fantastic festival on May 27th! The day started with a vibrant cultural presentation, where teenagers from Georgia, Hungary, Armenia, Spain, Latvia, and Lithuania all danced,showcasing their unique cultures.

This was just the beginning of the fun! The festival offered four exciting workshops. Here, teenagers shared what they learned about each other’s cultures and the experiences they had during the IOUTH program. The festival also featured information about the Erasmus+ program, which makes these kinds of international exchanges possible.

It was a day filled with learning, celebrating different cultures, and making new friends – a perfect way to end the IOUTH youth exchange!

More about the IOUTH

In Lithuania’s Perloja, teenagers from six countries – Georgia, Hungary, Armenia, Spain, Latvia, and Lithuania – joined hands for the fun and interactive IOUTH youth exchange. Games, discussions, and workshops helped them learn about themselves, technology, and each other’s cultures. Every night, a different country shared their traditions, stories, and even dances! The big finish was the Perloja Festival, a celebration where the teenagers showed off their project and all their cultures to the local community. IOUTH wasn’t just a project; it was a blast that left teenagers with new friends, new skills, and a bigger view of the world.
