You will be provided with basic but comfortable accommodation in Senegal during the project dates, as well as food and local transportation, at no cost for you. The local activities will also be organised at no cost for you.

Travel insurance will also be covered fully with the project grant, so at no cost for you.

In adition, 100% of your international travel costs will be refunded, up to 530 EUR. For this you will have to keep all your travel documents and boarding passes and send them to us after your return. For coherence with the project topic, only one return flight is allowed (there are direct flights from Madrid to Dakar).

The only cost for you will be a participation fee of between 50 and 120€, depending on what you can afford and what you consider that this experience is worth. We will use part of this fee to compensate your flight’s carbon emissions (1.154 kg CO2) through the Naturefriends Climate Fund, and the rest to contribute to the project administration costs. If this fee is an obstacle to your participation, please let us know.

HOW TO APPLY:

We consider energy as a «raw material» in our daily life and we can obtain it from different renewable resources. However, these new technologies are still not very promoted and extended. On the other hand, there are many simple habits people can adopt to reduce energy consumption daily, protect the environment and save money. In a world full of opportunities we want to suggest to the new generations to live as sustainably as possible for a better and long lasting planet, and we consider this youth exchange among the first steps in sharing and adopting these positive practices.

Aims:

The aim of the youth exchange is to provide a space for participants to share their ideas and knowledge on the topic of energy efficiency and to raise the awareness of young people and their communities on the need of cleaner sources of energy and every day sustainable practices.

Objectives:

– To increase the knowledge of young people on renewable energy resources and energy efficiency.
– To explore and develop simple daily practices for the reduction of energy expenditure without sacrificing our comfort.
