During the autumn break it is time for 24 young people and six youth leaders to travel from Sweden to Stara Zagora in Bulgaria. The youth come from 7 different member municipalities in KEKS; Falkenberg, Mark, Stenungsund, Kungälv and Gothenburg City- East, Frölunda and Angered. The Swedish young people will meet with Bulgarian youths during one week and learn more about democracy and influence. The Swedish youth will present different democratic forums and as well the project MBU -Man behind the uniform.
The cooperation started in autumn 2015 when 30 young people from Start Zagora International youth center came to Gothenburg, Sweden to visit and look at youth activities within KEKS. The officials from Stara Zagora then invited a group of young people from KEKS to visit them in the fall. The International youth center in Sara Zagora works with inclusion of marginalized roma youth and empowerment and are also one of three Council of Europe youth centers in Europe.
InterCity youth wants to help members in the network to find partners for international youth projects. If you are interested- post your partner search.
