“East or West – Outdoors is the Best” is a youth exchange project encouraging healthy behaviour through promotion of sports and outdoor activities as a way to reach a healthy lifestyle.

Based on long standing scouting experience, Eurodesk UK has designed a unique programme of outdoor experiential learning that enables and increases personal, social and environmental interactions, exchange of experiences and understanding among people of various backgrounds, nationalities or beliefs, beyond cultural and traditional barriers. This programme also promotes cultural diversity by involving European and non-European participants.

By promoting healthy lifestyle, this youth exchange programme aims to achieve the following through sports and outdoor activities:

  • To uncover the main principles of outdoor education and to use the experience as a learning tool with the main focus on outdoor activities
  • Through personal experience to increase motivation and involvement of youth in organising activities in the nature
  • Promote healthy life style and sport activities
  • To experience camping and living outdoors
  • To increase multicultural competences among participants
