Study Visit

21 October - 1 November 2017 | Phnom Penh, Kampot, Siem Reap, CAMBODIA

The Study Visit is a test of a new format of international mobility - the VolunTour - organized by youth NGOs, which mix responsible tourism, volunteering and meeting with stakeholders on the theme of environment and education issues.
THE PROJECT This Study Visit is the outcome of the “VolunTour” project, part of Erasmus+ Capacity Building in the Field of Youth. The general aim of the Capacity Building is to develop a new format of international mobility, called VolunTours, fully organized and implemented by youth organisations, whose purpose is to offer a quality learning experience and to inspire active participation and advocacy in the local communities. These VolunTours can be defined as a mixture of responsible tourism, volunteering, interaction with local communities and with stakeholders, according to a different topic for each Asian country involved. Asian and European youth organizations are working together to organize the VolunTours in India, Nepal and Cambodia. PARTICIPANTS INVOLVEMENT IN THE STUDY VISIT The aim of the Study Visit is to evaluate together the mobility realized and to understand if a similar project can be realized in different contexts. The Study Visit is addressed to youth workers and managers of NGOs interested in implementing similar activities and replicate the NFL methodologies in other communities. Participants will have the chance to take part in the pilot project, to see how the international mobility is organized, scheduled and to share good practices with managers of the Asian and European organizations involved in the project.
