Neomenioi (GR)

Our group name NEOMENIOI derives from the Greek words neo- (=new) and men-(=moon, month) which used to be a qualifier to Apollo quoted in Homer's Odyssey... so, in a way, it can freely be translated as the children of the new moon. Αpollo, though a solar deity, he influenced the phases of the moon and the movement of the months. NASA named its lunar explorations after Apollo, too. "One great leap for mankind", Neil Armstrong said. In our group we believe that for youth only the moon is the limit. Apollo was also a patron of young people and as such he was offered their first hair.
Our logo suggests that the vigorous leap of a young person forms a full moon over a slice of a young moon and at the same time forming a globe.
We are interested in:
a) youth exchange programmes so that young group members can explore and exploit non-formal learning, benefit from and contribute in intercultural contexts, get involved in co-operative activities, expand their perspectives and become better citizens of the world.
b) training courses around Europe to explore, acquaint ourselves with and consolidate NFE principles and practices.
