‼️ From August 27 to September 4, five young Sardinians, including 4 from Fonni and Sant’Andrea Frius, participated in the youth exchange “Colours Of Our Lives” in Hrádek, the Czech Republic 🇨🇿
Here’s what the participants tell us:
Martina (Sant’Andrea Frius): “I participated for my first time in a youth exchange in the Czech Republic, which lasted seven days. During this week, there were 24 young people from 6 different European countries, plus the group leaders. We, Sardinian participants, represented Italy, and then there were as well people from Spain, the Czech Republic, Latvia, Croatia, and Romania. During this week in Hrádek, we had group activities, discussions, workshops, role-playing, and more. The project’s name was “Colours Of Our Lives,” and the central theme was youth diversity, which was treated in its main facets. We did group activities interacting with each other in English, and we found out what customs we have in common and what we don’t with other countries, what holidays are celebrated, what traditions, and what dances. I particularly enjoyed the multicultural evenings, where each county brought typical foods or drinks from their country, and we tasted new foods.
I am delighted with this experience and look forward to another one to enrich my cultural background. I think these experiences make you grow and open your eyes to other realities because every country shows many differences, even if it is next door.”
Michele (Fonni): “My experience in the Czech Republic was excellent, it allowed me to get to know completely different people from those I knew, and I had a great time. I recommend everyone to have this kind of experience.”
Raffaela (Sant’Andrea Frius): “The cultural exchange in the Czech Republic was extraordinary. I had the opportunity to confront myself with cultures and customs different from my own, but above all, I will carry a lot of people in my heart.”
Aurora (Sant’Andrea Frius): “I have taken several trips, but none had the characteristic such as this one. I have got into contact with new cultures, new ways of thinking, different customs, and so much more. I have opened my horizons, had the opportunity to improve my language skills, and especially had a lot of fun. I recommend this kind of experience to everyone to become even more “citizens of the world.”
Martina (Oliena): “It was a unique experience. I discovered new traditions and customs and learned what unites and differentiates us from people from other nations. I confronted new realities different from what I was used to. I had fun despite having difficulties with the language, which I managed to improve. I made new acquaintances that I will always carry in my heart.”
