12 Nantes youngsters to explore Europe

During the summer of 2013, 12 young people traveled to Europe in order to meet some participants to former NCG Forums. In groups of three, they stayed 4-5 days in each city, with the mission to bring small audio or video reports.


Kaireddine, 19 years old, went to Sarrebrücken to meet the Augenblick Association  photomarathon ). This respresented his first independant travel experience: "We compared what was happening in France and Germany. I spoke another language, discovered another way of thinking. I feel that I got more maturity and a taste for travel". 

Clémence, 28, stayed in Szczecin, Poland, where the project " Unjam the City " promotes cycling since  7 years. " I could see how associations develop elsewhere in Europe and how they live there. "

Paul, 26, and Faize, 19, are studying foreign languages. They met members of Utopia Helsinki in Finland, where cultural events are organized to fight against discrimination (disability, sexual orientation...) "We discovered their sense of involvement, wich is a little different from ours, more punctual and less supported than in France "says Paul. Faize add: "The stereotypes I had about Scandinavian countries have changed"  and syas that she really "want to plan another trip as soon as possible".
