This event is fully booked. You can still register on a waiting list and maybe get a place, if someone else can not come.

This exchange is all about ‘escape the city’. So we will focus on nature and mindfulness. We go outside a lot for alle kinds of workshops (such as meditation, forest bathing and hiking) and we do a lot of teambuilding activities. You don’t want to miss this week!

The international team will include 15 young people from all around Europe. Residents of all backgrounds, from any European country, will gather together in the beautiful naturefriend house in the Netherlands for a week of exchange.

The house is situated in the middle of the forest in Bennekom. There are several bathrooms and showers inside the house, there’s a big hall and a big kitchen. This makes it a perfect spot for group activities. Together we will cook and prepare the meals. All the meals will be vegetarian. Check it out: nivon.nl/accommodaties/de-bosbeek/
