This was a 1.1 youth exchange what took place between 21 and 28 November, in Baile Tusnad.

The youth exchange was supported by the Youth in Action Program of the European Commission.

At the program participated four countries with 32 participants together from: Greece, Turkey, Hungary, and Romania.

The main objective of the program was, that in a familiar milieu we discussed about sustainable tourism. During the program the youngsters discussed questions about this topic, for example: touristic possibilities of the participant countries, tourism and the economic situation, positive and negative effects on tourism, the role of locals and other activist groups on tourism, the negative effects of tourism on nature and the effects of the tourists on tourism, etc.

Besides these discussions and presentations the participants visited the touristic sites nearby, such as Saint Ana Lake, Mohos bog, Bastion Apor and Hawk Stone. They told their opinions and their suggestions for the touristic development of these areas.

Furthermore, the participants had the opportunity to get to know each other and each other’s culture and they had time to exchange experience.
