Building Walls - Breaking Walls


A youth exchange in three countries: intercultural encounter, cultural heritage and nature experience

"Building Walls - Breaking Walls" is a youth exchange between young people from Switzerland, Israel, Palestine and Ireland / Northern Ireland. For a week, they work together on a traditional dry stone wall. At the same time, they experience each other's culture through discussions, outdoor activities and cooking together. The project is about walls between cultures - and how we can overcome them.
