The project in a few words

Treeconnect is a two-mobilities Youth Exchange organised by Madrid Outdoor Education from Spain, and Dreaming OPEnly from Germany.
The project aims to establish a long-term learning process that will transform ourselves, our organisations and our communities. It is intended to be a clear example of how young people can transform their reality and the importance of fostering optimism to dream of a better future. In addition, this project aims to become an example of how to make that future a reality by sharing and shaping the tools to transform our lives and our communities.
It is important to mention that this is a Youth Exchange project, and is NOT going to be developed as a therapy project, but rather as an experience to talk about and generate awareness on mental health and related topics among peers and with the use of Art and Outdoor education.

Different Steps of the Project

As explained, Treeconnect is a long-term process that aims to have a tangible and consistent impact on the people, communities, and organisations involved. To best achieve this goal we designed a specific educational path composed of different steps. To guarantee that Treeconnect reach its full potential, it’s extremely important to be able to participate in all of them!
