This training course is organized by Culture Goes Europe (Germany) in cooperation with Nectarus (Lithuania) and is the second part of the “Expedition – Adapting Environment to Create Experiential Learning Programs in European Youth Work” project. The first part of the project was a training course which focus was on rural environment. This second activity focuses on how to make use of urban environment for adventure learning programmes that involve the use of digital technologies. Such programmes create opportunities to develop exploration skills and motivate young people to connect to their surrounding environment and be physically active.
