today I´m two month in Vukovar and it is my last day here. Maybe you ask yourself now: "VukoWHAT? Why? And what did Robin do there?" Here are the answers to the questions you have: Vukovar is a small town in Croatia. It is right at the river Danube and the border to Serbia. I could tell you now about the tragic history, that it got totally destroyed during the Balkan wars. But I won´t.
From 20th to 30th of September, we organize a youth exchange ‘Art Tolerant” in YPGD with 35 participants from 7 different countries (Spain, Portugal, Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Poland and Croatia). Youth exchange allows groups of young people to meet, live together and work on shared projects for short period. This is the opportunity for these youth to learn about another culture and share their own in positive and fun atmosphere through non formal activities.
Hi everyone, my name is Sarah, I’m a volunteer from France and I stay in Vukovar for six month, until September for an EVS. Now, it’s not the time to explain what is EVS, but in one way, you’ll see what kind activity we can do.
My name is Fiona, I am from Bremen, Germany and for now I am living in Vukovar, Croatia. We are 6 EVS volunteers and live all together in “plava kuca” and we are working in a youth organization called YPGD.
Before starting my EVS project I was aware that I would have the chance to meet people from different generations, and I was very excited about the idea. However, I never thought I would learn and gain so much from that experience in such a short period of time.
