Books are my friends
The project was held between 01.04.2011 – 09.04.2011, in Bolu, Turkey.
The coordinator and host institution BOLU VALILIGI, proposed the theme, public reading, in order to send an example to the young people and the public and to rise the interest in lecture, because, from the statistics, show that in Turkey, over 70% from the intereviewed people, do not read even one book a year. 25 young people and their leaders, from 5 different coutries, participated, by taking part in non-formal education and working together regarding the interest of young people and reading, but also other themes as well.
Everyday were scheduled activities meant to weld the team, to accomplish an intercultural exchange and bonding new friendship and even building the foundation for new projects regarding the youth exchange.
Each country presented a statistical reading among young people, participating organizations were presented and each specific activity, like regions or country of origin.
