Dear friends,

We are happy to announce that the selection of participants for the GENERATION Y, Between Dystopia and Utopia youth exchange has just started. Break The Couch is the Greek partner of the training.

GENERATION Y, Between Dystopia and Utopia is a Media Youth Exchange program developed and organized by the Small House Productions.

It is happening between 1st-12th of February 2014 (excluding traveling days) in Ommen, the Netherlands, in the group-accommodation buildings of Olde Vechte Foundation and it is funded by Youth in Action.


For the GENERATION Y, Between Dystopia and Utopia Youth Exchange we are looking for 5 young people from Greece (18-30yo) that will travel to the Netherlands and during this 12 working days they will have the chance to work in an intercultural environment on how to work by media and be an example. This is a youth exchange about you, us and media. It will involve storytelling and it will bring in front the power of example. We believe everyone has a story to tell – and now more than ever young people should stand as an example for past and future generations. From personal stories to the story of a generation.

We invite youngsters from Greece that they are motivated to make a difference in their community or their surroundings through media and the power of example. If you are interested in working with video, photography, storytelling and exploring cultural diversity then this exchange is most probably for you.

Olde VechteIn the project, the 5 Greek young people will meet and work with youngsters from the Netherlands, Croatia, France, Lithuania, Romania, Latvia and Turkey.
