International youth work

International youth activities, exchanges and voluntary work are of major importance at Metsäkartano youth centre. Various international youth projects are coordinated and promoted by us. These have included several European youth exchanges, seminars, youth camps and workshops, where participants across Europe and beyond have participated. Metsäkartano is active user of EU’s Youth in Action –programme, and member of the EURODESK, PLATFORM and ENYC networks. Metsäkartano provides also international youth information services for the youth in the region. Besides European co-operation, also cross-border cooperation, Nordic cooperation and the Baltic Sea cooperation are Metsäkartano´s interests. The goal is to improve the internationalization of the Finnish youth, as well as to provide unforgettable non-formal learning experiences for the visiting international youth groups.
The purpose of all the international youth work is to promote acceptance of difference, feeling of community, cultural understanding, cultural awareness, and intercultural dialogue.
