RISE network in Estonia


RISE – Romania, Island, Sweden, Estonia
24 - 28 August 2015 in Pärnu, Estonia


During this third meeting of the RISE project we have created the structure for the documentation system of youth workers and we will very soon build the first test version of the online platform. It is expected to be done at the end of the year and there will be a test phase during the first half of 2016. During the test phase youth organizations from the network countries will test the system and give feedback on it.

The objective of the project is to create a web based documentation system specifically designed for youth work. This will be a tool to develop and analyse your work, to promote reflective practice and extract instant statistics.

While working in this project we find that the circumstances for youth workers vary in different countries, but we have a very clear common goal. More information about the project here.
The International Youth Day is celebrated annually on 12th of August. This year's theme is "youth civic engagement." Every year, International Youth Day focuses on a question of legal, cultural, economic or social which the young people are facing and marks the importance of youth as part of a change of our society. International Youth Day was designated by the United Nations through a resolution adopted in 1999.

Guided Cycling Tour - Turda Gorge & Salina TurdaWe start out our cycling day from the western side of Cluj and for the first 10 km we are following beautiful forest-roads where beech-woods and pine-groves vary each other. Passing the forests and getting to a pasture, we are welcomed by a nice panorama and an enjoyable downhill.
We are going to cycle through villages and unpaved dirt-roads, until we get to the canyon's upper entrance. We will traverse the canyon, with its walls reaching 200 m along the Hesdat River, and cross some suspension bridges.
Leaving the 3 km long Turda Gorge, we will continue cycling towards Turda, where a fantastic underground world is awaiting us, the Salina Turda, the most amazing former salt mine in Romania.
It is the coolest underground place in the world, according to Business Insider. Boating, underground ferris-wheel and other fun surprises are waiting for us.
Transfer to Cluj.
