Youthpass and Brainstorming

Goedemiddag allemaal!

After seven months at de Hoge Rielen, it’s time to begin thinking about the goals I achived in this project and the last things I still want to do at the organisation. A kind of feedback about everything I learned during this period, which will be written on an officially recognized certificate called youthpass. It is an Europe-wide instrument to confirm participation and to validate learning experience gained in projects of the ‘Youth in Action’ programme.
It is aimed at fostering the recognition of the non-formal learning outcomes gained in the projects.

So it’s time to sit down with a pen and paper to brainstorm. It’s the perfect time for it because it’s already
getting cold outside and it’s nice to spend some time doing indoor activities at N&A. I’m also still thinking about the new Avonturenparcours, exchanging ideas with the N&A team and It’s interesting to follow the progress of this project step by step. This parcours is going to be a real climbing adventure for all visitors coming next year.




Vlaanderen Evenementenland!


Doing an EVS project at de Hoge Rielen is obviously not only staying in the domein and in summer there is so much to do in Flemish cities. Right now there is a big event in Gent, one of the most beautiful cities of this region: Gentse Feesten. The atmosphere there is really nice: you can find a stage in every corner of the city with different music styles and you can meet people from all over Europe there.

Not long ago, I went to Leuven (also a very nice city) to meet two friends and we went to a multicultural festival, where I tasted food from different countries and listened to music from all over the world.

There are so many events and festivals and not only cities offer that. De Kempen is also a cozy place to do things. Last weekend was the Sjock festival: three days of Rock & Roll. And this place is really near from de Hoge Rielen; you can even go by bike.

Here are some pictures of my friends and me having a good time in België :20150718_192430
