About bottles2boats

People and Organizations behind the project

K.A.NE., Social Youth Development, is a non-profit organization founded with the aim to develop both locally and internationally. K.A.NE.’s target group are the young people aged 18-35 and people involved in the youth field. The vision is to foster youth motivation in order to take initiatives and become more active citizens. K.A.NE.’s mission is to create structures for the youth and to provide educational and training opportunities for the target group.

One of the organisation’s activities focus on the implementation of European programs for educational, cultural and environmental activities for youth and adults. Through its activities, the organization has established stable and successful partnerships with organizations and public bodies both locally and internationally.

R.A.D.I.Kal.A’s (Recycling Awareness Design Innovation Kalamata Association) core idea is to raise awareness about environment and health through involving citizens in waste recycling combined with physical activity. The members of R.A.D.I.Kal.A believe that raising awareness about health and environment among school children is the most efficient on the long-term. For this purpose, a pedagogical approach was adapted in order to be applied to the projects.

Following the common grounds of both organisations, the bottles2boats project was born as an Erasmus + short term group EVS project that aims to involve European youth and the participating organisations in order to act as multipliers in local societies but also in their wider pan-European or international network of the importance and impact that mobility programs and participation in nonformal learning processes can have as well as the need for protection and respect for our natural environment, the search for creative and innovative ways to protect it, and the need for a more active and healthy lifestyle.
