The project will be carried out in three phases: preparation, youth exchange and follow-up. In the first phase, young people will have a first contact with the contents of the project and prepare for the exchange. In the second phase, the protagonists will have the opportunity to be in Salamanca and, for a week, to be active citizens of this city. In the third phase, the youngsters will organise small projections in their localities, where they can continue putting into practice and consolidating the skills learned in the two previous phases. The methodologies used will be non-formal education, experience-based learning, structured dialogue, and YouthPass.olitical Efficacy).
