Why learn taking pictures?
Adds visual appeal:
Studies have shown that articles with images are more likely to be shared and remembered than text-only articles. Adding a photo to an environmental article can make the content more visually appealing, which can help to increase engagement.

Helps convey information:
Photos can help to simplify complex environmental concepts and make them easier to understand. A photo of a polar bear on melting ice can help to illustrate the effects of climate change more effectively than text alone.

Can evoke emotions:
Environmental photos can be powerful tools for evoking emotions and inspiring action. For example, a photo of a bird covered in oil can evoke a strong emotional response and motivate individuals to take action to protect the environment.

Provides evidence:
Photos can serve as evidence of environmental issues and help to build trust with your audience. It helps to validate the information and increase its credibility.

Here is the list with answers to the most popular questions about us and what we do

Most of the international youth exchanges are targeted at young people between the ages of 12 and 30. However, more and more opportunities for children are developed with each year. International youth exchanges are basically aimed at all adolescents and young adults. The youth exchanges organised by CHANCE International are usually targeting young people from 18 to 26 (in some cases up to 30) and funded within the Erasmus + programme.

We distinguish between participant contribution and total costs. The participant contribution is 50 Euro at max, depending on the project. During 2021 there is no participation fee. If the contribution is too high, we will always find a way for you to participate in an encounter. Please contact us!

A youth exchange is financed by the organiser’s own funds, third-party funds and the participant’s contribution. Third-party funds are provided by the Federal Government from the Child and Youth Plan and European funds from the Erasmus+ youth programme. Third-party funds are applied for by the organiser or sponsor.

To participate in our projects, you should be interested in the project topic, cultural exchange and cooperation with other participants. We do not require any foreign language or other specific skills and qualifications. 

We expect our participants: 
– to be involved in all project phases;
– to co-design the project, it’s activities and results.
We welcome sharing of  knowledge and skills of participants with each other.
