The expedition will last from 2 till 7 October 2016 in the beautiful environment of the Triglav National Park in Slovenia.

The organizing team is committed to build sustaining partnerships with youth organisations in the EURO-ARAB regions and to support organisations and young people from that regions to be involved in the youth programme - meet each other, share knowledge and ideas, and build partnerships with a view to future cooperation.

This will be a walking expedition therefore the group will not be based just on one place. Participants will first meet in capital Ljubljana (Slovenia), where they will be accommodated in a hostel. The transfer to the mountain region will be arranged, where the group will start the trekking expedition. Each day the group will be based in a (mountain) cottage of the Triglav National Park.

The project is organized by UN Association of Slovenia and funded by the Slovenian National Commission for UNESCO.
