YA Switzerland 2010

Potatoes rule Europe!

It may come a bit out of nowhere, since in Bulgaria we are only discussing the cooperation between different religions,  but there is one remain of the Swiss academy that must also be mentioned here. Before coming to the... (more)

Grazia Scuol… Your celebrities :-)

We all had a great time in Scuol and the other villages of the Lower  Engadine, like Ftan, Lavin, Vná, Tschlin and all the others. All the people were very open, friendly and hospitable. So we want to give Scuol a memory... (more)

Day 7: Until next time, Eustorians!

Since we didn’t really go to bed the previous night, it’s hard to draw a line between where the academy ended and this new day began. Probably somewhere between cleaning the mess on the ground floor and takin... (more)

Day 6: A day to savour

We spent our last day working in Bad Scuol. In the morning, we were separated into four groups and had to roleplay a debate between various organisations on whether or not McDonalds is allowed to branch out in the Engadi... (more)

Day 5: There will be cheese…

That day was promised to be the “food processing” day, so we expected lots of possibilities to have something to eat. In the morning we went to a cookery course in another town, where we had the opportunity t... (more)

Day 4: Another day of the Amazing Race*

The day started off with another tasty Swiss breakfast after which we returned to our workstation in Bad Scoul. There we got to taste the mineralwaters Scoul is famous for. Some of the waters, like the sulfur water Luciu... (more)

Day 3, part four: Let the history flow or how books came out from the fridge

All the other groups went to certain places, obviously connected in some way to agriculture, but the archive group, what should it expect? You can read some of their expectations and can also watch the documentary they p... (more)

Day 3, part three: Here you can see how the sausages live

Mare, Sofia, Slavomira and Flavio knew that they were in the Swiss mountains but it took them only a bus ride to the Scottish Highlands: “Our group of four visited the small village of Tschlin which is located fart... (more)

Day 3, part two: Vná, somewhere in the mountains…

If they thought that Ftan was small, Vná definitely topped that off: 60 inhabitans and more cows than people. But let us read what Dorotea, Lory, Ilmars, Martyna and Rebecca told us about their visit: “Our group vi... (more)

Day 3, part one: A miller’s tale

This day started really early with a bus trip to Ftán, a village high up in the mountains. We all visited two farms there, both doing ecological farming, and we got the chance of tasting bread and cheese. Afterwards we s... (more)

There are mountains at the end of the tunnel…

The evening before, we were told that they start serving breakfast at 6.30 and that we have to get going at 8.15. Jane:”So I set my alarm to 6.30 just to have a shower before everyone else does. It turned out I was... (more)

Welcome to Switzerland

After an exhausting trip- except for Germán from Spain, who could travel business class due to overbooking-  all participants have arrived in Zurich, together with all their luggage! Tomorrow we will all leave Zurich and... (more)

Here we go again! Announcing our Youth Academy in Scuol, Switzerland

It has been some time since our academy in Berlin, at the wanseeForum, where we discussed about repression and its mechanisms in totalitarian systems. Our blog won’t stop with that academy, but go on and cover our ... (more)
