PARK EXPLORERS PROJECT
The Park Explorers project aims to involve young people to re-discover their own communities in a successful strategy to build cohesion, increase the skills and the confidence of young people, as well as promote the local heritage.
Urban parks, in this view, are perfect places to develop activities linked to historic heritage and natural capital. In February 2020 HYPE will brought 24 young people from the United Kingdom, Portugal, Greece, and Italy together to discover Merseyside’s amazing urban parks.
The Park Explorers project is open to young people from 18 to 25 years old and it involves youth exchanges with HYPE’s partners. The youth exchange will focus on one aspect of the urban parks: their historical heritage, their environment, and their potential for community action!
