How to Understand Others and Yourself

30 September 2023

The Youth Exchange School programme (YES), is an inclusive and enriching learning short-mobility experience for students, equipping them with valuable skills, knowledge, and intercultural competencies while promoting the EU’s priority areas and fostering a sense of European identity and cooperation.

Coordinated by the Häme University of Applied Sciences (HAMK), this edition is called ‘How to Understand Others and Yourself’.

In this YES students will gain valuable knowledge about how to understand others, but most of all how to understand themselves.

During this week, attendees will have interactive workshops, insightful lectures and mini-challenges, and might even experience some Eureka moments, gaining more confidence in who they are and how they experience things.
