Mindful Steps: an expedition through the Winter Way - Youth Exchange in 2024


This Erasmus+ project takes place in spring 2024 in El Bierzo and Valdeorras, where we bring together participants from four countries to walk and discover together the Winter Way, the route of the Camino de Santiago that crosses our region, a route in which we will address the issues of mental health, the benefits of the pilgrimage and the relationship of young people with nature.
