International Exchanges Group

Posted: October 28, 2010 by club global in Ungdomsutbyten / Youth Exchanges

Club Global would like to start a new group that organizes and participates in international youth exchanges!

Do you love travelling? Do you like educational meetings? Are you a youth leader or would like to be? Are you interested in participating in youth exchanges and seminars in different countries? Then you might be interested in joining a new group that will start to administrate and organise international youth exchanges! The name of the group is not yet decided, it is up to the members to decide a name!

Where? The group will start in Sweden and aim to develop into other countries, primarily within the EU, but also in countries in other continents where exchange programs such as Youth In Action or youth camps are available.

Who? You do not have to have any special skill or education to join the group, but a strong interest for international and global friendship and a sense of organising and management. You need to be 20-30 years old. The first group will start in Sweden so it is good if you live there or have connection to Sweden. The group will investigate possible collaborations with other NGO’s such as CISV, Amnesty, and NGO’s within the Youth In Action programme.

How? When we have enough interested participants in the group, the group will arrange a meeting in Sweden to get started.

Contact? If you want to join the group, or know more about it, write to: sofie13003(a) or phone: 0700993682.

Diplomas for “Cycling For Everyone” participants in Bräcke


on the open road


Our first cycling course for adults in Bräcke is over and it’s time to pack up the bikes and move on to the next course starting soon in Gothenburg.

I find it hard to believe just how quickly the last two weeks have passed and just how quickly our wonderful pupils have improved. We are moving on from Bräcke leaving behind five competent cyclists. Two weeks ago five women were wobbling around a school yard balanced precariously on shining new black bikes. Now the bikes aren’t quite so shiny but the wobbling is a thing of the past.


We were visited by a local journalist and we had a hard time explaining to him that just a few days previously these women were “non cyclists” he thought we had cheated and were only pretending to teach people who were already proficient cyclists.




Diplomas for everyone


Teaching someone to cycle is just a small part of the business. Learning to ride is the hard bit, having the determination and the courage to keep at it. To pick yourself from the ground after falling off and to get right back on the bike and try again and again and again till you get it. We had a few spills in the beginning but not as many as one might expect. Riding down hill was the biggest challenge. Sitting on a bike and peddling is one thing but when the bike starts to accelerate on its own down a hill is quite another.




Kristina Johansson, probably the best cycle coach in Sweden


Kristina who took charge of the lessons also deserves an ovation. The way she patiently gave encouragement and inspired confidence throughout the course was at least as inspiring as watching the students rapid improvement.


There was a time, at the start of the course when I will admit I was a bit worried. What have we started rolling? But now at the end all of my worries are gone. I’d even go as far as to say that our graduating pupils look a lot safer on two wheels than many experienced cyclists I regularly see randomly rolling down the roads.


The project’s name is fitting, cycling is for everyone.


If you’re interested in learning to cycle, know someone who is interested or have a bit of spare time to help and to be part of a truly inspiring project and live in the Gothenburg area, leave a comment on this post and we’ll get back to you really soon.

We would like to give Bräcke council a big thank you for helping to make everything work and for donating helmets as a graduation presents.
