An art tour with an art teacher gave young people the courage to think outside the box and travel around Europe in their minds.We celebrated Time to Move campaign all over Viljandimaa county with street art tour which

Why does it correspond to the thematic category:

We shared youth information through not so common way. We used walking and talking and analysingi street art, which always tells us stories if you can read them. It is same with foreign languge - if you understand language, then you can talk with others; if you don't understand then it is hard to communicate. We wanted to tell participating youngsters that street art also tells you stories if you focus on them and look them detailly. If you do not look then you can't see messages through them.

The impact the initiative had on young people and the local community:

Participating youngsters impressed us with their creativity to travel in Europe trough drawing. They got new information about E+ opportunities and met new people all around Viljandi county.

How it ensured the visibility and promotion of Eurodesk:

We use #viljandimaaeurodesk which is the main # we use all around Viljandi county: https://www.instagram.com/reel/CyvbAEQtvuO/We also used #timetomove hashtag because this event was part of Time to Move campaign activity in Viljandi county.

How it respected the green principles:

We transported youngsters by car where as 5 people in one car, so we used shared transport.
