The project “Crossing Cultural Borders: A North-South Exchange” (Norway-Spain) is a cultural exchange between young Norwegians and young Spaniards, so they can discover both cultures, find common grounds regarding youth needs and increase their European citizenship.

The project was implemented by Vevang Vel (Norway) and Biderbost, Boscan & Rochin (Spain), with the support of the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission.


Non-Formal Education

Non-formal education is the learning which takes place through planned activities, in terms of learning objectives and learning time. Where some form of learning support is present, but which is not part of the formal education and training system.

European Citizenship

This youth exchange was implemented to strengthen the development of a critical, democratic and creative European Citizenship. In order to encourage an active social, political and cultural role to construct a shared Europe. And in doing so, to support the implementation and quality of the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission.


Youthpass is an European recognition tool for non-formal and informal learning in youth work. Youthpass is for projects funded by Erasmus+ Programme. With Youthpass the participants of these projects can describe what they have done and show what they have learnt.



The new Erasmus+ programme aims to support actions in the fields of Education, Training, Youth and Sport for the period 2014-2020. The programme gives opportunities to students, trainees, staff and volunteers to spend a period abroad to increase their skills and employability.
