EUREN (European Encounters), a project which is part of the European Lifelong Learning programme, has been given the go-ahead for several of its members to travel to Portugal.
The group will travel from Huercal Overa to the Portuguese town of Povoa de Varzim to meet with several groups from across Europe. The first part of the programme will be presented by Poland, describing its history, culture and aspects in common with Spain. Spain is next with a feature on folklore, music and dance. Other countries in attendance include Belgium and the UK.
This is the fourth meeting after the UK, Poland and Huercal Overa in 2014. Mayor of Huercal Overa, Domingo Fernandez, spoke of the importance of these programmes and added: “Huercal Overa continues throughout Europe, a journey that will carry on with the recently adopted European Voluntary Service.”
The group selected to attend has been making preparations since March 2014, working on its objectives to exchange knowledge between European countries in order to achieve a rapport and offering opportunities to learn about the European Union. It aims to explore different cultures, fostering the ties between nations.
