The third edition of the educational expedition “Route to Exile” will gather forty young people from July 15 to 30. They will visit the places of memory of the republican and civil exile in Navarre, Catalonia and the southeast of France. The expedition will be carried out, fundamentally, on foot and by bus.
This summer activity includes itineraries of the 1936 repression in Navarre and will once again explore the Pyrenean border and the Mediterranean coast between Catalonia and France from July 15 to 31. The call is aimed at young people from all over Spain who are between 16 and 17 years old at the time of issuance, and registration will close on April 9. The activity is free, since the available places will be fully covered by the Ministry of Social Rights and the 2030 Agenda through INJUVE and the aforementioned collaborating entities.
Exile, memory and national identities are the three axes of the academic program of this expedition, which bears the full title Route to Exile 2023: Scars of the landscape. The themes will be addressed on the ground through workshops related to archaeology, the environment, photography, theatre and other interdisciplinary proposals, including the collective interests of the expedition members themselves.
Heir to other awareness-raising experiences, Route to Exile is an educational project that is consecrated and launches its third edition after receiving more than 450 applications in its two years of existence. The aim of this project is to provide Spanish youth with tools to establish connections between stories of the past, events of the present and imaginaries of the future, promoting their civic spirit and active participation in the resolution of current conflicts.
