Experiental Learning Forum

ELF is our invitation to Experiential Education.
We believe that education is essential.
We believe that there are a lot of great things already happening in this direction and a lot still to be done.

During ELF, you will find experiential activities that are dedicated to explore education through its broadness, diversity, multiple facets and interdisciplinarity.

ELF is organised with the main support of the European Solidarity Corps programme (through ANPCDEFP), thanks to which our team of volunteers and coordinators are dedicating their time to make the ELF do its magic.

ELF is for the community, for the young people, for the youth workers and social workers in Harja, Poiana Sarata, Oituz, Onesti.

Come meet us up!


ELF is co-funded by the European Commission Programme ESC (European Solidarity Corps), local sponsors and local authorities that are getting involved in organising the activity.

The Festival site is becoming a playground for educators, artist, trainers, coaches, social innovators to sharing their alternative methods within education, in classrooms, activities, extra curricular activities and reaching what is to be greater empowerment for young people, for parents, for educators, for employers.

The future lays within education, youth and us. All of us.

We are preparing all the facilities, camping site, food court (eco-bio and locally sourced), access to a variety of activities, meeting with international renowned trainers, speakers, artists and entrepreneurs.
