FIRE2005 Youth Exchange in Chios, Greece!

Welcome to our website, inside is a record of all the events surrounding the “Fire 2005” youth exchange in Chios, Greece.

The 10 day youth exchange took place on 26th April 2005 and involved more than 50 people from over 8 different countries. The theme of the exchange was about fire rituals and fire safety, all of this culminating in the main spectacle, the rocket war, an event that takes place once a year in Vrontados on Chios Island.

We also had many activities based around the Easter holidays, traditions like the painting and breaking of eggs, the Christian celebrations as well as an extra environmental conservation project.

Please feel free to explore the many articles and photos on our website.
