Travel information
HOW TO REACH IZOLA:
There are many ways to reach Izola. The following options are the most comfortable.

1. Venice International airport Marco Polo, Italy: The distance from the airport to Izola is about 180 km. From the airport to Izola you can take a shuttle bus GoOpti. Pick-up location: Marco Polo Airport (VCE), Venice, Italy Drop-of location: San Simon bay, Izola, Slovenia It should cost around 25 EUR/person/one way. You have to buy tickets in advance.

2. Venice-Treviso airport, Italy: The distance from the airport to Izola is about 180 km. From the airport to Izola you can take a shuttle bus GoOpti. Pick-up location: Marco Polo Airport (VCE), Venice, Italy Drop-of location: San Simon bay, Izola, Slovenia It should cost around 25 EUR/person/one way. You have to buy tickets in advance.

3. Triest airport Ronchi, Italy: The distance from the airport to Izola is about 70 km. From the airport to Izola you can take a shuttle bus GoOpti. Pick-up location: Trieste Airport (TRS), Trieste, Italy Drop-of location: San Simon bay, Izola, Slovenia It should cost around 20 EUR/person/one way. You have to buy tickets in advance.

4. Airport Jože Pučnik Ljubljana, Slovenia: The distance from the airport to Izola is about 130 km. From the airport to Izola you can take a shuttle bus GoOpti. Pick-up location: Ljubljana Airport (LJU), Ljubljana, Slovenia Drop-of location: San Simon bay, Izola, Slovenia It should cost around 60 EUR/person/one way. You have to buy tickets in advance.

There is a second option for traveling from Ljubljana Airport to Izola. Take a bus to Ljubljana bus/railway station. From Ljubljana bus/railway station take a bus to Koper or a train to Koper. From Koper there are local buses going to Izola every 30 minutes.

NOTE: I advise you to use Venice Marco Polo or Venice-Treviso airport in Italy and from there the shuttle (Goopti) to Izola or if more participants will arrive at the same time I can arrange a driver who can bring them to Izola and can issue an invoice. In my opinion this is the easiest and most convenient way.

1. Home works
YiA4SDG is a complex project and we will have to clarify many aspects in details to the kick of meeting. As you can see in agenda it is planned a session for every partner presentation. Of course your organizations are involved in a large spectrum of activities with many beneficiaries having many local, national and international partners.
This is the reason that we are 9 youth structures working together for SDG.
But to be sure that we have the chance to access the right information from all of us we propose you to create a presentation before your departure. All these materials will be an important support to build and reshape the objective of the other meeting sessions.

Pre-departure preparation
presentation of YiA4SGD partners
1) Brief background (basic information, strengthens, weaknesses, expertise regarding SDG)
2) your organization SDGs work related (do they have SDG project experience or not)
3) What your organizations are looking for ( support/ helps/ consultation, etc) being part of this project.
So, please answer to these 3 points and send the result of your work back to actor_romania@yahoo.com. I ll upload all of them in our G Drive and our FB group to files. DEADLINE IS 20.04.16.

2. Bring with you
Please bring with you the 2 original of the contracts signed by the legal representative of your organization- to be signed by all partners.
Please bring all the financial documents regarding visa costs and travel. Please do not forget that you need to save every small boarding pass or ticket. All these documents are very important for the final report.

3. Weather
The spring in our host place is warm and nice, but sometime is raining. More details you can find here:
