Abstract

This chapter reflects on the transformative possibilities for young people, their communities and museums through international exchange between ecomuseums and community museums in Scotland, Costa Rica and Portugal. It focuses on a case study that took place in Ecomuseum Druim Nan Linntean (Ridge of Ages) as part of the 2016–18 Europe-Latin America and Caribbean Museums (EU-LAC Museums) Bi-Regional Youth Exchange, reflecting on the role of the international exchange in transforming the lives and ambitions of the young people. We also discuss the project’s engagement in issues of sustainability and climate change resilience in Scotland and Costa Rica and review its impact on the community and the leaders involved.
