Summary of the project:
This is a multilateral youth exchange on cultural diversity whose aim is to get together young people from various social, cultural and ethno-racial background and provide them with social tools and skills by that helping them to raise the awareness for their cultural diverse surroundings, to find out and understand the differences as well as to be proud to except their cultural and personal identity that will lead to achieving personal, social and professional development. In this project we will discuss about the culture, gender equality, the ethics, the education system, the music, the traditional dances of all the partner groups. We will have lectures, team games, workshops and discussion about all the unique cultures that are included under Europe . We are going to make activities with the aim of knowing Europe: quiz, building maps, sport games, round table, open discussions, presenting traditional histories, workshops and outdoor activities. We will have a special day about mixing cultures and combine people from different background. The main topic of our exchange is discovering cultures and learns new ethics, arts and traditions. During the project we will try to build bridges between the European Youth and we will promote the volunteering and the values of our common future in Europe. Also during the project we will organize intercultural nights where all the partner groups will present their country, their culture, traditional foods, drinks, music and dances. With this project we want to mix different cultures and cross borders to other traditions, languages and mentalities by involving actively with groups from other countries.
This project targets the priorities of the ERASMUS+ programme since it tackles the issue of citizenship, youth participation, cultural diversity and inclusion at their most basic level. This will allow them to deal with fields of life, which are affected by those historical happenings. Improving cultural self awareness and developing interpersonal skills in a multicultural environment allows young people to be able to stand up for themselves, be more active, resist peer pressure and xenophobia, be more goal oriented and see life as a positive, meaningful experience. In turn, these young people will act as multipliers among their cohorts who in the long run will become better citizens. The working programme uses informal learning in form of discussing, games, group activities. Through those, they will experience a new way of discovering their own history. The programme implementation will be partly in hands of the participants themselves as well leaders providing input and guidance through the method of experiential learning. The preparation, implementation, evaluation and follow up will be coordinated by the leaders or contact persons of each country. The team composed by the youth workers and active youngsters coming from the different partner organizations will facilitate the learning processes of the young people involved. The non-formal education and experiential learning methodology will be the base of our activity.
