Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for a Youth Exchange called “From Bell Tower to Europe” which will take place in 29th June until 8th July 2013 in Marcellinara (Calabria), Italy.
It is a trilateral youth exchange for 10 days and will involve 24 young people from 16 to 19 years old (plus 6 group leaders) from Italy, UK and Estonia. We want it to be an authentic chance of interaction, mutual understanding and integration in the common framework of a European Union able to put the people with its values at the centre of any action.
Main themes are identity, culture and cultural differences, inclusion and social cohesion, European citizenship, sport, wellness and environment. The most important objective, in fact, is helping young generations to become active, positive and responsible citizens of our tomorrow communities. The project will implement several activities, which go from team and individual games to role-plays and simulation games, from energizers to outdoor activities and sports, from ice-breaking to group building, from educational and interactive workshops to brainstorming experiences, presentations and discussions, from confrontations to problem solving, from video and picture making to thematic focus-groups, from arts and creative performances to intercultural parties and funny experiences.
Methods applied are based on non-formal, participative and experiential learning, on promotion of intercultural dialogue and on the empowering of team-building, decision-making, responsibility, creativity and entrepreneurship.
This Exchange will bring together 30 participants from UK, Estonia and Italy. The exchange will be held in English. There are 10 vacancies available and participants should have minimum 15 years to 17 years old (4 participants) and from 18 years old to 25 (4 participants) and 2 leaders (without age limit).
The Youth in Action programme will cover 100% of the accommodation, food and activities and will reimburse the participants with 70% of the travel costs. There will be a participation fee of 40 Eur. per participant.
