Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for a project called “Feel the world – Be the Superhero” a Youth Exchange that which will take place from 17th until 25th August 2017 in Otepää, Estonia.
Last couple of years has brought us a lot of news about how refugees are taking unsafe ships, trains or any other vehicle to escape from their home countries. Some of them have to walk kilometers and kilometers to reach another country or people who would help them to leave the country. Mothers with children who are only couple of months old are leaving their homes without knowing where exactly or to which conditions they are going – if they have something to eat or not; if they have a place to sleep or not and if in that other country are some compassionate people who would help them to start a new life. All of this is done most often illegally.
Migration is probably the hottest topics right now. Everybody is talking about it and everyone have an opinion about it, but very few people actually know what is the difference between refugee, asylum seeker and immigrant, what are the causes of movement, do they have right to social protection or how countries should manage refugees.
The main aim of the exchange is to widen youngsters world view on the topic of migration, make them more tolerant and acceptable toward differences and give them competences to address the problem in society.
The objectives below make this aim more specific:
· Giving participants time and space to learn, share, experience and reflect on different dimensions of migration and mobility
· Develop participant’s tolerance and acceptance toward differences
· Develop deeper understanding about different sides and aspects of migration and mobility
· Develop cross-cultural awareness by providing structured space for sharing, experiencing and addressing intercultural learning
· Initiate co-operations between NGOs all around Europe to develop new initiatives in the field of youth and mobility within Erasmus+
This event will bring together 37 participants from Estonia, Greece, Portugal, Czech Republic, Poland and Italy. The event will be held in English. There are 5 vacancies available and participants should have minimum 18 years old and involved on the youth field.
The Erasmus + Programme will cover 100% of the accommodation, food and activities. There will be a participation fee of 25 Euros.
