Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for Youth Exchanges which will take place during the whole summer in Estonia.
TITLE: Enter Dignityland!
DATES: 6th until 14th July 2021
TOPIC: Social Rights and European Social Charter in Practice!
PARTICIPANTING COUNTRIES: Estonia, Czech Republic, Italy, Spain and Poland
The term Social Rights has became a buzz word lately. Everyone speaks about it, but no one really knows what does it mean and people keep asking: Is it just about human rights? Is that rights from European Union or not? What does it includes? How can put it to our projects? How can we make it concrete and practical to act in my community?
Enter Dignityland is a youth exchange, which was developed as tool to help young people to understand the concept of social rights, notice the violence of it and help those in need. Have the European Social Charter as base and background; we will approach the idea of Social Rights in different levels: Housing, Education, Health, Employment, Non-Discrimination, Legal and Social Protection and Movement of Persons. We will work and share on case, examples and community in practice. Together, we will be working on improving the “good examples” on how to motivate youngsters aware and active on their community and beyond.
TITLE: The Adventure of Learning Outside
DATES: 15th until 23rd July 2021
TOPIC: Outdoor Education and Leadership!
PARTICIPANTING COUNTRIES: Estonia, Moldova, Czech Rep, Spain and Ukraine
The practice of outdoor education has been an active part of non-formal education for years, and due to its interactive character it has experienced many stages of development: both in theoretical, conceptual, pedagogical, practical and case-to-case ways. The term ‘outdoor education’ has been defined and used in many ways. Some time ago outdoor education was used as a synonymous with environmental education and outdoor recreation. The term, however, has transformed itself from environmental education to broader meanings and now it is frequently applied to programs or activities that can be, and usually are, conducted in the out-of-doors, and implying an interaction between the participant and the outdoor environment.
The general essential characteristics of outdoor education nevertheless have stayed the same. It occurs in the out-of doors, it has its participants directly involved in the activity, it involves the interpretation of original objects, it defines relationships rather than reciting individual, apparently isolated facts, it involves as many senses as possible and it invites participation because activity is perceived as being interesting, challenging and/or even fun. So, outdoor education activities now seek to develop values relating to group work (in-group versus out-group), leadership and self-esteem.
This Youth Exchange aims experiential learning methods of outdoor education, with a perspective on improving and including those groups of youth that are faced with social exclusion for numerous reasons (cultural background, sexual orientation, socio-economical position, etc.) in an Europe post-Covid 19.
TITLE: What’s Next?
DATES: 24th July until 1st August 2021
TOPIC: Career Guidance and Find Your Passion!
PARTICIPANTING COUNTRIES: Estonia, Moldova, Czech Rep, Italy, Ukraine and Georgia
This youth exchange intends to approach present obstacles in our society where young people express themselves only in the virtual world and social media but has very little confidence to communicate outside the virtual word, and therefore make positive and constructive decision in their real life.
Our youth exchange intends to be a place where youngsters (16 – 20 years old) can express themselves about what’s next in their life. Study? Occupation? Work Life? Family? Which kind of life you can have and how to achieve it?
We would like to open the space where we could practice our communication, share our experience and talk about the best way to achieve our dreams either in education, private life and career. Above all, we intend to create a space to boost young people’s confidence to Find Their Passion!
Each event will bring together over 30 participants from different countries in Europe. The event will be held in English. There are few vacancies available and participants should be from 18 until 25 years old (Whats Next is from 16 until 22 years old).
The Erasmus + Programme will cover 100% of the accommodation, food and activities and will reimburse 100% of the travel costs for the participants – up to 20 euros. There will be a participation fee of 20 Eur. per participant.
