This Youth Exchange will occur in Peniche, Portugal in the period of 9 days: from 24th September until 2nd October 2016. It will bring together youngsters from 3 different countries: Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Italy and Portugal; 7 from each county, 21 altogether. All the organisations involved in this project work with youngsters with fewer opportunities in order to give them a chance to grow and learn more about the partner countries and work on their social and personal competences. Various games and outdoor activities will be carried out in order to approach the subject of the project (Participative Democracy/Youth Participation). Participants will be learning about and from each other, and will work on their teamwork skills and overcoming language barriers. The main objective of the project is an exchange and transfer of knowledge and know-how in different areas related to Social, Cultural and European Awareness based on non-formal education. Each participant will take part in a multicultural and gender-sensitive group devoted to one of the 3 workshops: Performance, painting and media. We expect to achieve the following objectives:• To strengthen the participation of youngsters in their communities;• To enable youngsters to take initiative; • To improve the sense of European citizenship in young people through their participation;• Developing personal and social skills;• Promoting the European cooperation in the youth field. We have chosen the theme based on the possibilities it offers participants to work on their perception, activeness, creativity, initiative and entrepreneurship. Working together in a multicultural environment and learning from each other can encourage better ideas and inner motivation among the youngsters and it is one of the priorities of the YiA. It also opens their minds for the building up of a Europe with differences but with the same aims and values. By participating in this kind of projects the youngsters can get more information and be involved in others projects under the Erasmus +.
