This bilateral youth exchange will take place over the span of one year. It has been named 'City Lights' in view of the fact that both partner country participants are referred to as living in the City. Furthermore, the Sunderland stadium is called the Stadium of Lights. The Valletta Local Council and Riverside Consulting CIC in the United Kingdom will be working together to create a project for their youths revolving around the topic of sports, culture and climate. It is the norm that certain countries excel in certain sports on account of the fact that the climate conditions are on their side. This project will therefore aim to shine light on the different cultures of the two partner countries. In turn we will not only be encouraging youths to be active and healthy but we will also be discussing culture in relation to climate.
This project will take place in two parts, the first being an exchange held here in Malta and the second being an exchange held in the UK. The exchanges will last six days each (8, including travel days), and will have a total of 40 participants, 18 from either country and a total of 4 leaders, 2 per group.
Both exchanges will include different exercises of a non-formal education nature where the groups will be sharing facts about and discovering each other's culture especially in relation to sports. In view of this, we will be learning about the different ways in which the climate of a country can affect the natural talent of the citizens of that country. Throughout the exchanges we will be organizing several outings and activities that will allow the young participants to be active and sportive whilst also being given the opportunity to experience the culture of the hosting country.
The project will end with a video documenting the entire project from start to finish and showing all conclusions that the young participants come to throughout the project.
