Collage of Europe
Start date: Sep 30, 2015,
End date: Sep 29, 2016
Collage of Europe is a Youth Exchange that will bring together 40 participants and 2facilitators from 8 different countries. The activities will be implemented from the 22nd to 29th July, so in the middle of hot Czech summer in Moravian town of Zlin, famous as a birthplace of Bata shoe company. The idea is to gather participants from different backgrounds, geographical and social circles in order to form the "human collage", using the methods of non formal education. Basically, we will develop various activities - such as role plays, discussions, group works etc.- in order to eliminate the prejudices or judgements that are based on misinformation. We want to achieve that by experience that can not be doubted - meeting in person. The main objectives are to raise discussions about our perception of European identity, the advantages of globalization and to share each other’s thoughts as well as developing the capacity of communication among participants in order to promote the dialogue based on enriching each other with a respect for the diversity. At the end of the week, they will have a unique chance to express themselves in a massive collage that will be formed by everyone's input and later printed as a billboard poster and facilitated in Zlín.
