Common European Culinary Picture for Preserving Our Cultures!
Start date: 01 Jun 2016, End date: 31 Jan 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Common European Culinary Picture for Preserving Our Cultures! will take place in the second half of August in Săcueni, Bihor county and will take part 30 young people from Croatia, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary and Croatia. Although these countries are in central and eastern Europe, their gastronomy and culture is very different.The project goal is twofold:- Facilitating intercultural knowledge of the participating countries through gastronomy and raising awareness of the importance of maintaining their own cultural values in order to preserve European Multiculturalism for the future generations- Helping NEET participants to develop entrepreneurship and competences which could be advantageous for their employmentThe main activity of the youth exchange is the creation of five films that will present the cooking procedure of national dishes of the 5 aprticipante countries and the cultures and countries beyond the presented dishes. The videos will be presented to the public at an event conducted on the last day of the youth exchange, and shared of various mass media and online channels. Before making these films the participants will know how to prepare these dishes, but also the foundations of photoshooting, videoshooting, editing footage and blogging. The digital skills which will be developed are very useful nowadays, since employers require them for many jobs.Through this youth exchange participants will know initiatives that do not require large investments (production of home made products, food blogging), but they can provide a source of income if practiced diligently and industriously.The mobility consists of presentations and conversations related to the gastronomy of the countries, the role of food (just basic necessity or more, can it be an income provider), national cuisine cooking workshops and workshops to create videos about them, an event designed to the presentation of the videos, and other intercultural programs.At the end of the project participants will receive Youthpass with competences which they develop during the 7 days of activity.
