Connecting Young Barents
Start date: Jun 26, 2012,
End date: Mar 30, 2015
The Barents region during the last few years faces the problem of the Youth outflow to the central and southern parts. This project is intended to create Communication network for the young people in the Barents region. It will give the youngsters the opportunity to share their successes, to meet and communicate with other youngsters, and as for youth workers it is a great possibility to establish contact with potential partners in the field of youth initiatives. The Communication Network is pointed at infecting young people with enthusiasm to live in the North, to inspire them feeling charm of living in the Barents region. The overall objective is to make contribution to the identity building of the people, living in the northern regions via culture, to promote people-to-people and civil society contacts at the local level. Achievements: The project has given young people of the programme region an arena to interact internationally, and to express themselves. Music, photos, and meeting and getting to know each other has been central. The young people may have got experiences that open their eyes to new viewpoints to the region, maybe encourage to stay on the region and encourage to cooperate across the borders.
