Cross-Border Participation - Building Bridges in Europe
Start date: 01 Aug 2014, End date: 01 May 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The project "Cross-Border Participation - Building Bridges in Europe" will bring one young European Volunteer from 01.11.2014 until 31.10.2015 to Frankfurt (Oder). The name of the project will be the content of it. The volunteer will come closer to the European specialties and will get to know where bridges still need to be build. Frankfurt (Oder) is located directly at the border to Poland. Only 500 meters of bridge are seperating us from our polish twin city Slubice. In such a city a special feeling for Europe can be developed. However such a location also brings challenges, as the borders of the European Integration become visible and the problems of common European strategies can be seen on local level directly. Therefore the location Frankfurt (Oder) at the pewobe brings the possibility to get to know Europe at its edges and borders, and at the same time to value its possibilities and to become active to overcome the borders. European Citizenship and participation of young people are the topics that will be worked on during this project. At an inner European border one can develop a new view on youth participation in Europe. The volunteer can get to now this view. The volunteer will come from Israel. She will be involved in the running project work, work with young people, will document the work for the public and will develop her own project based on the chosen topics. Her experiences in all this can be followed on a blog which will also serve the needs of the sending organisations. The volunteering service should help all persons involved to strenghten the European cooperation and to help much more young people to build bridges.
