Cross-Border Participation - Europe on the Edge
Start date: Jul 1, 2014,
End date: Apr 1, 2016
The project "Cross-Border Participation - Europe on the Edge" will bring to young European Volunteers from 01.11.2014 until 31.10.2015 to Frankfurt (Oder). The name of the project will be the content of it. The volunteers will come closer to the European specialties. 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 volunteers can get to now this view.
The two volunteers will come from Tunisia and Bosnia. They will be involved in the running project work, work with young people, will document the work for the public and will develop their own project based on the chosen topics. Their experiences in all this can be followed on a blog which will also serve the needs of the sending organisations.
