Diversity and Cultural Awareness around the European Union
Start date: 01 Aug 2016, End date: 31 Mar 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

This project will have 5 partners from from West Central and East of the European Union the countries are Bulgaria, Ireland, Slovenia, Poland and UK. We are looking for 12 young people and two leaders from each city to come together to learn different cultures during this Cultural Youth Exchange. The project will take place at The Eccles Hall School in Rural Norfolk. This is a residential school with different building for males and females accommodation. There are extensive grounds to use including outdoor activities. The school will provide 3 meals per day from Saturday 22 to Sunday 30 October 2016. which include a packed lunch for our cultural trips to London and Norwich. There will be an international day of cultural awareness; with each of the partners preparing and presenting food from their country for an international meal this will be followed in the evening by a cultural evening. We will be inviting local and national guests to come and sample the food and watch the cultural evening. There are two days of workshops around the theme of diversity, with the young people being split up into four mixed groups of country and gender. The workshops will be performed in a non formal way through art, drama, film and discussion, with a presentation from each group at the end of the workshops. There will be a day of outdoor activities where the young people will work together and learn new skills through climbing archery etc. During the evening activities the young people will be able to learn from one another and reach a mutual understanding from people from another country through dancing, singing and socialising.At the end of each day of the project there will be an evaluation both in small groups and as a whole. This will be done to confirm the feelings and experiences of the young people. They will also be able to evaluate around the planned outcomes that will be highlighted on the wall.The 60 young people taking part in this project are from many different backgrounds with fewer opportunities. During this project we are expecting the young people to gain in confidence. learn new skills and experiences through Communication team work and language. The young people will be made aware of the European Union and its citizenship and experience cultures from their new friends from around the EU. This project will have a lasting impact for these young people enabling them to be confident enough to advance their education or work experience. We are all looking to continue with this project and its themes with our Poland partners putting in an application to continue with magor learning experience.
