Environment in Clouds 2015
Start date: Apr 1, 2015,
End date: Jun 30, 2015
Environment In Clouds 2015 is an international youth exchange that will be taking place in Maribor (May 3rd, 2014 – May 10th, 2014), and is organized by the Association for Film Culture Development (Slovenia), Identities (Italy), Fundacion Universitaria San Aantonio de Cartagena (Spain), and Asociatia Support for Youth Developement (Romania). Guided by 4 youth workers, the 36 creative youngsters (mainly students and unemployed) from Slovenia, Italy, Romania, and Spain will get acquainted with the local, national, and the common European environmental protection challenges. The countries involved in the project are those that are facing a higher degree of pollution than most of the countries in the EU area. At the comics-making workshops, the participants will create at least eight different (environmentally friendly) stickers with short comics translated into five European languages that will be used to inform and educate about local and common environmental themes. By distributing these short comic strips in public places, the participants will encourage people to think about their own role in creating a nicer and cleaner environment. During the exchange, the participants will strengthen their competences of publicly communicating their opinion for achieving environmental protection goals, enhance the skills of working in a team, meet other cultures, make new friends, and find new, common ideas for the future.
