The project called "ENVIRONMENTAL ART" was implemented in Gibellina (Trapani). It started 15th April and lasted 7 days.
In general the project wanted to encourage active citizenship among young people in Europe, promoting youth participation in the building of Europe and the development of youth work as an important element of civil society.
The aim was to produce garden space , debates, spread european campaign, visits and intercultural events which will be performed in a variety of locations at Gibellina. 16 young people took part in regular garden workshops, debates, rule play, and in the production itself.
Each young person in the group has had a specific task, such as communication, publicity, photo, management of rule play, lead garden activities, organize meeting in the school and so on, for which they was responsible.
The project was entirely initiated, designed and implemented by the young people themselves that collaborate with consortium.
The project helped the participants to encourage their autonomy, creativity and a spirit of enterprise among young people, particularly in the social, civic, cultural and environmental contexts.
The project focused on education for local, regional, national and European citizenship, particularly through the establishment of an Internet site to inform other European countries of the project’s creation so that they could develop it in their own towns and cities and communicate with other young Europeans.
In particular, the project wanted create a connection between Art and Environment recalling the path started by the Mayor Corrao after the earthquake in order to create for Gibellina a new identity.
These activities have created a positive impact for the community in general at local, and an important impact at national and european level thanks to the diffusion of the results through the participants.
