European Voluntary Service in Béarn & Basque Country II
Start date: Aug 1, 2015, End date: Aug 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The project "EVS in BBC II" gathers 5 organisations and 2 volunteers who will be hosted in France. All of them will develop a long-term project together. The common theme of the project is animation, but in different fields: - one is focused on culture within the Cultural Department of the University: arts, circus, theatre, concerts - the other one hass for central project the animation of a community garden, used as a tool for social inclusion and animation of a neighbourhood, as well as a tool for the activities of the Youth Centre. This project is also two different sectors working together: the one of non-formal education and the one of formal education, due to the fact that one of the hosting organisations is a University. Pistes-Solidaires is only the coordinating organisation in this project and will therefore pay fully attentin to the tutoring of the hosting organisations and the volunteers. "EVS in BBC II" is also an educative process of skills development that gives an important place to "learnings' (learnng to be and learning to live altogether) and gives a complete tutoring of the volunteers for their learnings thanks to a tool and a method developed by Pistes-Solidaires: Comp-Pass. In addition to the main themes, this project aims at promoting "Europe" in the general sense, in each partner country. Thanks to it, the cultural diversity of Europe will be highlighted. The participants will contribute to make their own culture in other countries (and vice versa). This objective was born from the analysis that despite the geographical proximity, European people do not know well their "neighbours", even the closest, and that the stereotypes are numerous. Therefore, we want to create dialogue and exchanges between the citizens, without taking into consideration the countries they come from. The main theme of the project being animation, we want to enable the development of animation methods as well as the exchanges of good practices in the field of youth and education for sustainable development, between the organisations but also towards the volunteers. Participation, creativity and entrepreneurship are some key words of this project, in the way that the youngsters will have the opportunity to get involved in existing activities of the hosting organisations but also to take initiatives and propose their own activities. The partnership, the realization of the impact aim at developing a cooperative approach of the entrepreneurship spirit of the youngsters (do with them and not against them). By sharing the tools for tutoring led by Pistes-Solidaires as a coordinating organisation, the project aims at developing methods that could be used by partners from different countries in order to multiply them in the future (follow-up, work on the development of youngsters, tutoring methods...) This EVS project is composed of 2 mobilities, one lasting 10 months and the other one 12 months. The two mobilities will start at the same time. "EVS in BBC II" project gathers an experienced partnership in the fields of European projects and learning mobilities and associates youngsters with fewer opportunities.
