Europejski Tydzień Młodzieży - Włącz się do gry!
Start date: May 1, 2015,
End date: Aug 31, 2015
The project "European Youth Week - Join in the Game!" is aimed at students of upper secondary schools in Kraków, particularly youth with fewer opportunities, who experience inequality and are marginalised in their environment.
The main objective of the project is to increase the awareness of young people about the possibilities of participation in public life and inspire young people to actively take part in social and professional life.
Planned activities include: educational city game, a seminar with experts and a forum for volunteering. In the city game, there will be around 10 teams of 4 to 5 students representing 5 upper secondary schools, both high schools and technical/vocational schools; 60 students in total.
Teams will follow the route marked out next to selected local and regional government institutions in Krakow. They will compete with each other to solve tasks given. During the seminar, participants of the city game will meet with experts - representatives of governmental and non-governmental organisations at the voivodeship level.
There will be a discussion about how to mobilise the youth, announcement of the results of the urban game and awards.
Open Volunteering Forum will encourage young people to engage in voluntary work and social activities at the local, national and international level. At this event, we are expecting around 100 young people, including students involved in urban game.
Visitors to the forum will be able to find out about the STRIM association, Regional Volunteering Center and other invited NGOs. The participants of the project will increase their knowledge about opportunities to take part in public life as well as they will know more on the institutional support for self-organization and self-government. Moreover, they will write summaries of actions taken throughout the project, which are going to be published in the school newsletters and on the website of STRIM association.
The other direct outcome of our project is to promote the ideas of the European Youth Week through PRYZMAT radio reportage that will be created in the course of the event. Long-term results of the project will be manifested in changes of attitudes, motivation and involvement of young people in creating beneficial social and professional realities of their lives. The most desirable long-term results of the project will be initiatives taken by young people, related directly or indirectly to the subject and objectives of the project.
