"Exploring my everyday life through your eyes" - young people from Erlangen and Eskilstuna discover the others and themthelves - Project 2
Start date: Feb 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2015
The project takes place in Erlangen (Germany) and consists of 7 program days.The international youth exchange brings together a German and a Swedish youth group each comprising of 10 participants and 2 leaders (1 male and 1 female). The age of the participants ranges from 16 to 20 years. The topic of the exchange is "exploring my everyday life through your eyes – young people from Erlangen and Eskilstuna discover the others and themselves". Corresponding to this topic, the participants shall explore, present and reflect their everyday life. The fields "school", "leisure time", "family" and "social activities" are taken as examples.
The aim of examining and reflecting the everyday life is to recognize interrelations, forces, mechanisms, responsibilities and participation possibilities within these areas. In addition, the participants shall be encouraged and empowered to actively shape these and other areas of life. As a consequence, this approach supports the active involvement of young people facing their everyday life and, therefore, also the participants’ citizenship. This youth exchange primarily uses methods of informal and non-formal learning. In particular, the youth exchange focuses on field trips related to the selected areas of life: School, activities in the leisure time, social activities and the family. By preparing and wrapping-up the field trips in plenary sessions, small groups and in individual work the learning process will be even intensified.
Using immediate interaction on the project progression with young people from other European countries via Facebook shall open and leverage the project communication onto an European level.
In a succeeding project in Germany, the Swedish participants will get a realistic insight into the life of Germans in their own country and the respective fields of life are sustainably elaborated even further.
