Feel the rights!
Start date: 01 Aug 2016,
End date: 28 Feb 2017
Backround of this projects relies in August 2014, when group of young people with their leader went to Slavonski Brod, Croatia to meet croatian young people from small town. Now it is time to take one more step and go deeper to human rights of young people and learn also more about nature around us. Objectives of the project is more tolerant participants and also give participants more knowledge about their rights as a young people in Europe and how they can empower themselves and make a difference in their own communities and possible later on (Inter)national level. Participant of the project are 14-19 years old and coming from different kind of social backrounds. We want to give a chance for everyone to participate no matter where you come from. Our activities will include thematic discussions, non-formal methods in activities, role playing but also experiencing new things with the help of our nature in Finland. For workshops with the human rights, we are giving the responsibily to "older" young people, who will guide other participants through the learning process with the support of professional youth workers. Participants will gain experience not only in the human rights but they can also gain experience in their leadership, social and teamwork skills what is needed when they transfer to working life after school. Project results will vary from individual experience to common good. We want participants to be more confident in their own lives and communities, but also get more information about the topic and we want to give more tools to them to deal with the issues of rights of young people in their communities. Through peer learning and example set by older young people, we hope that this is even more powerful than the example of adults. Participant opinion of longer term benefits are more tolerant community and welcoming attitude toward new people coming from other countries and understanding the needs of human rights. We want all the people involved in the project to gain more information about the situations in participating countries and we want together "make a fuzz" about the incorrect situations in our communities in Europe.
