Geschichte erleben - Verantwortungsvoll handeln
Start date: 01 Aug 2016,
End date: 31 Dec 2017
The EVS project “Expiriencing history - building the future" by Action Reconciliation Service for Peace (ARSP) is a one-year international encounter program with the focus on history, present and the consequences of the National Socialist era in the different european societies. During these 12 month four young people from Germany will support four hosting projects in the Ukraine, Russia and Israel. Through the European Voluntary Service in the field of historical-political education the young Germans can learn the concepts of active citizenship and civil involvement as for a politically stable and peaceful Europe but also for good relations with the european partner countries. In addition, they gain skills and abilities for their future professional life.The memories of occupation and extermination policy of the National Socialist regime in the Ukraine, Russia and Israel are still alive and quite painful. Volunteers' participation can be seen as a sign of solidarity and Europe's cohesion also at times of crisis or conflict. In this context, we cooperate with our project partners, who take the responsibility for the volunteers and support them with advice and assistance. Especially in the current situation it ist important to support the civil society engagement in these countries.The project contributes to a better understanding and cooperation between European Union and its partner coutries; serves to strengthen the local civil organisations and to support the people, who are active in social cohesion, dialog and human rights protection.
