"GREEN FOR YOUNG" is a youth exchange based on some internal reflections put forward by the group of youngesters, caused by the alarming environmental local situation. These concerns were shared wih our European peers in international meetings in which we participated. In particular the goals of this project designed at the last exchange on the european citizen's rights, in particular the right to health. THese reflections are taken up by some our european partners. Our intention is to develop and enhance our civic consciousness about the Environment in a European perspective.
The activities will take place from the 16th to the 23th of July in Bassano Romano.
The project will involve about 40 young people, most of them with few opportunities: geographic social and economic disadvantages, especially the project includes Rom people. They're aged between 18 -25. This age group is very sensitive towards your environmental and social issues , some of them are at the end of high school and college, so they are concerned about the problem of their social and professional future , they are very curious about environmental professions , so the exchange will act in some way to "career guidance" experience for some of them.
The objectives is focus on to: 1) promote mutual understanding between participants from different cultural contexts, help to break down stereotypes and prejudices against foreigners, and therefore become more open-minded, 2) raise awarness and encourage reflection on the issues and challenges of Environment , 3) improve participants' occupability, exploring in the world of jobs linked to the Green Economy, 4) , promote healthy lifestyles for a European society more human dimension; 5) Promote the active participation of young people to experience concretely active citizenship;
These objectves will be pursued with a set of activities that used various methods of non-formal education: ice breaking activities team building, specific session about intercultural learning, guided discussions with the facilitator's feedback and debrifieng on the topic of Environment, role playing and simulation, intercultural evenings, creative workshop, excursions in the region.
From this experience, we expect to have young people with environmental renewed civic consciousness, able to positively influence the territory in which they live, and also young people more aware of environmental issues and occupations that revolve around the Green Economy, therefore young people more aware and proactive in the social and professional choices they make.
