Start date: Mar 15, 2016,
End date: Mar 14, 2017
"Immigration and the next Generation” is a multilateral project for young people from Kosovo, France and Ukraine, aged between 18 and 25 years old. Some of these young people will be recruited from disadvantaged backgrounds. The project will take place over ten days, this does not include travel. It will be located in Salm, next to Schirmeck in Alsace, France. This project is based on reflection and on the preparation of young people before the exchange. They will discuss about the issue of minorities and immigration within Europe, starting with reflections on their own country.Several discussions will be implemented on topics concerning young people in Europe, including issues related to minorities and immigration.... but also on issues that concern young people: social problems such as poverty and unemployment. The participants will identify the differences between countries in order to encourage mutual understanding and identify the points they have in common with their European peers. The project will use the methods of intercultural learning, a creative approach of informal learning with ways of artistic presentation (picture, film, theatre...), cooking workshops, and linguistic animations. One idea is to create a multilingual dictionary with the participants in order to assure the exchanges between them, each participant will contribute actively at the linguistic activities. The results of conference will be seen and shown through debates, workshops and youth exchanges, this will lead to an exhibition composed of information, pictures, drawings and paints, created by the participants during the conference. After that, the participants will develop transferable skills that will be used throughout the life. These skills will be:-The communication, planning of project, development of networks and decision making.-The acquisition of linguistic skills, presentation of themselves using different multimedia tools. -Team work.-Knowledge of others European countries and different systems of democracy. -Behaviour: tolerance, respect, understanding, self-esteem, self-confidenceAfterwards they will practise their new competences, in their countries, presenting and explaining in front of the public, their colleagues and youth centre participants. The young people who have participated in debates and in workshops in France will evolve from a passive role to a modern activist and become young ambassadors of Europe. The exposition will serve like a way of expression for European youth and will be circulated in different youth houses of our partners in Europe. It will allow to broadcast to the public (other young people of residence, official personalities...) the results of this exchange.
