Land & citizenship
Start date: Feb 1, 2015,
End date: Jul 31, 2015
The project Land & Citizenship project aims to promote citizenship, especially the right to vote. In a context where people are becoming increasingly suspicious of the political class, it seems appropriate that future generations realize the power that is the right to vote.
Our project is multi-level, we thought it in order to promote cultural exchange, citizenship, autonomy and togetherness.
- The cultural exchanges with the discovery of "the other" and his culture and his language
- Citizenship through our workshops and discussions on the operation of our respective institutions
- Autonomy using active learning, we will let the youngs choose, decide, organize, manage by their own
- Living together through seven days of community life
This project will bring together 51 people from three different countries, Bulgarian, Greek and French, for 7 days in Avignon. The group consists of 15 young people between 15 and 17 years and 2 adults for each partner.
Throughout the project we will be required to visit the places of the French democracy (town hall, General Council, Regional Council) and their elected representatives. Our partner Bulgarian and Greek will present how the democratic process in their country unfolds. The goal is to put into perspective the differences and similarities of the three systems to promote exchange and discussion during workshops and the exchange.
Group life will also be a learning and enrichment source, the young will be actors of the project they must undertake before (preparation and documentation) and after the exchange (impact and dissemination. Do not forget the benefit improvements related to the use of English during the exchange, it will refine some, others relaxed, others will realize the value of mastering the language .....
In the longer term, encouraging mobility of young people and get them to confront other culture will allow them to expand their horizon of life (professional and / or private), and pass from a national vision to an European vision , even International.
