This project is a bilateral youth exchange funded by the European Commission through the "Erasmus +: Youth in Action" program. Will take place at any time in Molins del Rey and Barcelona.The overall project objective is to increase self-esteem and self-awareness, and promote the active participation of young Europeans and fewer opportunities regardless of their origin using the Hip Hop and non-formal learning mechanism.The project duration will be aAs week and the countries involved are Spain and France. The total number of participants is 30. The raised activities revolve around the world of Hip Hop in all its forms (dance, rap, graffitty and DJ) as a vehicle for the active participation of the young people. The applied methods is participatory, active and very dynamic, supported by non-formal and informal models. Both the activities and methods can be seen in accompanying document.This project puts us in a new scenario, to which we do not find ourselves if not for the participation in projects like this. This project will see other ways of living day to day, the prospect that each gives to the problems that we have in common and young Europeans puts us in a space of greater awareness of other cultures.Our project promotes dialogue between young people from different backgrounds and cultures, as it is a bilateral project, that is, two bands, with the wealth of nuances that entails. So, we promote intercultural encounters that will both non-formal and informal spaces.This project will also help to prevent and combat prejudice, where we highlight those that lead to exclusion in its broadest sense. We look forward to the participation of each and everyone irrespective of origin, economic status, social stratum. We will pay special attention to the inclusion of women and men equally. There also will monitor balance nationalities, when we do group activities.Finally, we emphasize that this project encourages a sense of mutual respect and understanding of diversity. This project is like a small sociological, intense and extremely instructive experiment.This project will have a clear effect in strengthening the sense of European citizenship among the young people who will participate in it. But so will the people who will indirectly contact and join us for activities and even after the conduct. Thus, other youth groups, media and even technicians, experts and politicians will be more present than ever the importance and value we have young people as drivers of social change, with a clear European focus.This project will also have a more intimate and personal effect. It will allow us to understand our role as part of the present and future of Europe, as key players in the process of change and improvement.So it added, this project reflects a common concern for us and for the whole European society, such as racism and xenophobia (in this project will involve young children of immigrants, black people who come from France descendants of people from from former French colonies), drug abuse (and we insist on the healthy practice of Hip Hop, especially dancing).The themes we have chosen for this project are the result of long discussions and reflections between the two partners. We have found that these issues correspond to the interests and needs of the participants. Since we are people linked to Hip Hop and the activities have developed mutual agreement, there have been disagreements in this regard.The working methods are detailed in the document the activities, but we advance in this paragraph that the methodology is particularly active and dynamic, given the characteristics of the groups themselves promoters. Hip Hop is a physically demanding activity, which added the changing scenarios where we will develop activities, which characterizes non-formal education.
