Make it MedEATerranean!
Start date: Jun 1, 2016,
End date: Mar 31, 2017
“Make it MedEATterranean!” is a youth exchange (KA1, Erasmus+ programme), 10 days long, that involves 30 young people coming from 5 countries: Italy, Greece, Spain, France and Turkey. The exchange will take place in Tramonti (SA) from September 14th to September 23rd, 2016. The main topic of the project is the intercultural learning through food, culinary traditions and healthy and sustainable lifestyle. Participants will share knowledge about Mediterranean cultures through their eating habits and reflect upon the connection between the way we eat and the way we live and feel. Moreover the exchange aims at raising awareness about the impact of our everyday food consumption on environment and at providing young people with tools and know-how's in promoting and enhancing local products by using new technologies (social media, network, campaigns, etc.)The activities will consist in mutual exchange and sharing one's own customs: through workshops based on non-formal education methods the participants will learn / find out more about the other cultures, in order to eliminate the barriers and the prejudices between them. The participants will be also actively involved and run by themselves cooking laboratories: by preparing their own traditional dishes and trying the cuisine of other countries they will identify the differences and the similarities among the dietary traditions of different areas of the Mediterranean region. Moreover, the project will be focused on rediscovering of typical local products that may become new brands of the territory and ensure ethical consumerism by reducing energy consumption.Finally, the participants will be invited to create a toolkit/cookbook, available online, with some traditional recipes based on typical local products from each region/country involved in the project, to experiment one of possible ways to promote healthy and sustainable lifestyle, using new technologies and ensuring a follow-up of the youth exchange.
