Mind Your Heritage II: Dance for City's Life
Start date: Apr 1, 2014,
The idea of the youth exchange leads to the results of the project ‘Mind your Heritage’ organized by ADVIT Moldova in June 2013 and the great impact on local community made by it. Nowadays Chisinau as other European cities faces problem in protection of the cultural and historical heritage, thus the city which used to be one of the most beautiful cities of the area today is just losing its cultural and historical richness and becomes less attractive. As a result, the city is losing its identity, but we believe that youth is able to turn the clock back. During the 1st edition of Mind your Heritage a group of young people from 6 European countries came up with conclusion that the only way to save the heritage is to make young people love their city. Today despite the continuous destruction of the city and general lack of social responsibility among the authorities and inhabitants, the youth of Chisinau made a great step towards a change. The idea is to show how youth can Mind its Heritage through a creative action: dance, music, graffiti and etc. The youth exchange will take place during July 10-17 2014, in Chisinau, Moldova. There will be an international group of 30 young people from 3 EU countries – Latvia, Bulgaria, Poland, and from 3 EECA countries – Moldova, Georgia and Armenia. The total duration of the project is 8 days, including arrival and departure.The project aims are to raise the awareness of the European community and locals on the cultural heritage of Chisinau and to show the creative ways of a social action which can be used by youth for protecting their heritage. The activities planned will encourage the participants to demonstrate their creativity towards the realization of the common goals and thus will contribute to the personal development of competences. The aim is planned to be achieved by such methods as urban flashmobs and city quests, team building exercises, action planning, group and individual reflections and evaluations, etc.
