Moving On Together
Start date: May 16, 2016, End date: Nov 15, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

tudes et Chantiers develops mobility projects for all, especially for young people and young people with fewer opportunities. Our international workcamps, youth exchanges and other mobility projects are open to all, with or without any skill or expertise.In France and our European network, we have observed that many young people preferred to leave via a group project for a first international mobility. We are getting more and more requests for group volunteer projects, both in France and for abroad. Youngsters with fewer opportunities in particular, with disabilities, from difficul urban districts or isolated rural areas, encounter several difficulties to engage individually on a project abroad (financial barriers, geographic isolation limited language skills, anxiety to leave without framing ...).We do not know how to adequately support these group applications (before, during and after the mobility experience), which partners have existing projects or how to organize specific projects for these pre-formed groups.The seminar, organized in Auvergne of 10 to 14th of October 2016 with 20 participants from several European countries (France, Czech Republic, Italia, Greece, United Kingdom (Scotland and Wales), Iceland, Belgium, Turkey, Estonia) aims to share our practices with our partners, and allow the establishment of group projects by 2017. Our goal is to encourage mobility of young Europeans, particularly the more distant youth mobility, increasing the skills and knowledge of youth organizations in Europe.The methods are methods of active participation, taken from non-formal education: ice-breakers, brainstorming, oral presentations, moving debate, world coffee, working alternately in small groups and large group.The morning will be devoted to collective reflection, definitions and proposals. The end of afternoons will be based on presentation of good practices of each participating organization.The workshops will focus on different themes along the days, to allow each individual to take his place in the group and become an active participant: definition of the concept of "group", inventory of forms of group mobility we already practice (or want to increase), how to organize a group mobility (What preparation, what specific logistics), how to accompany a group (individual / collective, fostering intercultural dialogue between groups), project ideas to implement in 2017.The results of the seminar will be in the form of a booklet in English and French, promoting and encouraging the implementation of group mobility projects. This booklet will be distributed locally and nationally by each partner involved, but also from European Alliance, both on the websites of each structure and with local partners and active members of each.
