On a spaceship travel to democracy and European cicizenship
Start date: Sep 1, 2009,
The idea of the youth exchange is to bring young people from very different cultural and social backgrounds together in order to reflect on the issue of democracy and possibilities for active participation in different societies and countries. The project aim is to promote European citizenship as a set of values needed for equal participation, inclusion, diversity and sustainable dialogue betwwen countries and people. During the 8 days of the youth exchange 30 young people from Europe (Norway, Spain, Belarus, Serbia and Montenegro) will expirience a symbolic space travel as a common European team. Thus we believe young people will expirience democracy in practise by dealing with different challenges and making on decisions all toghether.We believe that team-drawing the vision of future Europe by young people from different countries, positive expirience and reflections will make encourage them to play more active role in society at local, national and international levels.One of the outcomes will be a published brochure and a DVD of participant's activity and public presentation. The video will aims to motivate and encourage other young people to take active part in their communities.
