ONEWORLD- CHANGE-School"ONEWORLD-Change-School , "ONEWORLD- CULTURE-Cafe" and „ONEWORLD-CHANGE-Cafe“, are a line of projects beginning in 2015. These projects are bringing together young people from Europe, Ukraine, and Russia, providing a platform and environment where contradictions can be discussed, friends can meet, and enemies can reconcile. In this framework of cultural sharing, stories can be expressed, music and songs can be sung, films are made, acrobatics performed, meals shared, and coffee and tea drunk together in communion. The first leg of the project was held in southern Siberia in Russia from 22.02-22.03.2015, where 3 groups made of youth from Russia and Germany built the basic material structures for the Mobile Cafe in the next leg of the project. These consisted of a Yurte in a light bamboo style, a small block house, furniture and other interior pieces for the cafe (5 Tachtui). The setting was a beautiful lake landscape in the eastern Saiyan mountains. The participants had overland trecks with snowshoes and skis, learnt from traditional and art oriented handcrafters, and learnt valuable survival knowledge of the wild from local hunters. The various groups lived in traditional houses and in a Mongolian Yurte with a stove-oven. The project ended with The One World Cafe opening and official cultural event, ran together with the locals with whom they bonded and created strong friendships.Structure: 21 Day youth Exchange (01.03-21.03.2015)Participants: 20 + 3 RU; 20 + 3 GEProject Coordintation: Grüner Grashalm e.V. / InterraIn the second part of the project in August 2015, the One World Cafe will have its first tour in Russia.
