Start date: Jun 9, 2015,
End date: Dec 8, 2015
„Outdoor – a never ending activity“is a youth-exchange for adolescents, between 15 and 18 years old, coming from different European countries: Estonia, Finland, Spain and Luxemburg. The youth-exchange takes place in Beaufort/Luxemburg from the 24th of July till the 1st of August 2015. The advanced planning meeting is in Diekirch/Luxemburg from the 9th till the 12th of June 2015.
We want to give the youngsters the possibility of getting aware of their own competences and to promote these skills. Furthermore we aim to show them how to use these competences in their future life. The objective of our project is to strengthen the adolescents during their future life and tasks (for example: becoming an adult, education, job, family,…).
20 adolescents from 4 different countries spend 7 days together. They get the chance to know each other and to appreciate and respect one another. The methods to implement the project are experiental pedagogy outdooractivities, topic related workshops, reflection-methods, cultural evenings and excursions. The non-routine setting enables them to stimulate their foreign-language, interpersonal, intercultural and social competences. Nevertheless, we seek not only to use language as a communication tool but nature as well.
Experiental pedagogy outdooractivities increase the self-awareness of the adolescents because of the experience they gain in certain situations. The experience creates a situation where they see what needs to be changed and what they have to do, to change it. The topic-workshop is our written method to make them aware of their competences and to keep record of it. The planed reflection-methods aim to give the adolescents the possibility to review the activities and to express constructive criticism. Through this methods and activities the adolescents get prepared to handle future challenges.
