Picturing a Volunteer World - From Vision to Video
Start date: Aug 1, 2012,

With the youth exchange "Picturing a Volunteer World - From Vision to Video" we want to gather together 40 youngsters coming from 8 programme countries in order to discuss and promote the role that media can have among young people in the matter of voluntarism and social inclusion. For 7 days, the participants will be together in Kaunas, Lithuania, to present the picture of social exclusion in their countries, defining who is excluded in their communities, how and why. The different stories of exclusion will be the inspiration for the realization of different videos, showing how the media industry can influence the mind of young people, both in a negative way (contributing in the creation of prejudices), and a positive one (promoting how volunteering can help the building of an equal society). The videos realized by different groups of youngsters will be shown in a final public projection and included in a DVD for further dissemination of results. The main methodology throughout all the exchange will be non formal education, including methods such as round tables, brainstorming, working in groups, drawing, theatre, roleplay, simulations and creative writing.
