Rhytm of Life
Start date: May 5, 2015,
End date: Dec 4, 2015
Romans are a society that remains in purgatory, a large civilization which are trapped between identity and non-identity. Their only wish is to live equal and as humans do, unfortunately they have been marginalised and excluded by the Turkish and European populations. Most European people have compelled the Roman people to live with unsuitable physical conditions and have been forced to live in neighbourhoods that lack education and are forced to live without work. However, the Roman people have a rich culture. They enjoy their lifestyle which is fun and unique for them.
From this project, our participants with have a chance to learn about Romans and develop a sense of tolerance towards a different culture.
Nowadays, marginalisation, racism and ethnicity are highly important and prioritised agenda’s for the European Human Rights and as a group, we will examine these subject in a precise manner.
To ensure the welfare of society and to sustain the continuity of disadvantaged group in terms of importance for the discussion and creation of awareness in the community. In line with this awareness, such an important issue of identity of the concrete indicators should not only stay working inside the Turkish borders, it should be on an international plane after discussing this subject with the European Union Human Rights. We anticipate to provide added value to the society.
Our goal is not to solve the fundamental problems. Usually the youth of Europe develop a tolerance based perspective, especially Turkish youth and local people. Thus, young people with different cultures, will become acquainted with the world of Romans and will try to understand them.
The most important goal of our project is to help you understand that young people can contribute to the purification of the bias and that different cultures can live together with love and tolerance.
Our project consists of a 7 night, 8 day youth exchange project. Edirne has been identified as the city which our project with be held because of the Roman culture present there. In our project, a total of 42 participants from 7 countries, along with a marginalised Roman community, and we intend to discuss the different experiences and thoughts. Both of the intercultural dialogue as well as the name of humanity which are important issues for tomorrow’s hopes of young people. As discussed in the literature of the Roman community, secluded from the theory, as a practical learning would allow. Especially after this project is complete, it will contribute to the next projects our group does. Different culture’s participants which have similar problems in their country, will see a new perspective after this project, and we therefore feel that this topic can move onto the European agenda.
This project will carry out activities within the scope of the Romans and will recognize the culture with a hands on technique to gain skills and to participate in practical work and visits to the neighbourhoods. Romans will come together with these people.
From all of this, we are planning that all participants are actively involved in the project, the young people from different cultures will bring together important data within the framework of tolerance and achievements. During our project where we will report our activities, we will use collaborative, creative drama activities, project/group based work, outdoor activities, discussion activities and hands on learning approaches for learning. With these methods, the needs of the participants will be responded at the European level.At the end of our project, the participants will be satisfied and in line with their expectations and qualifications, and they will no doubt execute similar studies in their own country.
