Secret Library is a youth exchange project that pursues the goal of making national legends more valuable among the modern technical-minded society. Every country has its own so-named stories, eposes, that, basically, describe national history in some kind of artistic way. That means it indeed is a good possibility for one to immerse into a completely unknown origin without the necessity of reading traditional info-sources. But, unfortunately, modern generations, especially young people, tend to forget these simple basics.
Secret Library will take place in the city of Tallinn, Estonia, during the March 2015 from 12th to 21th. Youngsters from all over the Europe - Estonia, Croatia, France, Germany, Hungary, Spain and Macedonia - who lack international experience and are eager for new discoveries will spend some time together trying to get to know other cultures through long forgotten way - storytelling. Project mixes different type of people, starting off with those, who have zero previous experience, and those, who have already gotten a chance to participate in such events, with youngsters who have some kind of social difficulties. This atmosphere should underline one of the very main principles of European Unity, which is equality among the people.
Project diminishes passive listening and boredom by itself, due to the programme saturated with all kinds of activities that imply interaction with others. Group discussions, workshops, simulation exercises and role plays should bring communication and collaboration to the completely different level.
With all the stories presented by participants we will be able to organize a big storytelling event with the great impact on local people in order to disseminate the outcomes of our non-formal and informal education. It will consist of set of legends to introduce every participating country and the very special final legend that includes elements of all the previous ones. As a concluding part, we will promote Erasmus+ programme through the presentation, its priorities and objectives, to inspire guests and spread the word among the people.
All things considered, Secret Library youth exchange provides a ground needed for people to meet each other, heavily increase knowledge about European Union and its structure as well as improve own skills and overcome fears for better employability in the future.
