Based on the events of the 20th and 21st centuries there are more and more novels and movies about space adventures, extraterrestrials and discoveries. Sci-fi is becoming one of the most popular genres and youth show everlasting interest in it. That is why we decided to take EU priorities like nature protection and healthy lifestyle and place them into a new theme which will give our youth exchange the ark that follows through during the project. Our goal is to make a lasting experience on our participants by introducing them to the main problems we face nowadays and the solutions we need to enforce for a better future. The project is titled “Space Jam” and it is planned by the young volunteers (20-23) of Open Space Association. The target group is European youth between the ages of 18 and 25, who are willing to participate in workshops where we use non-formal teaching methods, and who are ready to start learning by doing. We aim to widen their horizons, to gain new skills and strengthen our existing ones, and to contribute to their international experiences. During the project week we will have workshops about health and prevention (e.g. Healthy lifestyle, Space life), about sports (e.g. Astronaut training) and we will also include citizenship (e.g. Sapce settlers) as it is very important in our daily lives as well. To strenghten the cultural component we will have international evenings, a quiz night and we will visit nearby cities. We find it very important to get feedback from our participants, therefore we will have daily meetings with the leaders. At the end of the week we will also learn about the Erasmus+ programme and we will plan future projects. We will work not only with volunteers but with experienced social workers and youth trainers. Our participant will have the chance to improve their self-confidence, their language skills and to express their opinions freely. By this we would like to set new goals which we can forward to the public during and after the project.“Space jam” is taking place in Városlőd between the 5th and 14th of August, 2016. We will have 5 participants and 1 leader from each country (United Kingdom, Italy, Greece, Slovenia and Hungary). Every group will have the chance to prepare for the exchange and they will also be tasked to act as multipliers of our outcomes so we can reach a wider audience with our message: to infinity and beyond.
