Everyday we read news about the environmental and climate developments threatening the natural sports' fields of activity. The most inaccessible and eminent natural areas of Turkey and Europe polluting by natural sportsmen, is cleaning by the natural sportsmen again. However these initiatives are not sufficient nor effectual. As the Climbing Community of University of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, we prepared this project for making a contribution to awareness-raising on environmental issues among natural sportsmen and to new initatives fighting against environmental damages.
This project will be conducted in partnership with ASD Free Climbing Palermo from Italy which is a youth sports club. Each partner will participate to the project with eight youngs from18 to 27 ages and two monitors. Participants will be chosen among those who are familiar with advanced climbing techniques. They will also be the ones who are experiencing economical difficulties. Our project named "Clean Mountains" will last three mounths and we envisage a seven-day mobility between 8-14 september 2014. The host will be our italian partner.
During the mobility, the young participants who are interested in natural sports will come together and do awareness-raising activities on environmental issues by organizing thematic discussions, workshops, role play games and cultural activities. By doing this, they will be aware of the damages caused by sportsmen and they will try to find the possible prevention strategies. An experience and know-how exchange between the participants will also take place during seven days. They will share their ideas and suggestions with relevant institutions to spread the results of their work. This sharing will make the Erasmus+ Program's scope expanding sport and environment known by more youth organizations working on these areas.
Since the participants will be chosen among the ones who have low socio-economic conditions, the youngs who can not find the chance to travel abroad and to know different cultures and countries, will have an inter-cultural learning experience. Partner organizations will increase capacity on organizing international activities as well as the young participants and this will help them in their future EU project applications. The fact that the projects and partnerships increase and vary in this way, will let Turkey's and European countries' young people who lives in less developped regions, know better Europe and its neigbours both socially and culturally.
