"The seed of the future" is a trilateral youth exchange to be held in Marcellinara (Calabria, Italy) in the period 13-22 September 2016 among 30 young people aged between 16 and 19 years, perfectly balanced in terms of gender, from Italy, Latvia and UK. Plus three group leaders, who will also meet for a necessary APV (19-22 August). It aims to contribute to the development of a positive attitude of participants towards themselves, their community, the ''other” and the environment. Receiving also the call made by Pope Francis. As this project is based on the assumption that young people are the "seed" of the future. Of their future, but also that of their town, of their Country and, finally, of a diverse but united Europe.Therefore, the aim of this project is to introduce participants their rights but also their duties, responsibilities and opportunities inherent in being citizens and acting as citizens. The main topics are European awareness, active European citizenship, social responsibility, creativity and entrepreneurship, protection of the environment but also the health and well-being.The objectives and the impact of the project will affect primarily the participants but then, consequently, their own families, communities and their towns. And the partner organizations. In the wake of that active European citizenship that here we want to contribute to nurture and build and make the protagonist both at local and EU level. Hence, the project's impact on young participants and their local communities will be realised when these objectives will be achieved and maintained not only in the immediate, but in the medium and long term as well. First of all, the impact on participants is measured in the contribution the project will make to the development of their knowledge, skills, competencies and attitudes, at the individual, social and cultural level. In addition, the project's impact on participants will be reflected on their own communities, which will begin to be affected by a small, new change of behavior and responsibility by some of its youngest citizens. Therefore, it is It hopes that towns and communities will be a little more affected by a new enthusiasm and will-to-do. At the level of partner organizations, in addition, the impact of this project could lead to new solutions and projects that can "capitalize" the assets acquired and promote other forms of interaction among partners around themes, objectives and common sensibility.The method used will be based on non-formal and experiencial learning, on intercultural dialogue, tolerance, solidarity and social inclusion. As well as on the full interaction, active participation, responsibility and entrepreneurship of the participants.Consequently, the implemented activities will bes: energizers and warm-ups, icebreakings, brainstorming, thematic forums, team building activities, team-games and role-playing games, educational workshops and interactive activities of storytelling, photography and video-making, problem-solving exercises, sports and outdoors, musical performances and intercultural moments.
