Start date: May 1, 2015, End date: Dec 31, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

From the 20th to the 29th of July 2015, the Association for the Young person’s Intercommunality (France); Viimsi Municipality (Estonia) and the Hair Redivivus Buzau Association (Romania) will organize a European exchange week that will bring around thirty 16 to 18-year-old teenagers together. This event will take place in a country lodge named « Gîte du Nid Douillet », located in Poncins. These teenagers coming from Estonia; Romania and France will have 10 days to imagine and create a music video about European citizenship. This week will be composed of training sessions; daily life management; working groups revolving around theatre; video and music. We will mainly base these activities on active methods, so that everyone can take ownership of this project and be a real active participant. Here are the objectives we would like to achieve through this project: Priority goal: - Encouraging and focusing debates about Citizenship. - Sharing an « international » reflection (encouraging the emergence of points of view and innovating methods.) - Contributing to the development of a feeling of belonging in the European Union. - Allowing the participants to be more / better « engaged » about citizenship issues, thanks to the fact that they will have felt legitimated in the right of expressing and presenting their comments on social realities. - Encouraging the teenagers’ expression. - Allowing them to discover and build themselves through the meeting with other teenagers / to develop their ability to empathize / to reduce the “mental distances” (ex: actually, Romania is next door! Estonian culture enriches me!) / Encouraging mobility. - Fighting racism and discriminations by the meeting and discovery of other people. Secondary goal: - Allowing the young participants to develop their creativity (as well as their skills) and to discover the use of a media (music video) to deliver a message. - Allowing teenagers to live in community. - Allowing the young people to use and master communication tools (music; theatre; new technologies; and so on). - Cultivating partnerships between European structures and, in a way, contributing to the European construction. (“Europe will not be made all at once, or according to one single plan: rather it will be formed by taking concrete measures which bring about real solidarity”).
