Start date: May 31, 2016, End date: Dec 30, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The 60 Participants from six Nations (D, CZ, SE, GB, LV, PL ) and young refugees and asylum seekers who are staying at the time in Germany, for seven days intensively deal with the refugee policy in Europe. These are young people who have never attended a European youth encounter. In particular, disadvantaged young people are taken into account with fewer opportunities.Thematically, when youth encounter especially on the topics of "immigration and integration" in the context of current refugee crisis. Based on a participatory and learning-centered approach of the learning process is carried out before, during and after the youth exchange mainly through peer learning. The methodological spectrum ranges ranges from NGOs, panel discussions, on the production of short films and theater scenes to the joint development of a "Marienthal declaration on European refugee policy". In addition, cross-cultural, political and linguistic exchanges of young people is at the center.In the already pre-established Facebook group young people have already drawn up a preliminary program for the Youth Exchange. You also have the opportunity to exchange information and to bring expectations and proposals for the Youth Exchange. The young people are doing to deal not only with the issue of "refugee policies in Europe", but also to exchange about their national borders to other topics. Thus, the young people are planning to meet together, put together with the substantive program sequence and the selected methods established and jointly evaluate the encounter from. After the meeting the young people participate in the dissemination of results and support, together with the representatives of the project partners to build a new "European network for refugee work" with NGOs in their home regions.The young people are supported by the project and the educational group leaders / workers, when required. In addition, the young people acquire new experiences by visiting refugee camps as well as discussing with refugees, German government officials for the refugee work, volunteer actors of the German refugee work, organizers of the Polish refugee work, and politicians and media representatives.The results of the Youth Exchange (eg, jointly prepared by the youth "Marienthal declaration on refugee policy in Europe" and the short film) will be presented at the end of the meeting to the public and made available.The young people will work during the youth encounter not only in multinational small groups, but taking daily meals in multinational groups. Even so the intercultural exchange is encouraged.To deepen this exchange, are also "cultural evenings" held in which the participants of the various nations present their respective culture, their customs, their way of life and their language.The long-term benefit of the youth exchange is in knowledge gained about the refugee policy in Europe, (produce film, write theater scenes, improve foreign languages, etc.) to practical experience and skills among young people and project partners. This greater cooperation will be strengthened and their willingness to also reflect on other European issues and to participate in the construction of Europe.
