Young People and Conflict
Start date: Feb 1, 2015,
End date: Sep 30, 2015
The Young People & Conflict is a Youth Mobility project within Key Action 1 . The project will aim to explore and understand conflict within both European settings of Northern Ireland and the Basque Region and its impact upon young people in each community.
The Objectives of this project are to:
1. Explore and challenge prejudice and conflict and explore the impact this has had on the young people and their human rights from the 2 regions
2. Develop and promote skills to increase employment prospects
3. Experience and share cultures and diversity
4. To promote active citizenship of the young people within their own regions and within the EU
It is planned to firstly visit the Basque Region in July and then be hosted in Northern Ireland in August involving the use of media, outdoor education, presentations along with group work to explore Conflict. There will also be cultural visits, music and activities to learn about each other cultures.
It will also explore cultures in both regions and acceptance of other cultures through a bilateral exchange programme. The project will involve 24 disadvantaged young people aged 15 - 17 years old who all have experienced conflict in their own environments. The project will allow them to share and explore their experiences and use this learning for their personal development.
The participants will have gained understanding of being a citizen within the European context and will have gained new skills to increase their employment prospects.
