Youth Is The Future Of Europe
Start date: May 4, 2015,
End date: Jul 4, 2016
„Youth Is The Future Of Europe" is an EVS-project of the Erasmus+ program for an European volunteer from Luxemburg, who did her project in the FRÖBEL-Waldkindergarten (Forest Kindergarten) in Leipzig (Germany).
The participant in the project was coming to Leipzig for 12 months from May 2015 until the end of April 2016, and was giving her the opportunity to see the development of the kindergarten over the entire year. She was encouraged to take on her own individual projects as well as working within the normal daily routine of the kindergarten. The project was to help the European volunteers, the children, the educators at the kindergarten, the parents and the local community to think about the future of Europe and to work in small steps to develop this future. Here the project title 'Youth Is The Future Of Europe' seems particularly appropriate. Through this project, the children in the receiving institution (the kindergarten) get direct contact with the young volunteer from another country who is here with new ideas and suggestions to aid the development of the children.
In the kindergartens there are many opportunities for the volunteer to contribute artistically and creatively. The Waldkindergarten has a wonderful studio and there are many activities outside in a forest. The kindergarten operates with the partially open concept, which allows within their educational practices and concepts to take on new contributions and suggestions from the volunteer, allowing the volunteer to work together with the experienced staff members to realize these projects.
