Erasmus+: KA1 - Mobility of Youth Workers - Programme Countries

Place: United Kingdom

Dates: 08/02/2016 - 16/02/2016

Being an EU citizen entitles us to many basic human rights and this forms part of the greatest unity within the EU, upholding these human rights in each member country. This training course will explore these human rights with emphasis on how they are perceived by youth and how we can explore more ways to make sure that our youth understand these rights, fight for them and make sure they are upheld in our communities and in the EU.

The fact that we will still have discrimination, gender inequality and abuse of these human rights in the EU is reason enough to create greater awareness of these rights, especially to young people who might not know these rights or are subject to inequalities in their communities.

This training course will evaluate human rights from the perspective of youth and develop methodologies to be implemented in the partner communities to allow for young people to become more aware of their rights and to understand them better. We will specifically look at issues discrimination, gender equality and equality in the workplace. These are the issues we find show the greatest floors with regard to the implementation of these rights.

By focusing on areas we know show inequalities in many communities and also learning of new areas where human rights are neglected we can work together to expose these inequalities and also develop methods to overcome these problems with cooperation and understanding. We will examine human behaviour in different environments, even our own behaviours that could cause discrimination, stereotypes and xenophobia. We will analyse the reasons for these behaviours and develop methods to help more people identify them and remedy them.

We will give young people the tools to understand their human rights, the knowledge to evaluate their own behaviours and allow for people to be more tolerant of each other and to expect and respect the human rights of people in the EU and the world.

Testimonials

Thank's to the Youth Exchange „Where do i Belong?” organized in Romania, in a wonderful area, named Predeal, i would like to think that i just found out where my soul and heart feels the best. 

In the first days were more relaxed and had enough space and opportunities to get to know each other and to accommodate.

So we took baby steps at first but I feel like we learned how to communicate better with people from other cultures (develop our social skills) and the most important aspect is that we were all the time encouraged to make friends through cooperation.

Personally i feel that there was not a single person with who i didn't interact with or had a dynamic activity with. 

I had the opportunity as well to organize a first workshop regarding the asylum seekers procedure from Romania together with Mihaela which decreased my fear for public speaking and also helped me to reach full potential when i want to transmit an idea in front of a numerous people.

Each activity that we had (name games, role play, creating a video, a magazine, a song about our experience during this days, building a country together, migrating to another cultures and become minority, crocodile game, game of thrones, etc) had a moral story behind, a problem that people are facing in different situations. 

This activities helped us to synchronize as a group, to realize all the barriers that a migrant, a refugee for example needs to go through, or maybe how all the stereotypes regarding genders affects our daily life without even recognize them. 

After all, I am pleased to say that this project has been really useful to share our experience, to overcome our fears, to learn to work as a one mind group, to connect everybody with everybody. Even the hosting place was amazing and the staff has been delighted and implicated.  

I am taking a picture in my memory palace to be sure that i will never forget this experience and the beautiful people which actually made this happen.

Thank you, my friends!
