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.

Where Do I Belong…………………...

A great question. A question that most of us have asked our self’s, our friend everyone.

Do we have an answer though, is it possible?

Well in Romania during the course of this Youth Exchange we tried and we tried hard. For me personally I kind of know how to answer this question to myself now. And for me the answer is ‘’everywhere’’. 

And why is that because in this amazing project I learn some valuable lessons. Lessons about discriminations lessons about stereotypes. I had the chance to be in the shoes of an immigrant trying to find asylum or in the shoes of a nationalist extremist activist, that gave me the ability to understand stuff to see the world through a different eye and to realize that everything is A MATER OF PERSPECTIVE. And that perspective led me to my answer. 

WDIB was an amazing project for me one of the best I attended or probably the best. The OTI team as always was amazing with the workshops and the OTI Romania team was spot on everything through accommodation (on that lovely small and homey hotel with good food) through general organization of the entire project. An amazing team that was always there to support each and every one of us with all our needs. 

I am really grateful I took part to this magnificent project not only because I get to learn all the stuff I did but because I had the chance to mix and meet lots of new people, but I also had the blessing to make new true friends. Friends that I will cherish for the whole of my life .

Until we meet again all
