Erasmus + : KA1 - Youth Exchange - Programme Countries

Place: Romania, Predeal

Activity Dates: 16/03/2017 - 24/03/2017

Project Description: 

With the EU being home to so many different people and the freedom of movement in the EU allowing people to live and work anywhere in the EU we have become truly European countries. Statistically this might be correct but realistically speaking most people living and working in other countries are perceived as intruders or foreigners in other countries and they continue to feel this, so are we truly European countries?

We have become social groups within our society and too often we are excluded from society, we need to bring people together to understand each other in order to end discrimination.

Our project will look at discrimination in all forms, starting with the principals of the fundamental EU rights including mobility and seeing the impact this has on discrimination and then extending our views of the problems of discrimination to all forms of discrimination including gender equality and racism.

Our project hopes to give our young people the opportunity to learn from each other and from their own mistakes so that we can understand each other better and respect each other, so that we can truly be European countries living in harmony. When we can learn to live together as European we will also learn that all people are equal regardless of gender or race, religion and preferences.

Tolerance will allow us to accept each other’s differences and embrace our similarities and accept people for who they are so that as young people we can set the example of overcoming xenophobia and discrimination.

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
