Erasmus + : KA1 - Youth Exchange - Programme Countries
Place: Romania, Predeal
Activity Dates: 16/03/2017 - 24/03/2017
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.
