What is the project about?

This project was born from the observation and documentation of a series of needs in

the European Youth. Two fundamental problems have been observed:

-          Ignorance and apathy of young people towards the European reality. Young Europeans have been receptive to their participation in activities that promote European values and their Union’s knowledge. However, they do not find channels where they can find out about them.

-          Growth of the European feeling and connection between European institutions and the youth. Young people from the four partner countries have a special disconnect with the feeling of belonging to the Union.

Under these premises, the main issue to be addressed by youth workers in Europe is the accessibility to the Erasmus+ program and to increase their knowledge about opportunities for young people and the recognition of European values and European feeling. How to go from a little-known European Union to a union of values where young people feel integrated and represented?




Objectives:

In this way, our objectives are:

1.    To connect the project participants with the European Union institutions and the Erasmus+ program.

2.    To promote common values, multiculturalism and inclusion in the project participants.

3.    To promote active citizenship and European awareness through the exchange of ideas, knowledge and tools.

4.    To promote new skills in the young participants such as active listening and citizen participation.

5.    To promote in young people new forms of growth and personal development.

6.    To develop an "Opportunities Guide for Young Europeans" about the opportunities that Europe offers and to promote the Erasmus+ program.

7.    To promote linguistic exchange, ecological awareness and gender equality in young people.


Accomodation:

The Youth Exchange will take place in a cottage in Fuente de Piedra, a town in the province of Malaga, part of the autonomous community of Andalusia in southern Spain. The municipality is located approximately 19 km from Antequera and 73 km from the provincial capital of Malaga.



The small town is based in a dry basin amongst the Southern Spanish mountains and is most well known for the local “Laguna de Fuente de Piedra”, home to one of the largest populations of flamingos in Europe. This is represented in the town by the summer celebration of the festival of ringing the Flamingo.

Ice breakers, Energizers, Presentation of the Erasmus+, Youth pass certificate, Debates, Role play, Rising public awareness campaign, Presentation of National practices, Simulation, Cultural visit, Practical visit, Video creation – Instagram Reals, and dissemination materials for promotion, Follow Up, Dissemination activities, Reflection and Intercultural night.
