Youth Exchange “Bound in Cultures” – Macedonia

Summary of the project:

The goal of this project is to gather young people from different countries and to promote what can be found in common, so they can find similarities among them and feel as one. Currently both EU and non-EU countries are in the mist of a ‘multiple cultural crisis’ due to an influx of migrants, many Muslim, from distressed countries. A lack of understanding for these people’s culture and beliefs mixed with media focus on terror attacks perpetrated by radicalized groups causes fear, apprehension, and in worst case scenarios, violence towards new groups.   The purpose of this project is to quell these fears and anxieties through better understanding of the pillars of mainstream Islam and the tolerance it can embrace.

We believe education about, and interaction with, the Muslim population will combat intolerance in current and future EU countries.  The most relevant topics in this youth exchange are ethics, religion and philosophy.

Venue: Bitola, Macedonia

Planned EXCHANGE dates: 10-19 October 2017

Each partner organization should send 4 participants + 1 leader

Participants need to be between 18 and 30 years old with a willingness to know more about other countries’ culture and traditions

Serviço Voluntário Europeu – Itália 2 meses

Procuramos 3 participantes para o programa de Serviço Voluntário Europeu, com duração de dois meses, as atividades vão decorrer em Cagliari, Sardenha (Itália).

Os voluntários irão colaborar no evento International Summer Week, este evento reúne mais de 200 pessoas de todo o mundo na Sardenha e cria a festa do multiculturalismo, onde as pessoas não se interessam pelas suas diferenças culturais, religiosas, mas sim estão no evento para se reunir e compartilhar momentos de alegria uns com os outros. Os voluntários irão trabalhar no evento na logística, nos social media, na promoção e na implementação, mas o mais importante, terão muita diversão.

Outro dos projetos é o Creating Solidarity, que se concentra na compreensão da diversidade entre os locais, comunidades, para consciencializar o multiculturalismo e a solidariedade. Os voluntários apresentam as suas culturas e compartilham com os habitantes locais, além de disso irão ajudar a organizar, a promover e a implementar eventos culturais para comunidades imigrantes e jovens da Sardenha, para quebrar o gelo e ajudá-los a assimilar e misturar.
