Youth Exchange 2014
23. August – 06. September
Buxton • Liverpool
This e.p.a. European Youth Exchange took place in Liverpool in the North West of the England in the U.K. It brought together 60 young people to discuss and debate under the theme “Hope2cope”, share and care, whilst living in societies of political and democratic deficit, social neglect and financial chaos.
Our young people came from communities with fewer opportunities: an orphanage in Bucharest (Romania), with migrant/refugee backgrounds from Hamburg, Speke in Liverpool (UK), the geographically isolated Siberian regions of Tyumen and Kurgan (Russian Federation) and from Feodosia-Crimea (Ukraine), who faced enormous political and economical challenges.
The methodology and programme was focused around the participants, who presented their cities/projects and during the two weeks, each presented a self designed and organised Workshop on the theme of “Hope2cope”. Each group was given creative freedom for their workshop, and they all presented them in varied ways.
