Young People, Raise Your Voice – Europe Can Hear You!
This CPM & e.p.a. International Youth Exchange brought together 60 young people from Lisbon (PT) Hamburg (DE), Liverpool (UK), Ljubljana (SI), Málaga (ES), Bratislava (SK) and Palermo (IT) from the 18th of July – 1st of August 2013 in Slovenia.
We arrived in Bohinjsko Jezero, visited Ljubljana, stayed in the 2013’s “European Youth Capital” Maribor and finally spent some days in Portorož at the Adriatic Sea.
Over 14 days all of the young people presented their projects and communities, learned about life in Slovenia, presented their prepared workshops on the theme “Young people, raise your voice – Europe can hear you!”, shared intercultural insights from their countries and communities, participated in intercultural evenings and self cooked meals, visited places of historical and cultural interest, organised public actions e.g. a play day, a recycled material fashion show, and enjoyed social interaction with young people from many different nationalities/ethnic backgrounds.
Furthermore, the programme which we discussed during our advanced planning visit from the 11th – 14th of May in Ljubljana – was based on daily plenary meetings with playful energizers, workshops on the theme (mainly prepared by the participating groups), small group discussions, meetings with youth initiatives, local projects and celebrating intercultural community activities, mid way evaluation, final evaluation, comments, looking forward to planning future networking.
