Youth Exchange allowed young people through various activtities based on active participation to discover and become aware of different social and cultural realities, to learn from each other, to develop the entrepreneurial spirit and reinforce their feeling of being European citizens.
Aim of the youth exchange were:
– Raising awareness of common European culture and cultural heritage of Europe among youngsters,
– Building solidarity, understanding and cohesion among them by breaking up national divisions, language barriers and seeking universal values,
– Building skills and capacities of our youngsters, youth leaders and organizations
Adventure Based Learning is methodology focuses on cooperation games, trust building activities and problem solving. We use it in contest to strengthen pro-European attitudes among young people and provide them the most essential information about European Union, it origins, culture, and institutions. Adventure based Learning uses experiential learning (learning by experience) and the excitement of trying something new. In adventure-based learning programmes the trainer challenges a group to achieve a goal, but does not explain how to successfully complete the challenge. Participants must work to find a solution individually and together as a team, and must communicate and learn from each other in order to be successful. Participants begin to recognize the inner resources, strengths, and positive qualities within themselves and within their team. Reflecting and debriefing on the experience or “adventure” afterwards allows them to learn more about both their personal behaviour and contributions as well as the group’s, and relate it back to their everyday lives and routines to create positive change.
There were various teambuilding games and getting-know each others activities, cooperation games, city challenge, graffiti workshop, language animation, EU quiz, treasure hunt, city game, intercultural evenings etc.
