Περισσότερα για την ανταλλαγή νέων
FROM Thursday 20th of April (ARRIVAL DAY)
TO Thursday 29th of April (DEPARTURE DAY)
VENUE: Gué Bernisson, 102 rue de l’Esterel, 72100 LE MANS
Background of the project:
A right is a claim which is justified. Human Rights, however, are “super claims” with a difference; they are not depending on promises or guarantees by another person. The right to live of someone doesn’t depend on the promises of someone else not to kill him or her: his/her life may depend on it but not his/her right to live. The right to live of this person depends only on one thing: his status of human being.
Having a look on our own personal stories, walking in the street, reading or watching the news, exchanging with our close people, meeting new persons … there are so many moments and spaces where each of us have to face situations that we find not fair, not nice, not acceptable.
On the 10th of December 1948, the General Assembly adopted The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), which was drawn up by the UN Commission on Human Rights.
Human rights exist for all of us. So how can we make use of them? It is clear that their existence is not enough to put an end to human rights violations, since we all know that these are committed every day, in every part of the globe. So can they really make a difference? How can we use them?
Could we now have a look on how it is today in our countries? When we exchange with the youth of our countries, most of them feel that their acting power is decreasing. They know what they want but feel lost in the “what to do now?”.
One of our main goals is to support the youth in developing their autonomy, emancipation and power of action in order to be fully active in the society they are living in. We want them to be able to have a look on what is around, to focus on what is fine and what is not acceptable. And of course to start thinking and acting on what they want to change. For this exchange, we’ll use the focus on Human Rights as a tool for the Youth to be the change they want to see in the world.
If we want to organize this youth exchange, it is because we want to give to the Youth the possibility to have a look on what is happening in every country represented. We would like them to explore the diversity, the different background that each country has and to exchange about it.
Objectives of the Training:
- To promote Human Rights (HR) among young people and their role as citizens
- To support Young people who wish to have a more important acting-power
- To give the possibility to the Youth to experiment real actions and to reflect on it
- To support young people to understand that they actually have an acting power in the world they live in
- To understand the role of human rights respect in the process of overcoming intolerance and extremism, particularly promoting non-discriminatory approach
- To help young people to reflect on their own stories Develop tools which can be used by the participants back home in their organizations/communities
BE-HUMAN TOOLKIT: We will realize an Online and Offline Toolkit, which will be widely communicated to the participants and sending organizations. It will also be given to our local partners and every organizations or individuals for who the toolkit can be relevant.
The main part of it will be done during the second phase of the exchange. It will collect all ideas from participants which can be used to have a more fair society, respecting the Human Rights in our everyday-life.
It will also contain pictures, draws and feedbacks, collected during the experimentation of the actions (public actions, video, exhibition…)
FACEBOOK PAGE: We will also create a Facebook page only for the project to allow the participant to get to know each other before the exchange and stay in touch after. It will contribute to enlarge their network and maybe to have more possibilities of activities. DAILY REPORT: A summary of each day will be realized by a team of 2 people in order to have a global look on the project at the end.
The methodology (non-formal education, storytelling, discussions) and the structure of the exchange will encourage an active involvement of each participant in order to develop competences and new tools for a personal and social development. Non-formal education tools will be used to create a friendly and attentive atmosphere, considering each participant in his or her diversity, personality and culture, so that each person can feel free to express him(her)self, share his or her experiences, teach and learn from the others.
Expression workshops will permit to the youngsters to discover new ways of expression, encouraging their creativity and ability to create collectively, and to gain in self-confidence.
