Europe for you

EU4U promotes the value of belonging to an informed, tolerant, responsible and transparent European society, EU projects and programs, and creating positive social change in the community through critical reflection and proactive engagement

What were we up to

Non formal and interactive approach enabled participants to learn about more serious and “heavier” topics while having fun at the same time. They participated and communicated more openly and eagerly about issues at hand and their personal problems and felt motivated and confident in sharing opinions.

The activities within the project addressed main topics – media literacy and European citizenship and the participants had the freedom to moderate workshops which led to inspiring and diverse results each day of the exchange.

We witnessed a lot of compassion, courage and understanding between youngsters that met each other for the first time on the exchange, and it reflected on their work during the workshops. What should their role as active citizens be in promoting diversity and creating cohesive and inclusive society, how to critically think and share opinions and ideas? These are just some of the questions we tried to answer.

Using different methods such as interviews, play, treasure hunt, filming and (one that we used several times and had the biggest impact) role playing. Whether to express our ideas with a funny note or to put ourselves in other people’s shoes and try to imagine and understand their position concerning social, financial, physical and other disadvantages.

SESSION LAB

The set of activities which encourage reflection on the specific objectives of the project; active citizenship, strengthening of youth initiatives, promoting diversity and shared values, greater intercultural awareness, respect for human rights, acquiring knowledge about the possibilities of co-operation at European level, motivating and fostering creation of future projects within the Erasmus + program. 

History timeline

We started with a History timeline which gave us the opportunity to look back in time and find events that connect our countries in the field of science and discoveries, wars and tensions, sports, economy etc.



2050 and my place

Where would you like to live in 2050? How would you like to live and what would you like to do? Which country will have the most powerful economy? What will cause the biggest conflicts? How will people earn a living? What kinds of stories will we tell? How will we get information? What will cities be like? What will our borders be like?

We shared our answers for these questions and more!

LIVE ACTION ROLE PLAY

An outdoor media workshop that involves live role-playing.

In order to be able to ask questions and take a stand on media messages, to understand the basic principles of the functioning of the media and the ways it affect us, the participants were able to experience being a part of a story, instead of being just the observer. The participants delivered performances about subjects dealing with physical disadvantages and cultural diversities.
