The World Somehow will take place in Cikolasziget, Hungary between 24th of August and 1st of September including the travelling days. It will involve 5 participants and 1 leader from each country: Czech Republic, Malta, Greece, Portugal, Estonia and Hungary. The target group is European youth between the age of 18-25 who are interested in the main topic of the exchange, which is nature protection, the importance of selective waste collecting, health and sports. This exchange is highly recommended for those who want to know more about artistic acts and who are trying to keep their life and their nature healthy.
Participants will get to know how important is nature and its protection in our lives and they will get to know why it is important to keep it clean. They will learn many creative ways for recycling and they will be taught how to make their surroundings friendlier with creative „up-cycled” materials. They will also learn how to make other kinds of equipment, such as musical instruments and costumes which they can use for their performances. Participants will get to know some great technics for doing performances and protests which can help them understand the view of the many Green Peace demonstrators. The participants will get an opportunity to discuss their own thoughts and opinion about the topic through the methods and techniques of non-formal education and through interactive activities.
We will have many creative workshops like photo, movie and theatre workshops, where participants will need to come up with their own ‘Green’ idea and realize it on their own or in little groups. We will have painting games, musical workshops and many more.
During this project we will get to know one another and ourselves better and will motivate others to be active part of the European society and act more actively. Through these days we will experience intercultural learning, such as national situations in different countries and national evenings. We will gain new competence and develop the existing ones as well.
We would like to interview youngsters and adults about the Hungarian situation through a survey which will be created on the exchange focusing on the most important questions according to the participants. We also would like to share the results of the survey and of the whole project with those who are not involved in it by using public manifestation.
Professional SALTO trainers will help out during the project along with the many participating members who already know a lot about this topic and our used methods.
