27. september - 5. oktoober toimub Agrose külas, Küprosel noortevahetus, mille teemaks on kultuuriline mitmekesisus. Kandideerima on oodatud 18-25 aastased noored, kellele teema huvi pakub. Eesti noortele on 5 kohta (grupijuht vanusepiiranguta). Kohapeal on kaetud kõik kulud programmi Euroopa Noored poolt (tasuta majutus, toit, kohapealne tegevus), ise tuleb alguses osta ära lennukipiletid, millest 70 % saab tagasi kohapeal peale noortevahetuse lõppu. Hetkel on tasuvam lennata Riiast, piletid on ca 400 €, seega omakulu on umbes 120 €. Lennujaamade valikul tuleb arvestada, et ainsad mõeldavad lennujaamad on Larnaka ja Pafos (Nicosia on buffer-zone ja sinna lennates te riiki siseneda ei saa). Küprose poolsed korraldajad on seadnud projektile osalemistasu 30€, mis arvestatakse tagasimaksest maha.
The main objectives of this project are to raise awareness of one’s own identity and culture and to cross borders to other traditions, languages and mentalities by involving actively with groups from other countries. One important part will furthermore be the addressing of prejudice in all kinds of situations and how to fight it.
Through activities including group work, outdoor activities, interactive lectures, quizzes, games and workshops, the participants will find out more about the factors that may separate us (like nationality, mentality, sexual orientation, background, etc.) and learn how to benefit from this diversity instead of seeing them as obstacles. By getting in touch with the other participants, they will broaden their horizons and improve mutual understanding within Europe.
Given the importance of making people realize that we are all members of a large family called Europe, we intend to contribute to making young people aware of their European citizenship. Basic purpose of our project is to promote cultural diversity by developping the intercultural learning. We aim to understand the lifestyle and social backround of each country by looking into the problems and the way of life of youngsters in the Mediterranean EU Countries. The project seeks the diversity of ideas, opinions, ethical awareness, and cultural differences of the participants in a unique framework of experience and activities. We shall look for similarities and differences between us. We also aim to familiarise ourselves with each other’s culture, to learn about the educational system in these countries and acquire new experiences and cultural knowledge. We are very interested to get to know how young people spend their leisure time. Our activities shall include seminars and working groups related to art, culture and education. Those activities involve discussions, workshops, lectures and evaluation in order to create a strong interaction between the youngsters of the participant countries.
