Erasmus + : KA1 - Youth Exchange - Programme Countries

Place: United Kingdom, London

Activity Dates: 15/01/2018 - 23/01/2018

Project Description:
There is much discrimination in Europe and most of it is based on ignorance and fear of the unknown. Stereotypes are created and this project will allow young people from different countries to learn about each other in order to overcome these common problems. The main objective of the project is to overcome different forms of discrimination through methods of giving the opportunity to young people to learn from each other and to develop friendships.

In order for the EU to be more united and united in diversity, we need to learn about each country, its people, its customs and its traditions and its history. When we know and understand our neighbours and they understand us, we build respect and only then can we start building a united Europe. This project will focus on young people getting to know each other so that they can be the future generations that bring Europe closer together, making it a unified Europe and breaking any borders that are created from ignorance.

The greatest identifier of any country is its culture, and this will be the biggest focus of the project, learning about our own cultures, the roots of our cultures and then being able to share our culture with others. Creating a unified European culture would be counterproductive, as we are all unique, but promoting the diversity of each individual culture and sharing it so that we can embrace the best elements of each culture, and at the same time allow us to respect the differences and diversity of the different countries we will allow our youth to be the building blocks of a closer more unified Europe.

The main objective of the project is to overcome different forms of discrimination through methods of giving the opportunity to young people to learn from each other and to develop friendships. Also exchanging good practices between each other to allow for a stronger approach to combating discrimination and xenophobia in youth. We will cover various fields of discrimination and marginalisation that youth experience today, including gender equality, bullying, various forms of discrimination and we will also review EU policy regarding equality and discrimination.

We will look at active citizenship and how we shape the world we live it, we will look at citizenship and the EU democratic system from the perspective of human rights and how these laws and rights are designed to prevent discrimination and how we can make the difference to stop discrimination starting from home.

Where Do I Belong…………………...

A great question. A question that most of us have asked our self’s, our friend everyone.

Do we have an answer though, is it possible?

Well in Romania during the course of this Youth Exchange we tried and we tried hard. For me personally I kind of know how to answer this question to myself now. And for me the answer is ‘’everywhere’’. 

And why is that because in this amazing project I learn some valuable lessons. Lessons about discriminations lessons about stereotypes. I had the chance to be in the shoes of an immigrant trying to find asylum or in the shoes of a nationalist extremist activist, that gave me the ability to understand stuff to see the world through a different eye and to realize that everything is A MATER OF PERSPECTIVE. And that perspective led me to my answer. 

WDIB was an amazing project for me one of the best I attended or probably the best. The OTI team as always was amazing with the workshops and the OTI Romania team was spot on everything through accommodation (on that lovely small and homey hotel with good food) through general organization of the entire project. An amazing team that was always there to support each and every one of us with all our needs. 

I am really grateful I took part to this magnificent project not only because I get to learn all the stuff I did but because I had the chance to mix and meet lots of new people, but I also had the blessing to make new true friends. Friends that I will cherish for the whole of my life .

Until we meet again all
