You are not alone – Partnership Building Activity

 Poronin, 19-23 January 2008

Our project (cultural exchange) is a direct continuation of a partnership building activity with the same title – You are not alone – carried out in january 2008. There we have set our goals, discussed the details and decided to prepare an exchange. Our 3 partners from EECA coutries come from this event (groups from Belarus, Ukraine and Russian Federation). Additionally, to sustain the balance between EU and non-EU participants, we have invited 2 partners from Romania and Slovakia, whom we met at our previous project carried out in august 2007. Together with 7 members of our association there will be 37 young people taking part in the activities, most of them aged 18-25. Our project will be carried out during 6 working days (8 days including travel) in Poronin, in the polish Tatra mountains, a very culturally rich region. The common priority for the whole year 2008 as well as for our project is the Intercultural Dialogue. We understand this theme very widely so our discussions will be quite complex. However we have set very specific objectives for our activities: to learn more and exchange the knowledge about our countries’ cultures, to learn and discuss how national culture influences the shape of EU and european citizenship and finally to think and exchange our ideas on the role of young people in the above process and ways we can be more active. Therefore we will have discussion meetings, small training with a youth trainer, workshops prepared by participants, cultural evenings with music and cousine of particular countries, outdoor activities and a topic-focused sightseeing trip and various presentations, watching a film, preparing posters, etc. All activities will be prepared by and include all participants, fostering mutual friendships and better understanding of each other. To provide high quality of our project we will have group meeting in our countries with constant internet contact before the start of exchange and during the event we will have group leader meetings every evening, mid-term evaluation and a final continuation/evaluation meeting and activities.
