Youth Exchange CI PIACE

duminică, 7 octombrie 2018

“CI PIACE” is a 9 days mobility of young people - Youth exchange, organized by ASAP Europe in Fasano, Italy from 19th to 27th of October 2018 that involves 42 young people and youth leaders from Italy, Poland, Macedonia, Greece, Portugal, Romania and Bulgaria. The youth exchange will explore the concepts of citizenship in general and European citizenship in particular and active participation of young people in social, economic and political life. The project tackles the issues of declined trends of social, economic and political engagement of citizens on national and European level, low trust in democratic institutions and representatives, little or no interest and knowledge of citizen’s rights and obligations, partial understanding of work and role of EU institutions and decision-making process in the Union. That’s why the youth exchange will address and raise awareness about all of these issues and will educate, motivate and equip young people with competences to take active part in democratic life and decision-making processes on local, national and European level. The project will also provide and introduce tools on how to be more active citizen, will encourage and equip participants with knowledge and skills to run their own activities on these topics, will foster mutual understanding, solidarity, intercultural learning and dialogue and will promote international cooperation in the youth field.

The project aims to give participants the opportunity to better understand the concepts of citizenship education, European citizenship and active participation and to show them their role as young generation in building better Europe.

REIMBURSEMENT RULES: The Erasmus+ rules stipulate participants to travel using the cheapest means of transport, economy class, direct route without long stopovers. Although participants can plan their travel individually and arrive earlier/depart later, the organisers can only commit to reimburse and organise board and lodging during the mentioned project days. If you plan to travel outside the official project dates (19 – 27 October) you should contact us providing the reasons and buy ticket only if permission granted, otherwise you would not get reimbursed. PLEASE DO NOT BUY ANY TICKETS before consulting the price/route with the organisers (you can only buy tickets once your application has been accepted by ASAP);

VERY IMPORTANT: The reimbursement of travel costs will not be done during the youth exchange, but only when the second part of the project grant will be given to ASAP (this can take up to 5/6 months after the end of the project and depends on Italian National Agency).  
Please note that we receive only a percentage of the project grant, so that part will be fully used to pay your accommodation, food and working materials. You are taking part in a Youth Exchange and the contribution we receive is very little, so we kindly ask you for your understanding and to be prepared to wait for your travel costs.

Reimbursement wil be done only upon presentation of ALL original tickets, receipt/invoices and boarding passes (including return tickets). Documents provided must clearly state date of purchase, route and means of travel, name of the passenger, method of payment and price paid. Participants will be asked to send the originals of all return documents and boarding passes. The organisers will only reimburse travel costs from the partner country to Fasano, Italy up to the limits indicated in the Erasmus+ Programme Guide, based on actual expenditure - original tickets and receipts; please note that amounts below are MAXIMUM amounts, ASAP will reimburse the ACTUAL expenses up to the limits listed below:

If your tickets cost 100 euro, you will get 100 euro as reimbursement. If they exceed the travel grant per country, then participant should pay the difference. Participants are only allowed to travel to/from their partner countries (e.g. Romanian from Romania, Polish from Poland etc.); - Reimbursement will be done in EUR, regardless of the currency indicated on the ticket and receipt/invoice. Any tickets purchased in a local currency other than EUR, will then be converted and calculated according to the exchange rate of the month when the grant agreement for this project will be signed by the Italian NA, as stated in the official European Commission web-site at http://ec.europa.eu/budget/inforeuro/index.cfm?Language=en.

Reimbursement will only be paid to participants who fully attend the duration of the Youth Exchange CI PIACE.

PARTICIPATION FEE: There is a participation fee of 20 euros to be paid in cash by each participant during the youth exchange. This is due to the very high prices of the accommodation and the very low economical support we receive for this kind of activity. Participation fee will be used for the extra products to the Italian traditional evening and for the extra bank costs for the travel reimbursement. 

INSURANCE: Health insurance is not provided and will not be reimbursed by the organisers. All participants are strongly advised to purchase private travel insurance. All EU residents should obtain the free European Health Insurance Cards (EHIC) before the youth exchange. Please note that private health care in Italy is extremely costly.

YE: Is tourism the answer for a better future?

marți, 2 octombrie 2018

ABOUT THE PROJECT
 
At the youth exchange "is tourism the answer for a better future?" youngsters from 5 different countries (Slovenia, Turkey, Croatia, Bulgaria and Romania) will come together
to learn about tourism and the development of our regions from where we are coming from.


Europe still didn't recover from the world financial crisis. The youngsters are still afraid of their future, because the employers are searching for young people that are 23 years old but they should have 20 - 30 years of experience. We all know that this is not possible.


On the other side, young people still don't get the chance to prove themselves to the local community that they are strong enough to manage something new and big.


Tourism is one of the most fastest growing industries in the world. People will always travel, because time of traveling got shorter, traveling got more comfortable and even the whole traveling got cheap and almost everyone can afford it now.


We will explore and learn how can we developed tourism in our home towns where we are coming from. Through the youth exchange we will learn how to turn our ideas into
actions and how to work as a big group of people all together.
The aim is to explore the labour market of our countries and see how young people are living and what are they doing after they finish with education. We will get to know what is tourism, what kind of tourism do we know and we will work a lot as one big team. The aim of our project will be to create new ideas that should help us to improve our regions and places where we are coming from. Through non-formal education we will learn how to turn our ideas into actions. Because of the topic we will also have a one-day excursion to learn about tourism in Pomurje region as a good example.

TRAVEL COSTS & REIMBURSEMENT


IS TOURISM THE ANSWER FOR A BETTER FUTURE? project is implemented with the financial support of the European Union through Erasmus+ program. We will cover

  • To develop personally and professionally 20 voluntary leaders in sport, from 5 countries, by organizing one month of volunteering activity within an experiential sport center in Romania;
  • To implement a creative methodology for promoting sports, physical activity, nutrition and healthy lifestyle in Europe, by organizing 10 creative sport events in different 10 local communities, involving minimum 500 youth of Europe.

Rroma HeArt - first two days

sâmbătă, 18 august 2018

Our organisation, SUPER TINERI (ASIRYS), hosted between 3-14 August 2018, "Rroma HeArt" youth exchange, involving 40 young people from 8 countries. During the 10 days mobility, we had also guests from Moldova and France, and we involved local partners and citizens from 5 villages and 2 cities.

In the first two days of the exchange,  40+ young people from Cyprus, Estonia, Greece, Italy, Slovenia, Spain, Turkey and Romania, got to know each other’s, learnt about the Rroma culture of Târgu Frumos and of the countries involved, worked in national and international groups, experienced Improvisation Theater, made presentations and prepared the plan for the experiential museum of European Rroma. During the evenings, the participants presented their countries, we were impressed by the Turkish dervish dance which was the perfect intro of the coming days!  
We were happy to have with us 6 members of "Youth Alma" Association, one of our good partners from Iaşi. Alexandra, one of the coordinators, helped us to energize the group and later, together with Lică, facilitated the Labirinth Theatre workshop. 

One method we used to get to know the local community, but also to start train the participants to work in multicultural team, was the "treasure hunt" activity called "Discover Rroma HeArt Town". We gave 10 tasks and 2 hours of accomplish them:  

1.    Create your group Rroma song!
2.    Learn a Rroma dance from Rroma locals and prepare to perform it while singing your Gypsy song.
3.    Collect ideas for the Rroma museum we will work next days.
4.    Find 3 interesting stories about Rroma and represent it by an exhibition of 3 relevant photos you made.
5.    Learn 5 Rroma words.
6.    Find out the history of the Rroma in Târgu Frumos.
7.    Draw or make a collage promoting the Experiential Museum of Rroma, from Băiceni.
8.    Make 3 pictures of the most interesting houses of Rroma in Târgu Frumos.
9.    Make a list of 20 beautiful Rroma songs (with links from Youtube) and upload it on the facebook group. 
10.    Gather at least 10 Rroma people, all together, and do a interesting group picture with them. Then do a short video with everybody screaming „Erasmus+”. 

"This Youth Exchange was very different than everything that we have ever experienced (also for those who were at the sixth Erasmus+ mobility), because of the activities that we did. Not only that we learned new things about the topic, but we had the opportunity to experience them, to feel like we have a connection with the things that we learn. Because we talked about Rroma people, we had the chance to meet with them, to feel like them, to live like them, to understand their needs, their lifes, how they live nowadays, how people treat them, and so on. All of these things in a really creative way, and the result of our hard work was an experiental museum which added a lot more feeling at everything that we did because was something that happened because of our activity. "Rroma HeArt" was more than a project, was a way to identify with the people we were learning about, also to discover and rediscover ourselves, to extend our limits and value more everything that we have around us." (Ioana Ursache)

Rroma HeArt is a project funded by Erasmus+RO, with the support of European Union - EU. 











Tineri din 8 ţări vor crea primul muzeu experienţial al culturii rrome din Europa

marți, 31 iulie 2018

De vreo două luni muncim din greu să pregătim proiectul nostru "Rroma HeArt", un schimb de tineri finanţat prin programul Erasmus+, al Uniunii Europene. Proiectul va implica 40 de tineri din 8 ţări: Cipru, Grecia, Slovenia, Italia, Spania, Estonia, Turcia şi România, ce timp de 10 zile vor învăţa nonformal şi vor crea un muzeu experienţial al culturii rrome din Europa. 

De fiecare dată când povestim despre acest proiect, există o categorie care ne spune că e foarte faină ideea, că e uimitor faptul că nimeni nu s-a gândit să facă un astfel de proiect, dar există şi o altă categorie care ne ceartă! De ce ne axăm pe cultura rromă, când în cultura românească sunt atât de multe aspecte frumoase?  Şi începe o listă lungă de argumente, unele putând fi încadrate facil la "hate-speech", ce ar trebui să ne convingă că nu ar fi trebuit să iniţiem un astfel de proiect. 

Însă toate aceste dezbateri din jurul Rroma HeArt, cresc importanţa acestui proiect! Cultura rromă e subestimată, deşi peste 12 milioane de rromi trăiesc de câteva sute de ani în Europa. Elementele frumoase ale culturii rrome sunt umbrite de stereotipuri şi mesaje negative, iar soluţia nu e sigur, mai multă ură.

Rroma HeArt este un proiect cultural non-formal prin care 40 de tineri, din 8 ţări, îşi vor pune mintea la contribuţie pe parcursul a 10 zile şi vor crea un spaţiu necovenţional, unde oricine poate experimenta elemente ale culturii rrome prin muzică, dans, modă, bucătărie, tradiţii, credinţe, legende, meşteşuguri, fotografie, teatru, storytelling. Muzeul Nonformal Rrom va fi amenajat în satul Băiceni, comuna Cucuteni, de către tineri, ce vor folosi resurse materiale limitate, dar resurse creative nelimitate. O caravană, cu 40 de tineri, majoritar nerromi, vor explora trecutul, prezentul şi viitorul culturii rrome europene, livrând un spaţiu artistic, neconvenţional, menit să arate frumuseţea acestei culturi şi să sublinieze importanţa toleranţei şi deschiderii faţă de minorităţi. 

Dacă doriţi să vă implicaţi, tot ce trebuie să faceţi este să creaţi şi să ne trimiteţi un produs reprezentativ al culturii rrome, oricare ar fi acesta: o poveste, un obiect, o legendă, o carte, o fotografie, un cântec, o tradiţie, o listă de cuvinte, un colaj etc. O să-l integrăm în muzeul Rroma HeArt.
