“Speech Less – Act more”

Lommel and Brussels, Belgium

“Speech Less – Act more”gave young people an opportunity to meet each other across borders in Lommel, Belgium, to discuss personal, cultural and international issues related to human rights, more, in particular, the freedom of speech.
From August 19 to 27, 30 young people have visited the German War Grave cemetery in Lommel, Belgium for one constructive week filled with workshops and diverse activities.

 

The young participants demonstrated how friendship can bring different cultures together and to help the young generation and the European community in facing the conflicts of the past in maintaining peace for the future. The aims of this project involved young people with fewer opportunities, because our experience is to bring youngsters from different social, economic and cultural background together.

Young Migrant Voices: a training course for boosting participation of young migrants in decision-making processes at a local level 

Odiliapeel, The Netherlands

The training was a space for the development of competences, dialogue and sharing of experiences among 26 youth workers, local authorities/municipal officers responsible for youth and youth leaders working with young migrants and youth with a migrant background.
Named and shamed throughout political debates and electoral campaigns, the millions of immigrants living all over Europe are completely excluded from the political discourse, hearing themselves called in the news but without any open avenues to respond and express their opinion, becoming the mere subject of the conversation, not the participants. Similarly, young people are excluded from social and civic life reminded us of the grave risks of disengagement and the marginalisation of youth as the way it reacts can dangerously reach up to violent radicalisation.

Reinforce your professional future

Madrid, Spain

Empowering young people through this process leads to increased employability. ‘Selling yourself’ is an often heard expression. But if you know yourself very well and you know what’s motivating you, then you’re closer to your personal core, and then you follow your own strong instinct instead of ‘selling yourself’. Our target group for the training was individuals who work with young people. We will support these participants to explore their own identity and by doing so, they will gain a greater appreciation of their full potential. Ultimately our aim for the participants was to be in a position to transfer their learning to their work with young people and to enable them to support their own young people through this process. Overall aim The aim was to enable participants to learn themselves better and this self-knowledge will serve them better in finding a job.

Human Rights – Then And Now

The second activity of the project “Human Rights – Then and Now” co-funded by Europe for Citizens – Strand: European Remembrance was held in Prilep.
Through debates and workshops we improved the new ideas for the social inclusion of marginalised people in the EU, the process of elaboration of the Union with understanding, promoting the understanding, exchanging of things equally and morally in terms of expression and solidarity, such as educational development of communication skills, discussing perception and in groups between citizens valuing differences, and promoting tolerance.
