Short description of the project

The goals of the project are: 1) Participants will learn about the Human Rights and their violations in the EU.
2) Participants will learn how to promote the human rights and how to live their life in accordance to the Human Rights.
3) Participants will learn how to use theatre to express the Human Rights.
4) Participant will make film about the theatre and spread it in their local community.
5) Participants will reflect the learning methods and disseminate it in their organisations.
Project will have a learning part, learning more about the human rights, discrimination and racism by meeting people, whose faced violation of human rights in their lives or work in the institutions for combating discrimination, to make simulation games and to create platform for debates about this issue. Second part of the project we will use to use the emotions and the knowledge to express the stories in the theatre and film.

Project consists of 8 partners. Each partner will be joining us with 7 participants (6 young participants and 1 leader).

Results of the project are THEATRE PERFORMANCE based on the learning of the first few days and FILM of the theatre performances to be uploaded to YouTube channel and promoted online by all partners as well as to make a premiere in their local organisations.


Since one of the aims of the project is to introduce participants with the Youthpass certificate, we plan to define learning outcomes through the 8 key competences of Lifelong learning.
Communication in mother tongue: Each participating organisation will organise debate on the human rights in the preparation. We believe participants will be expressing ideas and opinions which they haven`t expressed before. In the debate of the preparation participants will learn how to share their opinions in the respectful way and how to listen actively, because they will be expected to give response.
Communication in foreign languages: The official language of the youth exchange is English. Some of the participant will experience international youth exchange for the first time. Since there will be daily international cooperation we can assume that participants will learn some new expressions outside the English language as well. We hope participants acquire self-confidence in speaking foreign language, especially because there will be more partners which will give them perfect opportunities to learn many new languages and to learn about the diversity of the EU.
Mathematical competence and basic competences in science and technology: Participants will learn how to work together also on the organising the kitchen. They will be in charge of the cleaning the kitchen after every meal. That will give them new competence in solving problems. Another activity with potential learning impact is the research about the human rights. They will learn how to do the date research and evaluating data.
Digital competence: One of the results of the project is making film of the theatre performance. Participants how to set the cameras and how to edit and how to make post production. Learning to learn Participants will be involved in daily reflection which will help them learn about the learning process and their own abilities to understand and learn (do they prefer international learning field or do they prefer the national environment? Do they like the group interaction or do they prefer individual reflection?). They will learn how to set aims for one-self, while being a part of team and during the working process. The evaluation of the project will also help participants to evaluate what they have learnt, how will they be able to use that in their future lives and with knowledge from before did they use in this project.
Social and civic competences: Working and living in the multicultural environment will give participants possibilities to learn the values of the European citizenship such as tolerance and inclusion. Working with participants with fewer opportunities will enhance their feeling of tolerance and empathy each person should develop to be effective member of society. Participants will be working in the teams and learn how to solve problems, how to actively listen, hot to understand the process of cooperation. Doing research and having debates on the civil activities, participants will learn about the political background, the system of the country, they will find their place in the society and will learn that democracy doesn`t mean just rights, but also responsibility to address the errors in the democracy. Sense of initiative and entrepreneurship Our project is set for everyone to be an active part in it. All participants and leaders will be working as a big team, so everyone can learn the importance of the team work and co-dependence and responsibilities for the common project. Participants will also be creative in executing their project activities and the results of the project.
Cultural awareness and expression: Our project offers possibilities for everyone to learn and reflect more about their own culture as well as the cultures of other participants. The intercultural events will be done specifically for the participants of the youth exchange and will produce the learning possibilities for cultural and political background, new traditions and values. This project will offer a lot of possibilities for expression. Participants will be able to express their thoughts and feelings thorough the theatre performance.

The accommodation for the participants and leaders will be arranged in the International Jugend projktehaus (IJP), which has nine dormitories (6-8 bed room) and three single rooms. Participants will be allocated to the room before they come, so we maintain the international rooms and we separate girls from boys. Participants will use three joint bathrooms. They don`t need to bring beddings (sheets and covers), but they should bring their own towels.

The IJP has its own chef and guarantees a full board throughout the implementation period. Breakfasts will be served every day from 8.00 till 9.00, lunches from 12.30 till 13.30 and dinners from 18.30 till 19.30. There will be coffee breaks during the morning session and the during the afternoon session. We do have a chef, but the cleaning of the dishes after every meal will be done by participants of the youth exchange. In case of additional hunger, there is a REWE store opened every day (except Sundays) till 24.00 just 10 minutes away from our house. There is also a doctor, a pharmacy and a bank in the same building. The nearest Western Uni on is at the main Post office in the Central Train station (25 minutes’ walk). The centre of the town is 25 minutes’ walk from our premise. We will arrange the accident and liability insurance for all participants, but make sure you arrange your own health insurance.

ACTIVITIES Activities will be held in all three working rooms of the building and/or the big meadow outside the premise. These rooms are free to use during the whole time, unless some other groups are using it during the youth exchange.

RULES There is strict no underage drinking and no smoking policy not only in the house, but also in Germany. We want our youth exchange also to be alcohol free youth exchange, because of the rules of the programme and because there are some minors always participating in the youth exchange. Our house is situated directly in the settlement, surrounded with other inhabitants. We have an agreement with them not to make any noise outside the house after 22.00.
