Description:
As a young and motivated people we would like to get a broader knowledge of the different
opportunities that exist for us and which existence we hadn’t had an idea about.
More and more people benefit from opportunities that Erasmus + is giving, but not
many of us can enjoy such an opportunity, sometimes just because of the lack of proper
knowledge about the options available. If we know more then we can benefit more. This
leads to the idea of a project we are currently working on.
The other aspect is intercultural contact and the need to communicate with colleagues
from abroad. While English and learning foreign languages are becoming essential for the world citizen in both personal and professional aspects, we find it necessary to communicate with
our peers from other parts of Europe. We like the idea of building European connections and having friends around Europe. We are also happy to combat existing stereotypes!
Last but not least we want to be active in our local communities and we want to benefit
from the initiatives of our peers from different countries and find together solutions to
existing challenges and problems in our areas of living
We believe that thanks to youth exchange, while with youth from Poland, Hungary,
Italy and Romania we will be discussing and exchanging ideas, experiences and knowledge about the
different initiatives being taken up in our countries, we would be more encouraged to actively
participate in our local communities’ cause and domino effect there because
of popularizing good practices after the project is finished.

Objectives:
– Sharing knowledge, experience and good practices on different opportunities for
young people, including Erasmus + offering international cooperation and diverse programs
for youth such as youth exchanges, trainings, EVS European Voluntary Service, etc.
– Presenting different ways of being active and involved in our own communities by
comparing existing initiatives in Poland, Hungary, Italy, and Romania with identifying
needs in our local communities and finding concrete solutions for responding to them
– Arising intercultural awareness, improving language skills and combating with stereotypes
by cooperating with participants coming from different countries, having similar ages and
facing similar issues in their everyday life

Themes addressed by the project:
– Knowledge of different opportunities that exist for us
– Intercultural contact
– Community research and be an active community worker.
