Body language as a tool of nonformal education
Mihaela Bordei, School Center for Inclusive Education "Elena Doamna"

Using creativity, action and teamwork we will approach alternative methods of communication using body language as a tool of nonformal education. This can help us to grow together, removing discrimination for people different from us, with special needs, helping for their social integration.
The workshop is about sharing knowledge, skills and attitudes through practical workshops, building a common world, accepting diversity and promoting tolerance to those different from us, improving education for the tomorrow generations, the foundation for a equal start in life for everyone of us.

 

COM’ON Cluj-Napoca – Participatory Budgeting for Youth
Andras Farkas, PONT Group

The project proposed by the PONT Group, in partnership with the SHARE Cluj-Napoca Federation, the City Hall of Cluj-Napoca and the Cluj-Napoca City Council is entitled Participatory Budgeting of Youth in Cluj2015, European Youth Capital. The Participatory Budgeting (PB) aims the inclusion of the citizens in the democratic process of consultation and decision-taking, with the goal of establishing optimal ways of spending (some part of) the public budget. The goal of the project is to conduct a process of participatory budgeting based on the inclusion of the young people; on the base of this process the City Cluj-Napoca will subsidize the implementation of the most agreed on (voted) projects under the EYC 2015. The strategic objective is to create a portfolio of 250 small projects with a total budget of approx. 500.000 RON, projects proposed by the young people, addressed to the local community (especially the peripheral areas of Cluj-Napoca), that contribute to the active participation of the inhabitants in the life of the community, that include the inhabitants in proactive activities, are happening in public and community spaces and assure free access to the inhabitants, without a financial barrier (a ticket).

The results of this project exceeded estimates. Over 250 groups involving 744 young people proposed over 437 initiatives. The workshop will about how this process might be scalable in other European cities. Participants will also work in how to draw up a catchy message to other cities regarding the importance of youth participation and participatory budgeting.

 

EVS4ALL – European Voluntary Service for All
Michael M. Thoss, Allianz Kulturstiftung
James Moon, Volonteurope

This Erasmus+ funded European project aims to take a first step in the implementation of a ‘European Year of Volunteering for Everyone’, as described in "We are Europe! Manifesto for Rebuilding Europe from the Bottom Up" (www.manifest-europa.eu). This pan-European initiative and campaign by the Allianz Cultural Foundation, implemented in cooperation with Volonteurope and Itinéraire International, and coordinated by IKAB-Bildungswerk, brings together 14 partners from France, Germany, Poland, Romania, Spain and the UK, to demand an enlargement of the current and future European volunteering programmes, including EVS. We want to ensure that European mobility and volunteering opportunities become truly inclusive of young people who have fewer opportunities and face different barriers to their real engagement as European citizens.

We are looking to engage with volunteers and professionals on what barriers they have experienced or perceive in cross boarder volunteering for young people. This will then feed into our European recommendation guidelines put to the European Commission on how cross border volunteering can be made more inclusive. We would also like to gather the views of those that have been involved in EVS, on their experiences and learning during the activity, in particular what tools, such as digital learning (and other) they have used and which ones they find most beneficial.

 

EVS challenge: enlarge your cultural diversity awareness!
Ioana Bere, Cluj-Napoca Volunteer Center

Year of the Youth Invasion and EUROPEAN volunteers in YOUTH CAPITAL - two European Voluntary Service (EVS) projects, 8 volunteers from 6 different countries, living and working for 12 months in a 7-th different one: ROMANIA. The focus of our presentation will be on how EVS projects are enlarging cultural diversity awareness both among volunteers and among beneficiaries that they directly work with. Skills and abilities gained in the process of living, working and interacting with people from different cultures and that have different mother tongues will be proved through small improvisation sketches and participants will have their nonverbal communication skills tested.



EU YOUTH AMBASSADORS
Esmé Clifford, Volonteurope
Constantin Dedu, Imago Mundi Association & Volonteurope

Volonteurope’s EU Youth Ambassadors campaign is a response to the need to increase the political engagement, active citizenship and knowledge of European Institutions, processes and EU Citizenship amongst young people in Europe, including those coming from disadvantaged backgrounds. The campaign looks to recruit 13-24 year old young Europeans from across Europe, whereby mediums such as the arts, sports, journalism and digital media will be used to meet the above-mentioned needs and objectives. We hope to create a “movement” of peer-to-peer awareness-raising and encouragement to get involved amongst young people, on local, regional, national and European levels, the latter through active engagement in pan-European events and activities organised by Volonteurope and its partners.

Through EU Youth Ambassadors, young Europeans will have the opportunity to learn by doing and exchanging ideas with other Youth Ambassadors from other countries. The campaign will be built into the context of Volonteurope’s wider work on “Europe for the Common Good” movement, which will also be discussed in the workshop. Young people engaged in these initiatives will benefit from an insight into political campaigning, how decisions are made and how they themselves can have a voice and influence decisions which affect their lives and wellbeing.

 

In Love with Learning

This session is part of the project International Alliance Towards Non-formal Learning Recognition (Erasmus+ strategic partnership)
