Experiencia: intercambio juvenil «Art for the Environment»

Entrada elaborada por Maria Isabel Jimenez Crespo (Marisa) sobre su participación en el intercambio juvenil «Art for the Environment»:

«Del 9 al 15 de noviembre, 6 jóvenes españoles tuvimos la gran oportunidad de participar en el intercambio juvenil “Art for the Environment” en un entorno idóneo y maravilloso de Brno, República Checa. En dicho intercambio aprendimos y profundizamos conocimientos acerca del medio ambiente, a través de la realización de diferentes técnicas artísticas: murales, móviles, maquetas, graffitis ecológicos, reciclaje creativo, juegos… Durante esa semana convivimos con participantes de Portugal, Inglaterra, República Checa y Albania, que también formaban parte del intercambio.

Personalmente, ha sido una semana muy enriquecedora, tanto a nivel personal como profesional. Ya que he tenido la suerte de convivir con personas de diferentes culturas e idiomas y poder compartir con ellos a través del arte aspectos medio ambientales, desde la pérdida de biodiversidad, reducción del consumo

Me llevo en la mochila una experiencia increíble, cargada de nuevos conocimientos, recuerdos imborrables, y el haber podido conocer a nuevas personas, que hace que recomiende a todo el mundo esta experiencia y que me quede encantada y con muchas ganas de repetir.»

Youth Exchange «Art for the Environment» – Call for participants

street-art-nature-girl-ivy-hairYouth Exchange «Art for the Environment»
When: 9-15 November 2015
Where: Kapraluv Mlyn, Ochoz u Brna, Czech Republic

The Youth Exchange:

This Youth Exchange is about using art and creative ideas for environmental projects. It will bring young people together to learn from each other by exchanging skills, knowledge and experiences in a non-formal setting. During the youth exchange the participants will be responsible for facilitating workshops and supporting each other. Although they will share enthusiasm for sustainable lifestyles and protecting the planet, their views may be challenged in an intercultural setting where they learn new things.

Aims and objectives:

The aim of the youth exchange is to provide a space for participants to share and develop their creative skills in order to create environmental projects to support their organisations and communities.

Objectives:

– Develop participants’ creative and communication skills to support their personal and professional development;
– Provide a space for intercultural exchange by sharing arts and music from different cultures;
– Explore creative ways to raise awareness and understanding of environmental issues in local communities around Europe;
Connect participants to their local communities and to each other.

Financial conditions and travel costs:

The Youth Exchange will be implemented in the frame of the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission. The accommodation, food, visa fees and materials will be covered fully by the grant. Insurance is obligatory and should be arranged and covered by each participant (the European Heatlh Insurance Card from the Spanish Social Security is sufficient to this effect).

According to rules of the Erasmus+ Programme, the travel expenses will be covered up to 170 EUR per person. Travel costs will be reimbursed to all participants after submitting necessary travel documents (original tickets/invoices + boarding passes) and after filling in the form in the Mobility tool.

You will be required to contribute to Biodiversa with 20 EUR towards the participant’s management costs.
