“Europe in Georgia” represents three stage educational project. It intends to identify interested and motivated youth and provide seminars and trainings about the European cultural, social and political values.
4 regional cities of Georgia, Tbilisi, Georgia, Warsaw, Poland
Project has mosaic nature and it aspires to educate young people on Europe in its cultural, social and political dimensions and to involve various methods for it. The main target group of the project are young people from 16 to 25, mainly high school and university students, however, graduate young professionals and others will also have possibility to participate in the project. People in this age tend to be more progressive, freer from stereotypes and dogmas, and open for the new ideas.
Project aims to share and exchange experience and for this purpose we cooperate with dedicated Polish NGO who works in the field of youth. We believe that our ideas and experience can be also transferred and shared to the NGOs in South Caucasus who wish to advocate Europe in their own communities.
We wish to reach:
• Elaboration of the educational program that promotes European values in Georgia;
• Identification of young people who share European values/ideas and their recruitment in organizational activities;
We expect from this project:
As a result of the implementation of the project - seminar manual and methodology for the program of “Europe in Georgia” will be created and tested. That will be also used in the future in order to promote the European values by conducting long and short term programs and projects. During the project, the participants will identify current challenges and problems European countries face in different fields of socio-economic, cultural and humanitarian transformation and compare them to Georgian challenges.
Active phases of the first and second stages of the project consists of seminars, trainings and practical exercises and photo essay. Each of them consists of a didactic method, which will have a lecture/seminar form; interactive method of teaching with theory and the practical exercises; and team work methods.
In addition, training manual "compass”, by Council of Europe, will be also used. The training manual will provide important input in order to make seminars more interactive with variety of role-games and energizers. Also, photo essay takes important role in the project.
Third stage of the project includes study trip in Poland. During the study trip, 3 participants of the project will meet various student and youth organizations in Warsaw.
