Idea pitch

Thinking in an innovative way to brake down iron curtain still existing between Europe and Belarus.

Why does Europe need your idea?

We are part of Europe and surrounded by EU states but in full isolation for the last 25 years.It is not acceptable in the 21 century if we are thinking that Europe is our common home.We have to do something real to implement our ideas because no one will do that except us.We could show a positive example of cooperation and solve the problems we have in Europe in a peacefull and innovative way.

What is your impact?

I wonna to open Europe for the rest of local society at large and maybe republic as well.Everybody could see that cooperation is working and we have much more commonalities than differences .We need next generation who could understand European values and be integrated into Europe but not think in the terms of cold war, as we are doing now.Open Belarus for EU educational bodies to benefit for the years to come ,just to live in peace and respect to each other.

How do you get there?

I would like to select motivated youth leaders , teachers , schoolos who would like to work together on common project with Smorgon and Ruhr schools.After that we could find common decision with partners about the future topic for research.teams will work on research and could present it at the round table discussions in both countries.We could invite politicians to take part in it and ask them directly what they are doing to connect us with Europe.I am gouing to publish video film about the project implementation, write a manual on good practices in international cooperation, innovations in teaching and exploring children and human rights at school and society,leaders could be trained to publish newsletters and photo newspapers dedicated to the project events.
