After research and discussions the individual answers and statements will be given in different languages, in performances, music, animation and photographs.

Where will your idea take place?

BBacki Monostor, Sombor, Serbia

Why does Europe need your idea?

The project focuses the situation of young people (workshop leaders and participants) in different parts of Europe and opens the space for agreement on common values and the creation of a common vision as well as individuality and tolerance. This is a contribution to the idea of Europe of diversity and unity. With guidance the participants teach each other and connect with each other. The workshops trigger the creativity and potential for innovation of young people. They improve their social and communication skills and find acceptance and endorsement. We want to encourage them to say what they think is needed for work education, the job market, the labor conditions of the future. Knowledge, experience and imagination will come together in creative works.

What is your impact?

We create a space of exchange & creativity and a lasting network of young people in Europe. We want to give the possibility to travel and connect and open up future perspectives. The participants try out and find ways to express and present themselves. They learn facts about other countries, education systems, the job markets. They learn methods to produce artistic pieces which will be published and distribute their messages, ideas, points of view on the issue of "work". They improve their intercultural and language skills, get knowledge and experience through art and informal learning. The camp is a motivation for them to stay or become active in their surroundings, realize ideas, keep contact, go to foreign country for education or work and organize exchange by themselves.
