Before 1989 Europe was divided and in some countries people were oppressed and risked their lives as refugees to the free world.
We like to raise the awareness of young people about the genuine idea of Europe and how important integration is. We produced a documentary where contemporary witnesses tell their personal story and hopes for Europe. We want to go to schools in Germany/Romania and reflect: What is "freedom"? How was divided Europe? What are our perspectives in East and West?
Students (~ 14-19 years) are born in free Europe and might not be aware about achievements and might not appreciate adequately the perspectives. This can lead to a lack of interest when it comes to voting or engagement for democracy. For radical forces it is easier to mislead uninformed young people against the genuine ideas of Europe.
Set-up an creative educational concept. Perform Workshops in schools (2 WS per month, with 25 students each. With our initiative we can reach in one year around 600 (12 month x 2 schools x 25 students) young people and reflect about Freedom, Democracy ... and inspire about the idea of Europe.
1. Finish the training concept "European Competence"
2. Procure Equipment (e.g. HD-Beamer)
3. Perform "Trial run" with Pilot school
4. Rollout - contact teachers and prepare workshops with FinK e.V.
Target group: young students (14-19 y)
Audiences: People in Germany and Romania
(later concept extension to other countries is possible)
Civil engagement and bringing HIStory to school... Discussing personal views with all involved parties... Using multimedia (Film, Music, ...) and put forward own beliefs in Free Europe and it's perspectives ... That all can enable the anchorage of European values to young people and promote democracy.
