Caucasus Youth Nexus
''Multi-Cultural Space'' where youth can realize their ideas. Small library with readings about inter-cultural issues. This ''Space'' will be equipped with proper technical means(Projector, marker boards etc) Simultaneously we organize various events: intercultural evenings, dialogues, round tables. This space will be unique, our organization has over 500 international students from Europe Africa Asia Latin America involved in our activities, thus it will be real multi-cultural heaven for youth
One of the most challenging issues regarding the subject is that In Georgia, Tbilisi there is no space for youth where they can realize their ideas or initiatives, where they can learn different cultures by reading books, meeting with people representing different cultural backgrounds. When people do not know something they are always afraid of it. Our challenge is to inspire youth from Georgia and Europe to learn more about other cultures, become more tolerant and aware of inter-cultural issues
Our aim is to create space where youth with different cultural, religious, ethnic and other backgrounds can implement their innovative and inter-cultural activities together. Increasing awareness of youth about tolerance, creating more peaceful and tolerant Europe. To increase level of integration and inclusion of young people with fewer opportunities, internally displaced young, international students, ethnic minorities. To increase integration level of Georgia towards European Union
If our idea is funded we establish Multi Cultural Space, we have experienced organization members who attended plenty of EU related young meetings, where they obtained innovative and unique methodologies about youth work, thus using these valuable experience and knowledge will be translated into more active youth. Within this space youth can implement their ideas, meet other young people from different parts of the world, read interesting reading materials, thus enriching their knowledge about inter-cultural issues. By activities in this space organized by our organization will promote active citizenship, tolerant society, integrated Europe, inclusion of youth with fewer opportunities. This space will play valuable role in our country and in Europe for young people.
Our main beneficiaries are: European, Asian, African, Latin American and Georgian young people, most of them are students, others are internally displaced persons, migrants, ethnic minorities, young people with fewer opportunities. We strongly believe that inclusion of above mentioned groups into society and teach them inter-cultural affairs will lead us to better civil society, more integration of Georgian society towards Europe, we strongly believe that Georgian and European ways are intertwin
According to our idea there will be a special space two or three rooms, where young people can implement their own initiatives. The most prominent difference between our idea and other ideas is that in this space European, African, Asian and Latin American cultures will merge. Young people can actually meet their stereotypes, prejudices, there is no such a place in Georgia where youth from four continents of the world can meet together and discuss various interesting topics for them
Funding requested from Advocate Europe
Major expenses would be a money for renting a space, two or three rooms where youth can gather and implement their own initiatives, attend various workshops, trainings etc. In this space we set up small library with reading materials, additionally working materials will be needed: papers, markers, boards, few personal computers. Another major expanses would be salaries of those three responsible persons for the multi-cultural space. Finally expanses would cover furniture, computers, books.
