Noutăţi de la kick-of-meeting în Sofia, Bulgaria

Sunday, February 3, 2019

În perioada 26-28 februarie 2019, am participat la prima întâlnire din cadrul proiectului KA2: "Gender out of the box". Întâlnirea, organizată în Sofia, a reunit 9 lideri/reprezentanţi de organizaţii din Albania, Macedonia, Grecia, Bulgaria, Italia, Spania, Kosovo, Serbia şi România, care şi-au prezentat organizaţiile, au planificat, au discutat, au stabilit activităţile locale şi au definit câteva idei de logo pentru proiect. 

Pe scurt, activităţile care se vor desfăşura în perioada următoare, sunt:

  • Seminar în Durres, Albania, în perioada 19-26 martie 2019, pentru 3 coordonatori şi lucrători de tineret cu experienţă în educaţie non-formală;
  • Training în Stip, Macedonia, în perioada 2-10 mai 2019, pentru 3 lucrători de tineret;
  • Activitate locală. Organizaţia noastră va realiza un atelier valorificând metodele învăţate în cele două mobilităţi, cu mai multe clase de elevi de la Liceul Tehnologic "Petru Rareş". Va urma un concurs între clase, ce va consta în realizarea unui foto-reportaj/video/colaj, pe tema egalităţii de gen, iar în funcţie de numărul de vizualizări şi reacţii, clasa câştigătoare va participa la un team-building gratuit într-o locaţie aleasă de aceştia, primind tricouri şi agende personalizate.
  • Seminar de evaluare în Durres, Albania, în perioada 9-15 octombrie, la care vor participa 3 dintre participanţii la mobilităţile anterioare.




10 liceeni norvegieni caută gazde în Tîrgu Frumos

În perioada 30 martie - 14 aprilie 2019, Asociaţia Super Tineri (ASIRYS) va găzdui 10 liceeni norvegieni (17-19 ani) prin Programul Erasmus+. Elevii vor desfăşura activităţi de voluntariat în şcolile din Tîrgu Frumos şi satele limitrofe.

Căutăm 5 familii gazdă, din Tîrgu Frumos sau satele din apropiere, ce doresc să interacţioneze şi să găzduiască tineri norvegieni, pentru o perioadă de două săptămâni. 

Prin găzduirea în sânul unei familii, ne dorim ca tinerii să experimenteze viaţa de zi cu zi în România, să descopere cultura şi specificul regiunii noastre. 

Pentru cei interesaţi, precizăm următoarele:

- perioada de găzduire e de două săptămâni (30 martie - 14 aprilie 2019), programul de activităţi al liceenilor în cadrul asociaţiei se va desfăşura între orele 10:00 - 17:00, de luni până vineri;
- tinerii au optat pentru a sta câte doi în familie, astfel că e nevoie ca în cameră să fie un pat dublu, paturi suprapuse sau o altă variantă;
- familia gazdă va primi un grant în valoare de 500 de lei pentru a acoperi utilităţile şi alte cheltuieli de găzduire; 
- elevii vor primi o alocaţie de masă, astfel că e important să aibă acces la bucătărie, pentru a-şi găti;
- condiţiile de cazare trebuie să fie decente;
- e important ca familia să fie primitoare, dornică să interacţioneze, să comunice informal (cunoştinţele de limba engleză nu sunt obligatorii, tinerii sunt încurajaţi să înveţe limba română); 
- membrii din familiile gazdă, cu vârste cuprinse între 13-30 de ani, vor putea opta pentru a participa într-o mobilitate Erasmus+ similară.

Cei interesaţi să găzduiască, îi rugăm să ne contacteze printr-un mesaj privat pe office@supertineri.org sau pe www.facebook.com/asirys.

Call for Erasmus+ Partners: MultipleQ

Monday, January 21, 2019

In an ever-changing world, which is tormented by a political and economic crisis, conflicts and the loss of cultural identity, we need youth workers that are adaptive, capable of tackling the changes, driven by a constant need for bringing something new and innovative for problem-solving. In line with this, the needs of young people are constantly changing and that is why youth work has to be able to adjust itself to these changes and should be able to give adequate support.

The project „Multiple Q” is connecting organisations, youth workers, volunteers and young people to work in a proactive and innovative way in order to design a quality approach for youth work, improving the methodologies and the capacity to work with young people.

The project aim is to develop an innovative curriculum to be applied by youth workers and organizations in order to both improve and prove the youth work impact and value in the lives of young people and for society.

The project wants to involve at least 10 partners and consists of 3 main activities:

- 1 Training Course to create an innovative curriculum to work with youth in schools and public institutions (8 days),
- 1 Community activity: Pilot the non-formal curriculum in a local school,
- 1 Seminar to share the good practices and experiences, and improve the methodology (8 days).

The main results of the mobility will be to launch and to pilot a new scheme/approach of non-formal learning, involving new methods and new forms of practical training.

Each partner organisation will select 2 or 3 participants, for the training course, over 18 years old, with relevant experience in youth work. For the seminar, the organisation will select one youth worker, a teacher and one active youth from the school involved in the project. Both mobilities will take place in Romania. The activities are connected therefore is very important for the partner to be locally involved and to send the youth workers of the organisation.

If you want to be a partner in our project, please send us your PIF to office@supertineri.org, not later than 29 January 2019.

Recenzie despre Muzeul Experienţial Rroma din Băiceni, Cucuteni, Iaşi

Monday, January 14, 2019

Odată ajunși în Băiceni, pășim entuziasmați pe un covor mare și alb de zapadă cât vedem cu ochii, de jur împrejur. Peisaj pitoresc, liniștit, amorțit, cu o sanie trasă de un cal cu clopoței zgomotoși în ham, un tânăr băiat cu skiurile în spate făcând drumuri înainte și înapoi preț de câteva ore pentru a se distra, oameni care salută și se încumetă a oferi un pahar de vin ori își oferă ajutorul necondiționat pentru vremurile viitoare când ne vom întoarce. Fumul iese din hornurile caselor, oamenii stau la gura sobei și se cuibăresc în căldura căminului lor, cu gândul la cei de aici sau de departe.


Din fumul trecutului și a memoriilor îndepărtate șterse de vreme, aflăm din gura unui sătean în vârstă, istoria pe scurt a locului unde își are temelia Muzeul Experienţial. Cândva casă pentru cineva, care din diverse motive, întamplări sau timp, a ajuns să fie, de un timp, un loc sacru și memorabil pentru voluntarii Super Tineri Asirys, de aici sau din afara României, un loc în care, amintirile se văd scrijelite, pictate, plantate, așezate într-un anumit loc cu un anumit scop, nimic la voia întâmplării, fiecare purtând un gând, o emoție, o moștenire pentru cei ce vor să vină.


Istoria ne dă o dovadă a importanței acestui loc (Băiceni) care ne stârnește imaginația. În anul 1959, într-o lutărie din comună, la marginea estică a platoului „Laiu”, a fost descoperit tezaurul princiar din aur al Frăției Getice şi recuperat cu începere din 1961 de către specialiștii Muzeului de Istorie al Moldovei. Ansamblul pieselor componente ale acestui tezaur princiar getic recuperat a atins greutatea de aprox. 2,5 kg metal preţios (aur), prelucrat în diferite obiecte cu caracter ritualic și apotropaic.


În concluzie, acest loc, Muzeul Experienţial, oferă nu doar locația cu acces la oameni  ospitalieri, peisaj frumos, apă sulfuroasă ideală pentru sănătatea organismului, o grădină de vară în care se vor desfășura diverse activități, îndeletniciri, ci și un loc în care se ține cont de istoria cucuteniană cunoscută în toată lumea, de nevoile din prezent dar și cu viziuni mari pentru viitor. Muzeul îşi revendică valoarea nu prin numărul de etaje sau de camere ci prin ceea ce oferă voluntarii. Muzeul e un loc pentru cei ce vor să se formeze, să testeze, să învețe despre ei, pentru ei și pentru alții despre viață, să creeze un climat plăcut şi non-formal.

12 informaţii interesante: Turist în CLUJ NAPOCA

Nickname: Treasure City (orașul comoară)

Orașul în sine, un loc liniștit, de modă veche, încărcat cu istorie și cultură, se străduiește prin potențialul modern și neconvențional să anime atmosfera urbană cu evenimente, viața de noapte, prin parcurile, cafenele, restaurantele, muzeele, câteva din elementele care constituie identitatea sa.


Acest oraș veșnic tânăr, oamenii calzi, „casa departe de casă”, ajunge să cucerească și devine locul unde își pun speranța mulți tineri cu gândul că visele lor vor deveni realitate și că, vor contribui la dezvoltarea orașului ospitalier. Cei care caută aici refugiu chiar și pentru câteva zile se îndrăgostesc iremediabil. 

De ce Cluj ? Cu mare curiozitate și o listă lungă cu locuri de văzut neapărat, am plecat spre acest oraș cunoscut pentru îmbinarea vechiului cu noul, pentru istoria locală întâlnită la orice pas și noutăți.
Accesibilitatea la orice punct de interes prin consultarea unui info point ca vă va oferi gratuit pliante și informații. Mi-am dorit să imortalizez o imagine, un sentiment, o experientă trăită în oraș.
Oraşul are o aplicaţie unde oricine poate primi un răspuns în timp real. Parcarea poate fi plătită prin SMS, şoferii au unde să-şi încarce maşinile electrice, iar pietonii circulă cu autobuze electrice.


Cu o filosofie cosmopolitană, Clujul a fost declarat lider în clasamentul naţional privind calitatea vieţii conform centrului Numbeo. În baza de date a Numbeo nu găsim Târgu Frumos dar putem îmbunătăți acest aspect așa cum se pot îmbunătăți multe altele. Tot Cluj a primit statutul de Capitală Europeană a Tineretului în 2015. Acest statut reprezintă o recunoaştere a oraşului şi paşaportul pentru câştigarea statutului de Capitală Culturală Europeană în 2021 (Statutul de Capitală Europeană a Tineretului a fost introdus în anul 2009, cu oraşul Rotterdam (Olanda), urmat de Torino (Italia) în 2010, Anvers (Belgia) în 2011, Braga (Portugalia), Maribor (Slovenia) în 2013 şi Salonic în 2014). Acest statut nu s-ar fi obținut fără implicarea comunității. Prin intermediul implementării unei platforme online, oricine putea să-și înregistreze proiectul, astfel activitățile au explodat.


În concluzie, putem reflecta la punctele tari ale Clujului care a reușit și reușește, nu doar să visăm mare. Prin  noi și prin intermediul comunității, putem și trebuie să ridicăm standardele culturale și economice pentru un prezent și un viitor mai bun.
 
Cluj are un motto puternic: WE BUILD ON KNOWLEDGE.

Nu doar capitală europeană a tineretului, Clujul este și capitala sportului cât și a muzicii. Cluj-Napoca a câștigat titlul de Oraș European al Sportului 2018.
 

12 informaţii interesante despre Cluj-Napoca
 
1. CLUJ-NAPOCA ARE O VECHIME DE 2.000 DE ANI
Cuvântul „Napoca” din denumirea orașului a fost numele citadelei romane construite pe teritoriul municipiului în urmă cu mai bine de 2.000 de ani. După ce au luptat cu dacii și au cucerit teritoriul regatului lor, romanii s-au așezat și au construit o citadelă în locul în care acum este centrul orașului. In secolele I și II, Napoca a fost capitala noii provincii romane și unul dintre cele mai importante orașe din estul Imperiului Roman.

2. UN ORAȘ CU TREI NUME
Cu toate că numele orașului este Cluj-Napoca, localnicii îi spun simplu ”Cluj”. Dar dacă privim plăcuțele de la intrare, trei nume vor fi dezvăluite: Cluj, Jolozsvar și Klausenburg. Kolozvar este versiunea în limba maghiară, în timp ce Klausenburg este varianta nemțească.

3. INIMA TRANSILVANIEI
Cluj nu este denumit „Inima Transilvania” datorită poziției sale geografice, ci pentru rolul în dezvoltarea istorică și economică a regiunii. În secolul 18 și începutul secolului 19, când Transilvania făcea parte din Imperiul Austro-Ungar, Clujul era capitala provinciei imperiului, un titlu neoficial pe care orașul în deține și în ziua de azi.

4. CAPITALA TINERETULUI
În anul 2015, Cluj a fost Capitala Europeană a Tineretului. Mai multe manifestații și evenimente au fost organizate de-a lungul anului, inclusiv prima ediție a festivalului UNTOLD, care a pus orașul pe harta tineretului. Fiind și al doilea centru universitar din țară, Clujul nu încetează să surprindă.


5. CLUJ ARE O STRADĂ PLINĂ DE BARURI       
O treime din populația Clujului este formată de studenți proveniți din toată țara și Europa, atrași de studiul variat, de vivacitatea orașului și de toate oportunitățile pe care le oferă. Locul lor preferat în oraș este strada Piezisa, un drum plin de baruri unde puteți savura o băutură mult mai puțin decât în centrul orașului.

5. ORAȘUL ARTISTIC AL VIITORULUI
Cluj a fost inclus pe lista internațională orașelor artistice al viitorului.

6. PREMIERĂ MONDIALĂ ÎN CLUJ
Aici se găsește prima cafenea cu design kinetic steampunk cu un design unic în lume.
 

7. CLUJ ARE PROPRIUL SĂU PREPARAT LOCAL
Dacă întrebi localnicii ce mâncare tradițională ar recomanda, primul răspuns va fi Varză a la Cluj.

8. PRAF DE MUMIE ȘI AFRODISIACE VECHI DE SECOLE
Dacă ești student la medicină sau doar pasionat de remedii vechi, este un loc pe care nu trebuie să îl ratezi: Muzeul Farmaciei, care îi introduce pe vizitatori în lumea leacurilor din secolul 16 până în secolul 19, când praful de mumie era una dintre principalele tratamente pentru boli. De asemenea, poți învăța cum se prepara elixirul dragostei.

9 CEL MAI PRIETENOS ORAȘ DIN EUROPA
Un sondaj al Comisiei Europene privind prezența străinilor și dacă este bun pentru oraș, a clasat Cluj printre primii participanți. Clujul a înregistrat cea mai mare rată de acord cu 91% dintre localnicii săi având o perspectivă pozitivă asupra străinilor care vin sau locuiesc în oraș.

10. CEL MAI CURAT AER DIN EUROPA
Cluj a ocupat primul loc în rândul a 100 de orașe mai mari din Uniunea Europeană în ceea ce privește calitatea aerului. Conform cercetărilor publicate de revista franceză We Demain în 2014, Cluj-Napoca și Edinburgh sunt singurele două orașe mari în care numărul mediu de zile de poluare a aerului care depășește nivelurile normale este zero.

11. UN CLUSTER IT INOVATIV
Cu mai mulți ingineri IT pe cap de locuitor decât SUA, China, India sau Rusia, România se dezvoltă într-o destinație foarte atractivă pentru companiile IT. Cluj IT a fost înfiinţată în 2012, o companie bazată pe cluster creată ca o reţea de companii IT şi organizaţii conexe. Scopul lor este creșterea competitivității și a creșterii în cazul serviciilor IT și al produselor utilizând produse și produse inovatoare.

12. CEA MAI MARE SALĂ POLIVALENTĂ DIN SUD-ESTUL EUROPEI
Deschisă în 2014, Sala Polivalentă este cea mai mare și mai modernă de acest gen din sud-estul Europei. Poate găzdui mai mult de 7.000 de persoane pentru evenimente sportive și aproximativ 10.000 pentru un concert. De la deschidere, James Blunt, Julio Iglesias, Eros Ramazzotti, Lara Fabian și Moderne au susținut concerte în Sala Polivalentă. În 2017, a avut loc la Campionatul European de Gimnastică și la FIBA EuroBasket 2017.

Third month as Erasmus volunteer in Romania

Sunday, January 6, 2019

What a nice year was the 2018! With the ups and down. With a lot of new things I learnt, new friends, new places. The year passed so fast, especially these last 3 months, that I started my EVS here in Romania. It's almost the 1/3 part of the time I will spent here, doing my EVS and I feel I learnt and done so many things that I couldn't even imagine in my pre-EVS life. And all of these thanks to Mihaela, the project coordinator, Dragoş, my mentor and Alin, my Romanian Language Teacher. 

Starting with this month, December, we made with some others volunteers of our organisation Asirys, a plan for presentation in Petru Rareş technological school, in Tîrgu Frumos. We visited the school and we talked with almost 200 students and their teachers about our NGO, about non-formal methods of education and about volunteering.We created a program that is called "Fapte Bune" (Good acts) in which the students are invited do some good things for their school, colleagues, teachers, town. They had so many ideas and they did a lot of things during this program. 

We introduced Forum Theatre and we made a discussion about the problems they deal everyday, like bullying. Due the high interest, we created a Forum Theatre team who presented the play during the Balul Bobocilor event , in the front of more than 300 students. The Forum play approached the issue of dropping out the school and on the first hand, had a bad end. The other students had to replace the characters to solve the problem. It was a very useful experience for the students and for me because I learnt with the help of my coordinator more about the non-formal educational methods and about technics that for sure I will use on the future. 

Continuing with the month, I had a monthly meeting with my mentor, Dragos, in which we discussed about my EVS journey so far and he gave me very good ideas on how to put in order the things I am learning for using them when I will finish my EVS and I will create my NGO.


Also I organised a workshop in our Youth Center with the topic "Tea & Crafting". It was a crafting workshop and we created some bookmarks and we discussed about other handcrafting things we would like to create.


Another  very useful experience I had this month was the cooperation of our NGO with the Code school in Iasi, a local business in which children learn more about computer programming languages. We made a workshop using non-formal educational methods presenting to the students the theory of the Multiple Intelligences by Howard Gardner. It was a very interested workshop for the students as we understood from their big smiles, and also for me because I haven't done something similar with this topic. I also gain a lot of knowledge during the preparation of the workshop by reading books and by discussing with my EVS coordinator, Mihaela. 

An unforgettable experience this month was the visit we had on Deleni, where we saw a Folk event with traditional dances, songs and clothes. I also listened some traditional Romanian Christmas songs. I met a lot of new people and we discussed about possible cooperations with our organisation.
 

This month was my birthday. In the morning we had a Newspaper workshop in our Youth Center from our volunteer Ioana and after, we did my birthday party. A lot of volunteers came, we danced, we ate, we played board games like my favorite, Dixit. I felt like it was one of my favorite birthday parties in my life and I want to thank to the volunteers so much for that.

And then the Christmas came. We made a group with others volunteers and we visited local houses and we sang Christmas Carols in Romanian. It was very challenging and fun at the same time for me, because I didn't understand the language but the volunteers helped me a lot.


I visited a town near Tirgu Frumos, Piatra Neamt. I saw the beautiful view of the town from a "telegondola" and visited the Natural and the Historical Museum.


In the New Year's Eve we were invited in the house of Alexandra, who has a local organisation in Iasi, called Youth Alma. We made with Mihaela some traditional sweets and a greek cake called "vasilopita" which we cut in Alexandra's house. It was the end of the year I wanted. I was smiling and enjoying the company of people I have close in my life and on my EVS.

Testimonial: My Forum Theater Adventure

Wednesday, January 2, 2019

Between 15 and 24 November 2018, I had one of the most beautiful and educational days in Romania. I participated in the training course organised by Youth Alma Association, called "Drama Tools for Shaping Youth".
We played a lot of energizer games, we learned new non-formal techniques, which I used while I visited the local schools with the organisation I am volunteering "Asirys".


At the beginning of the training, we tried to know each other better while creating a path with our life in the last 5 years. I saw that I had a lot of commons with most of the people. But what will be unforgettable for me is a game in which we had to describe our biggest fear and our hero when we were children. The most fascinating was that with one of the 27 participants, we had the same fear and hero.

We learned a lot about the 8 keys competences of the Youthpass certificate and we made a collage on the wall of the meeting room in which we were writing every day all the skills we achieved.


We went to the center of Iasi through a game of hidden treasure. We had to do some tasks like questioning young people about unemployment. We made a lot of photos and videos. Next day we met Alex from IDIOT and he helped us to develop our improvisation skills. We learned how to create a story with character, action, interaction, consequence, and conclusion. We learned also other non-formal activities.


The next days we got deep into the world of Forum Theatre. At first, we learned a lot about the history and the purpose of Forum Theatre, then we split into groups and we started to create the story that we would present to the students. We had 7 characters, the oppressor, the oppressed, two allies of the oppressor, two allies of the oppressed, a neutral and the jocker - who would be basically between us, the actors and the students. We presented a story with some of the problems they deal every day, like bullying and I was one of the allies of the oppressed. The students found very good solutions for the problems of our protagonist and I hope they enjoyed it as much as we did.

These are a few of the things I lived during this training course. For sure I will always remember every person I met and everything I learned through the cubes some participants gave me, the pictures and the songs that I keep hear on the radio which reminds me the dances we had every night. And to end, one of the most funniest moment of my experience, was when the Romanian team decided to present their culture by organizing a traditional wedding, so this is how I got married in Romania.

My second month as international volunteer in Romania

Wednesday, December 5, 2018

 ... So continuing my EVS trip in Tirgu Frumos. Thanks to Mihaela - the project coordinator, Dragoş - my mentor, Alin - my Romanian teacher and the volunteers of our organisation, Asirys, I had another wonderful month in Romania that passed so fast, full of new information, new pictures, new trips and many new friends.

From the first days of the month we continued our cooperation with the local shop where we organized some meetings with the volunteers and discussed about the Greek intercultural day. We also started an event called "Thank God it's Friday", where we are presenting each Friday, European movies in our youth center for the volunteers and all people interested. The first movie we saw it was a German one which was followed by an interesting conversation about the message and what we can learn from it. During the weekend, I visited the botanical garden in Iasi and saw a lot of flowers and trees that grow in the country this season.

The second week started with visits at two local schools where we discussed with the principals about how we can cooperate. 


In Trinitas Highschool we visited the traditional museum of the school and we arranged to cooperate in a project about tranditions and crafts. I suggested to the director a science lab in the school with autistic children. Next day we met with Larisa, the English teacher of the schools, we is also volunteer in our organisation, with whom we brainstormed new project ideas. 

In Petru Rares School we arranged a long term partnership and a workshop for the student leaders. 

At the end of two days, I met with some volunteers in our youth center, we made rehearsals with Greek folk dances and we prepared for the Greek event. I followed a new online Romanian lesson, on the European platform. 

This week we had another European movie event, this time from Italy. Saturday, I hosted  the Greek event in the local shop we cooperate with. I made a presentation about Greece and about places people could visit in Greece for vacations. The participants wrote their names with Greek letters and I teach them how to make Greek coffee. The event ended with a presentation about Greek folk dances. Actually the local volunteers from our organisation helped me and we all danced together. Sunday I visited the Biblioteca Centrală Universitară "Mihai Eminescu" and a guide showed me all the spaces and told me about the history of the building.

In the third week I helped the project coordinator to organise the receipts of the projects and she explained me a lot about the European projects. Next day, Alina Mirela Ipate invited us to visit Institutul de Chimie Macromoleculară "Petru Poni" in Iaşi. She told us a lot about the history of the institution and we met some of her colleagues. At the end of the day we went to SportED in the university of Iaşi and we heard very inspiring speeches from professionals like the Olympic champion Ana Maria Brânză. The week ended with a visit to Petru Rares Highschool where we had an workshop with the students about volunteering. From 15th until 23rd of November we participated in a Drama Tool training course. I had made a different report about this experience. 

When we came back from the training course we were also part on a science lab which was established in the local shop (Casa Modei Tîrgu Frumos) that cooperates with us. I helped the chemistry teacher during the lab to work with the children and took a lot of photos so we can post them on our Facebook page. I also participated in a workshop, which was presented by Ioana, one of the volunteers of our youth center, with the topic of Healthy Lifestyle.

At the end of the month I did some interviews through Skype for volunteers from universities in Europe and I had another Romanian online lesson. I also participated in a clay workshop in which the teacher told us a lot of information about ancient Romanian ceramic art. Actually it was very interesting the fact that she showed us sculptures from Cucuteni, the place where I stayed during the Rroma HeArt project on August of 2018 and I first discussed with Mihaela, who was the coordinator of that project too, about me doing EVS here in Tirgu Frumos. I was funny how this month ended with a connection of how all began.

So this is how it was my second month. See you all next month with more new information and pictures.


As you may know, we are hosting at the moment our first EVS volunteer, Nikolia, from Greece. She will spend 12 months with us, helping to develop our youth center and create a more active community by volunteering! Each month our volunteer, Nikolia Papadopoulou will share her experience in Romania through a small report which we will post it on our blog.

It’s EUr time! 7 countries, 42 participants, 1 goal

Thursday, November 8, 2018

Asap Europe, an NGO based in Fasano, Italy, has organised an Erasmus+ youth exchange covering the issues of active citizenship and youth participation. The project named “Ci Piace” gathered 42 participants from Italy, Portugal, Poland, Romania, Bulgaria, Macedonia and Greece for the period of one week.

The participants explored the topic with the methodology of non-formal learning. The issues were tackled interactively through group-work and entertaining sessions, including role-playing, theatre, posters, drawing, video creation and more. One of the goals was to reflect on our role in the society and how we can engage better within it.  As part of the activities the members of the project got the chance to attend a meeting with the city mayor and a representative of the city council. It allowed them to get an insight into the issues that are discouraging Fasano’s youngsters to engage actively in their community.

At the end of the project the participants ran a campaign to promote active citizenship and youth participation. In front of the municipality of Fasano, the international youth surprised the local community with a flash mob to gain visibility and introduce the project’s topics to a wider public. Afterwards the participants were ready to reply to the questions of the local youth, to share their experience within the Erasmus Plus and encourage them to be better informed and engaged citizens in their daily life.


SUPER TINERI team was represented by Constantin Cristinel Păiuș (leader), Crina Elena Acatrinei, Ionela Diana Bălăceanu, Florin Păduraru, Andreea Botezatu and Elena-Mădălina Prepeliţa.
