 Be part of Religion≠Hate - Youth Exchange on social inclusion, inter-religious and intercultural dialogue


Dates: 21 – 30 September 2018

Location: Karlobag,Croatia

Age: 17-30 years

Costs: Food and accommodation 100% free.
Travel costs maximum amount reimbursed €275

Participants needed - 8 participants 

Participating Countries: Croatia, Greece, Italy, Malta, Jordan and Georgia.

The exchange “Religion≠Hate” is a multilateral youth exchange under the KA1 of the Erasmus+ programme. The project’s idea come from the need to promote psychological well-being of LGBTI youth, inter-religious and intercultural dialogue, social inclusion and solidarity. Religion is very important because it often informs individuals and societies about moral values and appropriate rules of behaviour. At the same time, religion is often very hostile towards sexual and gender minorities (LGBTI). This causes two problems:

1) many LGBTI people are religious and are conflicted between their sexuality and their religion

2) even when LGBTI people are not religious many of their friends and family are, which makes coming out far more difficult.

The activities during the youth exchange are all based on the non-formal education method. The activities will include ice breaking activities, energisers, intercultural night, team building activities, role-plays etc. related to the theme of the exchange.

Looking forward to hearing from you!!

Quando l’alternanza scuola-lavoro diventa integrazione.

Uno degli obiettivi dei progetti di accoglienza per richiedenti asilo è quello di sostenere e fornire strumenti che facilitino l'inserimento sociale e lavorativo dei beneficiari.

Per tale motivo sono stati organizzati nei centri di accoglienza, in collaborazione coi volontari di progetto, alcuni laboratori di riciclo creativo con la finalità non solo di recuperare lo spazio della creatività e dell’espressione di sé, ma anche per rivalorizzare alcune abilità manuali ed artigianali dei beneficiari.

In particolare Gautam e Thing del CAS di Alessano, hanno avviato la produzione artigianale di oggetti realizzati utilizzando la carta di vecchi giornali, iniziando quindi un percorso di autonomia, sociale ed economica. Supportarli durante il processo creativo e artigianale a accresciuto il loro senso di autostima e la capacità di sentirsi utili a sé stessi e alla comunità accogliente.

Per far conoscere questa storia abbiamo proposto a Thing di supportarlo nell’organizzazione di un laboratorio di riciclo creativo tenuto da lui e destinato alla comunità locale di Giuliano.

Il "Laboratorio di riciclo creativo", realizzato nell'ambito del progetto PEOPLE supportato dal programma Erasmus Plus e cofinanziato dall'Agenzia Nazionale per i Giovani, si è svolto il 18 marzo ed è stato l’occasione per Thing non solo di far conoscere la propria abilità nella lavorazione della carta di giornale, ma anche di confrontarsi con la comunità locale, creando quindi un’interazione attiva con la stessa.

 

Insieme al laboratorio di riciclo creativo, è stato realizzato un laboratorio gestito in collaborazione con Palaminja, artista del cemento e della ceramica. Montaggio di Ignacio Diaz Gayoso

"No human being is illegal. Human beings can be beautiful or more beautiful, they can be fat

or skinny, they can be right or wrong, but illegal? How can a human being be illegal?” - Elie Wiesel


The name of the project I attended was ‘Support LGBTI Migrants’ a training course under KA1 of the Erasmus+ program coordinated by Platypus and consisted of a non-formal learning approach to several topics during the 7-day course. The topics covered during the training course were the social exclusion of LGBTI refugees and migrants, lack of employment and safe housing, difficulties encountered by LGBTI refugees seeking asylum and stereotypes in the media. On the final day, new project ideas were created by the participants for future ERASMUS+ exchanges.

My interest in applying for this exchange was for educational and personal reasons. Firstly, I wanting to gain more knowledge on LGBTI refugees and migrants through a non-formal approach, where I could participate in workshops with individuals from different countries who could share their different experiences with me. I also wanted to meet different people who shared common interests with me and be able to continue working with them even after the training was finished. On a personal level, I believed this training course would allow me to come out of my comfort zone when talking about certain issues and gain more confidence when it came to presenting ideas and participating in workshops.

I believe this training course was a powerful way to inform and further educate individuals regarding the real issues LGBTI migrants and refugees face. This course allowed me to challenge myself in coming up with ideas and solutions which might help LGBTI migrants and refugees. Although the participants came from different backgrounds and we spoke different languages, it was heartwarming to see how we all opted for change and expressed how we wanted to help LGBTI migrants and refugees in any way we could. Not only did this exchange allow the participants to share their experiences and knowledge on the topic, it also allowed us to create projects which were designed to further offer knowledge and support to LGBT migrants and refugees.
