ABOUT COMANESTI:

The area of the town of Comănești has been inhabited since the Neolithic period - Neolithic remains were found in the Vermești area of the town. The name is derived from the Cumans who once ruled the region. Its first written record dates from 1657, and its first presence on a map from the 1696 Sanson Map.

From the late 18th century onwards, the town was in the domain of the Ghica family of boyars, who remained an important presence in the area until the middle of the 20th century. The Ghica Palace (now housing the local museum), the park in front of the museum, and the railway stations are testimonies to their presence in the town.

Erasmus+ KA1 Youth Exchanges Programme

 

 

 

 

SUMMARY OF THE PROJECT:

The participant organizations are from Lithuania, Latvia, Bulgaria and Poland. Seeing the need of intercultural exchanges and dialogue among youngsters coming from these countries, project partners designed the proposed project together.
The main objectives of the project are:
• to create intercultural environment and enhance tolerance and empathy, to show that cultural differences are an advantage rather than a disadvantage.
• to accept cultural differences and enhance understanding of each other’s culture.

 

The project will attain manifold aims such as: promotion of intercultural exchanges and diversity, values of democracy, tolerance and respect of human rights. We plan to steer debates about the most pressing social issues and the role of youth in addressing intercultural learning and social inclusion of people with fewer opportunities. Moreover, the initiative will give new ideas on how youngsters can engage more actively in social life.

 

 

 

RESULTS OF THE YOUTH EXCHANGE:

Participants will have wider perspectives on youth activism and exchange understanding of their role in intercultural society. By doing so, we will have more ideas to suggest to local stakeholders regarding the development of particular issues addressed during the project, which will have added value not only for the community where the exchange is held, but for the communities where participants come from too. Besides, we will improve understanding on how to establish intercultural relations, debate and discuss ambivalent issues in an international setting.
Meantime, we will improve soft skills such as communication, self-performance and presentation skills. The project gives equal opportunities to every young person to participate in the action with special emphasis on the needs of youth with fewer opportunities. The composition of the participants will be diverse as they will come from very distinct cultural, national, ethnic and religious backgrounds.

 

 

METHODOLOGY:

Various methods such as icebreaker games, group and individual work, brainstorming sessions, sticker, power and name games are included in daily agenda. During these activities, we enhance multiple skills and approaches. Additionally, reflection sessions will be used to track record on development and exchange ideas on the project and how it can be improved.

 

 

PROFILE OF PARTICIPANTS:

The expected background of participants is youth 18 to 30 years old with interest in learning about other cultures. Younger participants will be also welcomed, but not let than 16 years old.

 

Each team will be composed of 9 participants and 2 Group Leaders (in total 44 participants). The Leaders of the national groups must have experience in being a leader in youth exchanges or youth work.
