Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for a Youth Exchange called “We Are Getting Growth” which will take place in 15th until 22nd May 2014 in Sorgun, Turkey.
We aim to prevent young people from forgetting the games now hardly playing outside with groups by giving a chance for our young people and Europe youth to play them. These games playing in the past by our elders now as a part of countries’ cultures disappearing gradually and they are buried with our ancestors.
We will share our local and cultural games which are forgotten or on the point of being forgotten. We also get to know each other closer with the activities and saloon works. By playing the games in our culture each partner will convey the experiences which they will gain from the games to the youth in their local. Therefore, not only will they learn our games and share them with their youth in their country but also we will play and learn their games. The moments in which we play games and enjoy our time will form our common play culture. In this way, young people will see that actually they have common things even in differences.
By having young people come together, our project will provide young people who have not come into interaction with any different culture before and will help them to see similarities and differences among them.
The event will be held in English. There are 5 vacancies available and participants should have minimum 18 years old. There will be 30 young people from Turkey, Estonia, Lithuania, France, Latvia and Italy.
The Youth in Action programme will cover 100% of the accommodation, food and activities and will reimburse the participants with 70% of the travel costs. There will be a participation fee of 40 Eur. per participant.
