H.R.Y.O. IS LOOKING FOR PARTICIPANTS AND YOUTH LEADERS!
Venue: Godrano (Palermo), Sicily
Dates: 7th-14th November 2015 (travel days excluded)
The project “Stars Children – A way for the Recycle” with its title refers to what we are as humans: we are children of the stars, we are all created by the same stellar explosion, we are “precious junk” stellar. This Youth Exchange is developed for reviewing together through activities and workshops, this aspect of our reality to break down the borders within Europe, to create active citizenship and to break down stereotypes. We will focus on the sky and its secrets. We will dive into the depths of the universe trying to understand the movements among it. We will go to the Observatory of Ventimiglia to enjoy the view of celestial bodies than “wander” in infinite space.
The main goal of the project is to create union between young Europeans and to build a collaboration between them in order to discover together how are lives are conditioned by the explosion of these supernovae: we are created by an astronomical event and we want to create a civil society where prejudice, violence and war don’t take place.
So, the objectives are active citizenship, cross-cultural relation within the EU, waste recycling, respect for the environment, cooperation between the peoples of Europe, elimination of the prejudices, development of the concept of a united Europe and finally enhancement of European motto “United in diversity”.
