Memories from Paris’ Youth Exchange “Sound of diversity”

My journey to a new experience started on 13th November, Monday morning, rainy weather and sleepy me just seeing how the bus went by in front of me to the airport, but I didn’t panic and I was lucky enough to catch it at the next stop because of the morning traffic. After this I had that feeling of panic and I realized that something new was going to happen soon, was that my expectations? Or intention to make memories? I guess it was all together collected in a mix of emotions wondering for better days. I Had this vibe inside me all day long until I finally got to Paris and more exactly Noisy le Grand where the project was held. I was part of Italian team together with other three participants from Palermo and one girl from Florence, we didn’t know each other but we had to work as a united team, and I can say we definitely did a good work together. We had a language barrier as I don’t speak very well Italian and they couldn’t express themselves clear in English we were discussing in group and after giving final answers.
So there was the first day of 21 young enthusiastic participants from three different countries: Italy, France and Romania, Europe though but so much different and all the same. For some of us it was the first time in this type of exchange, other participants already felt very familiar in this field. We had to break the ice and to start interactions and to discover each other.
The project was named “Sound of Diversity” and the main aim was to learn about human rights and discuss the problems we face now days in our countries, to look for solutions how to solve them and the ways we can improve searching for solutions that can be efficient and useful in our opinion. Race, identity, human dignity, religion, solidarity, employment, etc., were the daily topics.
We had several open conversation and debates, we were divided in mixed groups and we had to find the optimum answers and sometimes after long argues it was hard to agree on something as the difference of beliefs and culture, backgrounds we tried to look open mind and to accept someone’s views and ideas, that’s the new way of learning in an intercultural environment. I can say that it`s an optimal challenge of a new vision and understanding ourselves to something new: ideas, theories, beliefs or lifestyle, culture and traditions. It’s easier to understand others mentality by sharing thoughts in a practical network involving efficient practices and simulation. During the evenings we represented our countries and it’s traditions by dancing, cooking and singing as a big family.


We had also to go into the challenge and to learn an African dance that was difficult and hard to catch the moves, but after several practice we tried to feel the music and share that vibe and I proudly believe we did a good job all together. It was that fun part when we could express through body language and by our moves we could discover that “Sound and moves of Diversity”!
We had a great time and starting the project with being strangers we ended up by giving feedbacks that I guess nobody will forget, we have learned a lot from each other and improved our knowledge about our beliefs. And the breaks we had outside of the project discovering the beautiful unknown small streets of Paris, wonderful historical places we visited and being surrounded by beautiful people made this exchange “magical”.
 Don’t be afraid of changes, give yourself a challenge and you will discover what you are apt and capable for, that’s how we create our personality and gain lifetime memories.[:en]My journey to a new experience started on 13th November, Monday morning, rainy weather and sleepy me just seeing how the bus went by in front of me to the airport, but I didn’t panic and I was lucky enough to catch it at the next stop because of the morning traffic.

[:it]Una settimana di confronto sul “Gender Sensitive Language”[:]

[:it]Due venticinquenni, maschi, a “rappresentare” l’Italia a un seminario sul Gender sensitive journalism and reporting. Il bagaglio per Shtip, cittadina nella parte orientale della Macedonia, era pieno di aspettative ma anche di timori. L’idea del confronto con altri e altre giovani da Repubblica Ceca, Croazia, Serbia, Macedonia e Bulgaria su temi a noi cari ci ha però convinti a partire e lasciare all’aeroporto di Skopje dubbi e pregiudizi.

Shtip non è stata una scelta casuale: qui l’industria tessile è fra le più importanti fonti di sostentamento per i residenti e la maggior parte della manodopera utilizzata nelle fabbriche è rappresentata dalle donne del posto. Un lavoro le cui condizioni sono spesso denunciate come estreme e i salari molto bassi. Abbiamo avuto modo di visitare alcuni stabilimenti che hanno confermato ciò che alcune ONG descrivono da tempo.

Tra l’arrivo in terra macedone e la visita agli stabilimenti tessili di Shtip è passata una settimana di dibattiti, confronto e laboratori sul tema del Gender sensitive language (che non sembra avere un termine proprio in italiano), ovvero “la realizzazione dell’uguaglianza di genere nel linguaggio scritto e parlato”.

Dedicati i primi giorni alla conoscenza reciproca e alla condivisione delle questioni nazionali legate al tema (durante la quale abbiamo presentato la situazione in chiaro scuro a cui assistiamo nel nostro paese, in cui la differenza di salario tra uomini e donne è la seconda più bassa dell’Unione Europea ma in cui i media continuano a rappresentare le donne in maniera distorta e diseguale rispetto agli uomini), al centro della settimana si è approfondito l’argomento grazie agli interventi di alcune giornaliste provenienti dalle televisioni della zona e la presentazione delle attività di una ONG macedone molto attiva sul fronte delle questioni di genere e la difesa delle donne da violenza domestica e sfruttamento. Rafforzate le nostre basi di conoscenza sul tema, abbiamo potuto mettere direttamente ‘le mani in pasta’ e misurarci con la stesura di pezzi giornalistici ‘sperimentali’ sensibili alle questioni di genere .

Il risultato del laboratorio di scrittura è poi confluito in un’analisi specifica dell’importanza del Gender Sensitive Language e di quali strumenti si ha bisogno per imprimere un cambio ai nostri sistemi comunicativi e linguistici, da questo punto di vista spesso ‘diseguali’.[:]

DEVIANZE E CRIMINE
ANTOLOGIA RAGIONATA DI TEORIE CLASSICHE E CONTEMPORANEE
a cura di CIRUS RINALDI e PIETRO SAITTA

Il testo mira a divenire pietra miliare all’interno del panorama sociologico italiano, colmando un vuoto editoriale nella ricerca sociologica relativa al crimine e alla devianza.

DEVIANZE E CRIMINE è una rassegna di studi inediti sull’approccio interrogativo, riflessivo e critico al diritto e allo Stato.

Il volume ricostruisce le basi teoriche principali passando dal classico al contemporaneo , dalla scuola di Chicago alle nuove direzioni assunte dalla ricerca sociologica tra criminologia culturale, genere e crimine, ponendo l’attenzione sull’aspetto metodologico ed epistemologico.
La prima parte del libro tratta l’anomia, il funzionalismo e le teorie sub culturali portando nella seconda parte alla scoperta delle teorie non proprio “mainstream” concentrandosi sull’interazionismo, il marxismo e la teoria critica di matrice strutturalista e post-strutturalista.

Un approccio critico alla questione della devianza che mette in luce i nessi tra struttura sociale, economica e produzione della criminalità; la devianza è un prodotto endogeno ai rapporti di potere, non è un fatto naturale, ma il prodotto di determinate scelte statali.

Le soggettività sociali sono il frutto di scelte, discorsi, sensazioni e rapporti di forza. Come si pongono dunque le politiche di prevenzione e controllo statale? Sono esse funzionali alla produzione e alla riproduzione del crimine? Sono questi alcuni degli interrogativi al quale il manuale tenta di rispondere.

[:it]

Good Practice Exchange on eParticipation Platforms among European Youth (2016-2-ES02-KA205-008260) è un progetto finanziato dal programma Erasmus + e realizzato dall’organizzazione Biderborst, Boscán & Rochín (BB & R) in collaborazione con H.R.Y.O. Human Rights Youth Organization e Momentum World. Il progetto si concentra sulla generazione e lo scambio di informazioni, dati e buone pratiche tra Spagna, Italia e Regno Unito per quanto riguarda le piattaforme di eParticipation per potenziare i giovani europei all’educazione civica. 

Lo sviluppo della tecnologia ha reso gli strumenti informatici centrali nella vita quotidiana dei cittadini e rilevanti per I sistemi politici. Negli ultimi anni le democrazie di tutto il mondo, inclusa l’Unione europea (UE), si trovano ad affrontare due problemi. In primo luogo, un disimpegno tra politici e cittadini. In secondo luogo, la mancanza di legittimità nei processi istituzionali a tutti i livelli. Entrambi i problemi sono più accentuati tra i giovani.

Nell’ambito del progetto, uno degli obiettivi è quello di incoraggiare e coinvolgere i giovani cittadini nel processo di discussione e di sperimentare nuovi sistemi di partecipazione dei giovani nella vita politica. Il progetto ha incluso il coinvolgimento di giovani studenti nella sperimentazione di nuove piattaforme e sistemi in grado di aumentare la loro partecipazione e migliorare le competenze civiche tra i giovani europei.

La sessione di E-PARTECIPATION che ha avuto luogo in Italia ha coinvolto 6 giovani che hanno lavorato con la piattaforma DemocracyOS (http://democracyos.org), uno spazio on-line per la deliberazione e il voto sulle proposte politiche, una piattaforma per un governo più aperto e partecipativo.

Attraverso questa piattaforma i ragazzi hanno avuto la possibilità di dialogare e vedere altre proposte condivise all’interno della piattaforma, di discutere e creare le proprie proposte. Erano entusiasti e hanno partecipato attivamente, proponendo iniziative molto interessanti per contrastare la disoccupazione giovanile in Italia.

A questo proposito, l’obiettivo principale di questa attività è che i giovani esplorino la piattaforma, per sapere se la trovano attraente e se è possibile utilizzarla nella loro vita quotidiana. Queste informazioni ci consentiranno di sapere quali caratteristiche sono necessarie per stimolare l’uso della piattaforma e quali aspetti limitano i giovani nella fruizione di questo tipo di strumento.

Per presentare e diffondere i risultati delle attività del progetto, H.R.Y.O. Human Rights Youth Organization organizzerà un evento locale a Palermo nelle prossime settimane.

Stay tuned!

Good Practice Exchange on eParticipation Platforms among European Youth (2016-2-ES02-KA205-008260) is a project financed from the Erasmus+ Programme and implemented by the organization Biderborst, Boscán & Rochín (BB&R) in collaboration with H.R.Y.O. Human Rights Youth Organization and Momentum World. The project focuses on generate and exchange information, data and Best Practices between Spain, Italy and the UK regarding eParticipation Platforms to empower young Europeans on civic education

The development of technology has made ICTs central to citizens’ daily lives and relevant for political systems. In the last few years, democracies all around the world, included the European Union (EU), are facing two problems. First, a disengagement between politicians and citizens. Second, a lack of legitimacy in institutional processes at all levels. Both problems are more enhanced among young people. 

Within the project, one of the goals was to encourage and involve young citizens in the process of discuss and test new systems of participation for young people in political life. The project included the involvement of young students in the testing of new possible platforms and systems able to increase youth participation and improve civic competences among European youngsters.

The E-PARTICIPATION Youth Session that took place in Italy involved 6 youngsters that worked with the platform DemocracyOS (http://democracyos.org), an on-line space for deliberation and voting on political proposals, a platform for a more open and participatory government.

Through this platform, they had the chance to dialogue and view other proposals that were being shared through the platform, debate and create their own proposals. They were enthusiastic and they participated actively, proposing very interesting initiatives to contrast youth unemployment in Italy.

In this regard, the main objective of this activity is that young people explore the platform, in order to know if they find it attractive and if they would use it in their daily lives. This information will allow us to know what aspects young people value to use a platform and what aspects keep young people away from this type of tool.

To present and disseminate the outcomes and results of the project activities, H.R.Y.O. Human Rights Youth Organization will organize a local event in Palermo in the next weeks.

Stay tuned!

Cooperation is a wonderful instrument

Fourteen youngsters coming from Palermo participated to two Youth Exchanges, which took place in Salamanca during Summer 2017.

Both projects were funded by the Erasmus+ Programme and were organized from the organisation Biderbost, Boscan y Rochin (BB&R). The first Youth Exchange “GIVING VOICE TO YOUNG PEOPLE ABOUT EUROPEAN UNION ISSUES” involved the participation of 18 youngsters coming from Italy, Bulgaria and Spain in partnership with the Italian H.R.Y.O Human Rights Youth Organization and the Bulgarian NC Future now; the second Exchange “WHY TO BELIEVE IN THE EUROPEAN UNION” involved 16 youngsters coming from Palermo and Salamanca.
During these weeks of activities the youngsters had the great opportunity to get out of their home towns and experience how life can be in a different country. Although this can be an easy step for many adults, this may not be given for granted with young students that mostly haven’t had a chance yet to leave their home for more than a few days. When we think about opportunities and ways to create wider European connections and awareness about other cultures, this is part of it. These experience was also for them a way to experiment new relationships and get to know people with different backgrounds, because different cultures have different ways to handle and express attitudes and maybe this is not always easy to understand. Differences can bring problems, but they can bring as well curiosity and new challenges, and if you are able to get through the first suspicious blocks of not knowing a stranger, then you’ve excepted your challenge and you have opened the door to all new kinds of possible experiences and knowledge. This was part of what the programme was about, meeting in a safe and open-minded space in which youngsters had the time to understand that, beside the differences, people can build new friendships and understand each other overcoming language and cultural barriers.
To see these young people evolve into grown up persons that were able to get closer to new people by not judging through cultural prejudices, was one of the highest goals that these experience could achieve.
During their time abroad they also developed new competences and a higher level of confidence regarding the following topics: migration/refugees, political participation, economic crisis, anti-Europeanism, EU institutions and EU in the world. Through different non formal activities, games, personal encounters with political and institutional representatives, youngsters had the opportunity to directly and indirectly increase their awareness and civic-political action, empowering following civic competences: political knowledge, political attention, political participation, political efficacy, and political tolerance.

“Giving voice to young people about European Issues” focused mostly on bringing youngsters closer to the EU and its institutions and enhance their active citizenship through non formal education and experience-based learning, which contemplated mostly the use of ICT and audiovisual media as tools to provide a highly creative and motivating way of sharing and recording their activities and improvements.
The second exchange “Why to believe in the EU” gave youngsters opportunity to increase their knowledge of EU and its importance. Through numerous non formal activities participants got to explore relevant EU institutions and their importance for all citizens of EU countries and wider. Allowing these youngsters to interact with local community of Salamanca (passengers on the street, city council…) strengthen their social and communicational skills but it has also led them to acquire intercultural abilities.
Last but not the least, both exchanges opened the door for these youngsters to an immense range of Erasmus + opportunities. They learned how they get involved and how through different EU possibilities and programmes they can acquire valuable experiences that can contribute to their personal and professional growth.

[:it]Secondo incontro tra i partner del Progetto Xenios Zeus [:]

[:it]

Si è tenuto a Palermo dal 4 al 7 maggio 2017 il secondo incontro del progetto “XENIOS ZEUS – Managing the refugee and migrant flows through the development of educational and vocational frames for children and adults” co-finanziato dal Programma Erasmus+ della Commissione Europea tramite l’Agenzia nazionale ellenica (IKY).

L’H.R.Y.O. Human Rights Youth Organization ha ospitato i rappresentanti delle organizzazioni partner tra cui la Direzione Regionale di istruzione primaria e secondaria della Macedonia centrale, l’Università di Macedonia occidentale, Diktio Alpha e l’Università di Aix-Marseille.

Durante questo incontro i partner hanno avuto modo di presentare le attività implementate e il materiale formativo creato finora, nonché pianificare le prossime tappe che prevedono il testing, la valutazione e la disseminazione degli outcomes intellettuali.

I partner hanno discusso, inoltre, la strategia e metodologia di valutazione dei materiali prodotti, tra cui una Welcome Guide da proporre come prima guida per la comunicazione linguistica sulle situazioni quotidiane di base per i rifugiati e un Toolkit oon materiale didattico di supporto per gli educatori.

All’interno del programma si sono svolti degli incontri con gli attori della società civile palermitana e delle visite ai centri di accoglienza per i migranti al fine di scambiare esperienze ed idee relative ai servizi rivolti ai migranti. Sono intervenute Yodit Abraha della Comunità Urbane Solidali e Laura Bondì del Centro Astalli e CLEDU.

Dopo una breve visita di Palermo, i partner si sono dati appuntamento per Ottobre a Marsiglia, per scoprire una realtà diversa e continuare la condivisione dei percorsi comuni.

[:it]Diamo il via al Progetto Xenios Zeus [:]

[:it]

Lunedì 7 novembre 2016 a Salonicco sono uniti i partner del progetto “XENIOS ZEUS – Managing the refugee and migrant flows through the development of educational and vocational frames for children and adults” co-finanziato dalla Commissione Europea tramite l’Agenzia nazionale ellenica (IKY).

Erano presenti la Direzione Regionale di istruzione primaria e secondaria della Macedonia centrale come capofila; l’Università di Aristotele a Salonicco, l’Università di Macedonia occidentale, l’Istituto degli archivi cartografici, Diktio Alpha, Comune di Paionia e Comune di Delta come partner locali che sono attivi nell’ambito dell’educazione e l’integrazione; l’Università di Aix-Marseille e l’H.R.Y.O. Human Rights Youth Organization come partner internazionali con le loro esperienze nel campo dell’educazione nonformale.

Il Kick-off meeting a Salonicco ha avuto come scopo quello di conoscersi tra i partner, approfondire i dettagli del piano di lavoro riguardo alle attività progettuali e il contributo di ciascun partner, nonché creare uno spazio per la condivisione delle buone pratiche e una riflessione sulle idee e azioni di attuazione.

L’idea principale del progetto Xenios Zeus è quella di sviluppare una serie di corsi di formazione per i rifugiati appena arrivati ​​nella parte settentrionale della Grecia che vuole offrire un ambiente accogliente, attraente, stimolante e creativo per l’apprendimento e la comunicazione. Xenios Zeus, quindi, vuole creare un ambiente sempre migliore in termini di formazione e consulenza, nonché la produzione di materiale didattico per l’insegnamento delle lingue e culture, che avranno un carattere di supporto, educativo, ma anche informativo e comunicativo. Diventerà una comunità di apprendimento accogliente e sostenibile perché promuoverà la collaborazione, il sostegno e l’apprendimento, innescando nuove dinamiche di apprendimento e di svago in una zona che ospita migliaia di rifugiati e migranti. Questa rete costituirà la base per un nucleo di comunicazione tra rifugiati, studenti, educatori e formatori e cercherà di collegare le comunità locali e le scuole.

Con la creazione dei prodotti intellettuali, testati in diversi contesti nell’ambito del progetto, ci aspettiamo di soddisfare i bisogni dei rifugiati e dei migranti a livello linguistico e professionale, favorendo particolarmente il miglioramento delle capacità linguistiche ed informatiche, la produzione e diffusione di materiale formativo innovativo, la progettazione di migliori pratiche, la creazione di un portale online con materiale formativo, e la collaborazione e comunicazione tra diversi attori che si occupano delle tematiche legate alla migrazione.
