Dates: 30th of September – 09th of October 2020

Location: Garlstedt, Osterholz-Scharmbeck, Germany

“Power of Creativity” is going to be a youth exchange organized in Osterholz-Scharmbeck in Germany which will include 43 young people and group leaders from 6 different countries: Italy, Spain, Greece, Estonia, Lithuania and Germany.

The main issue that we want to address with this project is the growth of radicalized youth in Europe and the growth of popularity of extremists. We believe that the main reason for this happening is the lack of knowledge among youth and lack of intercultural understanding and tolerance among some countries in Europe.

That’s why we believe that this international project with 43 young people from 6 different countries, will be the step in the right direction for a more united Europe and a more united society in general.

Participants will learn together about the danger of radicalization and share that knowledge with their peers after mobility in Germany.

Project Objectives:

  1. Empowering young people to become self-sufficient learners
  2. Encouraging and developing a sustainable “Do it yourself” approach
  3. Raising the level of digital and media literacy of young people in Europe
  4. Promoting critical thinking among youth
  5. Fighting stereotypes and prejudices through learning about different cultures
  6. Promoting youth activism, self-initiative and entrepreneurship among young people


We will be accommodated in a youth centre/group house in Osterholz- Scharmbeck, close to the city of Bremen, Germany.

The accommodation will be simple. Participants will be sharing rooms with 3-4 people from the same gender but different nationalities. Some of the rooms are with private and some with shared bathrooms.
