Maybe you are a huge supporter of the EU, maybe you have a lot of doubts, or perhaps you are not quite sure how the EU impacts your daily life – let’s talk about it! In this project, you will not only have workshops with other young citizens of Europe, but also a trip to the EU parliament in Brussels for a meeting with politicians!
Dates: 15 – 25 February 2020
Location: Garlstedt in Germany, with a trip to Brussels (Belgium).
The main idea behind this youth exchange is that the EU is not perfect – it has both advantages and disadvantages, but it is our family that we all belong to and that we can impact with our actions. We want to connect with the EU by learning about the history, values, structures, benefits and challenges through a variety of workshops and games, but also really get to grips with politics. What better way is there than to go to Brussels and visit the EU parliament and politicians? Let’s do it!
“EU in good times and in bad” is going to be a youth exchange organized in Garlstedt (close to Bremen) in Germany which will include 42 young people and 8 group leaders from 6 different countries: Spain, Lithuania, Hungary, Poland, Italy and Germany.
The project will take place in our youth center/group house in Garlstedt (Osterholz- Scharmbeck), close to the city of Bremen, Germany. The accommodation will be simple. Participants will be sharing rooms with 4-6 people from same gender but with different nationalities. Some of the rooms are with private and some with shared bathrooms.
All costs for food and accommodation are covered by the Erasmus+ programme. Travel costs will be reimbursed up to 20€. We charge a 50€ participation fee. The trip to Brussels and all related expenses are included.
You are responsible to buy your own travel tickets to/from Bremen (Garlstedt) according to the rules stipulated by the hosting organization of the project. Your costs will be reimbursed after the end of the project if you provide all original receipts and boarding passes. This process may take 1 month. If you are experiencing a time of financial hardship and cannot afford to pay your travel costs in advance, contact us and we can find a solution together.
