Date du début: 18 août 2014, Date de fin: 17 nov. 2015 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

Context and background: The students of University of Luxembourg come from very different countries and cultures from all over the world. Lisel wants to create a network and make students feeling at home in Luxembourg. The Lisel team (co-ordinator and EVS) takes care to keep an atmosphere of international and inter-cultural exchange. Objectives: By all our activities we will encourage the students to share their experience and social/cultural background; to listen to the other students and EVS and so learn about the different kinds of life all over the world. By our activities we make sure that respect and tolerance for everyone is guaranted. We also try to have most of the activities available also for students with a very low budget; so for most of our trips, sports activities, language support, student market... students don't have to spend a lot of money. Number and profile: We usually have open activities where students can join even without registering ... the activities also try to respect the academic year: shorter trips and easy going activities approaching exam time ... The number varies from 1 to easily 35 students, according to the needs and interests of the students. During Friday event we usually welcome +/- 30 students. Description of activities: Friday event:presenting countries and actual topics of discussion accompanied with national dishes cooked by the students, EVS.. Sports activities: swimming an bicycling courses, rafting Faith sharing: weekly meeting reading in the Bible, other theological books and having exchange of ideas, convictions, experience ... Trips to discover Luxembourg: hiking to the most important places and Museums of Luxembourg (Lac de la Haute Sûre, Vianden, Echternach, Clervaux, Mullerthal, Schengen and the region of Moselle, Rumelange...) Trips to discover the neighbour cities of Luxembourg with guided tours: Trier, Metz, Nancy, Liège, Brugges ... Discover cultural events: Nëssmaart, Carnival in Köln, Christmas- market in Germany, dancing procession in Echternach ... Methodology: We try to have a very great variety of activities, so that all the students can attend to the activities according to talents, needs and interests. We combine out-door activities with hiking, cycling, discovering the country and give enough possibilities to the students to talk to each other- without any concrete subject- in small groups, while going by train, hiking... We have weekly meetings with discussions and exchange, presentation for countries and national dishes We take care that students of the same country should not stay together the whole time, but enjoy our very open- minded atmosphere and join students of other origines. Results and impact: By all our activities, we create an atmosphere of respect that is the basic of all exchanges and friendships. We try to give the possibility to grow in self-consciousnes and develop personal skills. We help and strengthen the students in overcoming eventual difficulties and show strategies for their further life. By our non-formal way of working for and with the students, we give them equilibration in their life filled with studies and hard work and so help to keep mental health. Longer term benefit: We create networks of friendships that last eventually for long years, when students are back in their country. We give the students the chance to develop their personality and so get strong persons that can build the future of the wold.
