Date du début: 1 mai 2016, Date de fin: 31 déc. 2016 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

From 22nd till the 31st of July Stichting HIP’92 will host a youth exchange in Hoogwoud (North Holland, the Netherlands). About 60 youngsters, age between 16 and 25, from the Netherlands, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Estonia with divers economic backgrounds will participate in this exchange. There will be youngsters participating with different backgrounds on a cultural, educational, social skills an financial level. A balance between male and female participants will be secured. The project theme is ‘Re-Cycling’. This theme, based on climate change, is the base of the exchange because it is playing a big part in today’s society. On the 12th of December nearly all 200 participants agreed on a new binding climate agreement during the ‘COP21’ (21st Conference of Parties’) in Paris.With the agreement greenhouse gas emissions must be reduced and global warming be limited. In this project the awareness of climate change will increase and young people will be inspired and encouraged to actively contribute to a cleaner and more sustainable environment. The premise of the project is to start with yourself, that's the beginning. The participants will participate in various activities related to the overall theme. This gives them the opportunity to meet with the local initiatives promoting a better environment in an informal way, they take part in a role-play where the Conference of Parties’ is reenacted, the participants will try to create energy by themselves, we are going to a waste- and power center (Huis Vuil Centrale, HVC), there will be a guest lecturer from the University of Wageningen who will talk about the importance of sustainable food and there will be a workshop where the participants have to create a new product or artistic object of waste (recycling). The youngsters also have to give a presentation on developments in the field of alternative energy and sustainability in their own country, this way they learn to elaborate on the developments in their own country, but they also learn what developments there are in the other countries. Participants will learn to implement different methods of sustainability in their daily lives, as for example the National Dinner will be prepared with as many eco-friendly products. Throughout the project, the working method is very important: this youth exchange builds on the understanding that intergroup contact is a crucial prerequisite for encouraging dialogue and discussions and fostering positive awareness of other cultures. This youth exchange puts strong emphasis on interactive and 'mixed-groups' working methods, and also includes cultural and social activities (e.g. the 'national dinner') that will encourage youngsters to familiarize themselves with each other’s lives, cultures and living environments. The three most important outcomes of this project are: (1) a better understanding of the conditions that contribute to the climate change, (2) more knowledge on a sustainable lifestyle and how to implement this in the daily life, (3) positive awareness of the different cultures among the youth of the five participating countries.It also has a positive effect on language development of young people through communication and interaction which is encouraged during the project. The potential long-term benefits arising from the project are increased tolerance for different cultures in Europe, the gained skills (presentation, language and social skills), the awareness of the seriousness of climate change and your own part in this. For the organizations the long-term benefit is dissemination of the results of the project will contribute to the visibility of youth exchanges as an informal educational tool, as well as the visibility for all organizations and the Erasmus+ programme as a whole.
