Together for Europe
Date du début: 1 mai 2016, Date de fin: 31 déc. 2017 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

Together for Europe invites 45 young people between 15 and 18 years old from Germany, France and Poland in order to exchange ideas regarding Europe to Krzyzowa (PL) and Berlin (DE). Due to the 25th anniversary of the meetings of the Weimar Triangle, during workshops and a simulation game young people deal intensively with topics that are social, historical and political important for them as young citizens of the European Union. In the interest of the consultation meetings of France's, Germany's and Poland's ministers of foreign affairs, that were dedicated to peaceful relations within the EU and an equal exchange on current issues, participants of TfE want to deal with the topic of refugees and migration. Based on the annual topic of the KI, "Europe under construction", where we ask for the current condition of the community of solidarity and values, deal participants with the meaning of the European space. Shall it be a space that isolates itself from refugees and migrants or does it realize the chances that are connected to the diversity of people that will pave the way for further developments. During the project the young participants will learn about the reasons, conditions and consequences of migration and fleeing today and in the past. Furthermore they learn how decision-making processes on EU-level work and how they can get politically involved on a local level. On the basis of a simulation game, the young participants will discuss and implement solution strategies at EU level as well as in small local communities. With the help of such a self-experience method the participants will be aware of the possibilities and difficulties of political participation, the legal conditions of refugees in the EU and in certain member states. As a result the young people will be more sensitive and reflective in terms of migration and the political mechanisms of the EU. Furthermore the importance and conditions of Human Rights and the rule of law will be underlined. The simulation game is part of a program of different workshops, seminars and meetings of political decision makers. During this program participants will learn about the history, structure and current political situation of the EU. Equally the participants get to know how they themselves can become involved in the civil society. The composition of the participants is considering cultural as well as social diversity, in order to create a realistic image of Europe's societies and to guarantee approaching the topic of escape and migration in a multifaceted way. TfE's goal is to learn about the origin and history of the EU, its represented values and political functioning. Teaching "Europe" is often deficient during teachers trainings what makes it difficult to implement the topic in curricula. TfE is reacting on this demand.On the basis of a current political topic, young people will be encouraged to become active European citizens and to foster the European awareness and their interest in democracy. The young participants will disseminate their knowledge and their experiences via a project blog and microprojects. Thereby they will take over the role of peer-multipliers. The blog gives young people the possibility to get informed and to exchange opionions on the topic of escape and migration. That is how the project TfE is taking its stand for the democracy education of young Europeans and is promoting social and political participation.
