SAILING ON CITIZENSHIP – INTRODUCTORY ARTICLE

On February 2nd 2019, a team of 5 young people from Macedonia took part in the international Erasmus+ youth exchange project „Sailing on Citizenship“. Together with youth representatives of 5 other countries (Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Turkey and Croatia) participants will attend theoretical and practical workshops dedicated to exploring the European union, their rights and duties as citizens as well as their perception of the EU in future.
Half of the programme is based on creative workshops focused on building the installation of ship („CitizenShip“) that will present everything that participants have learned about the EU; everything that EU means to them. Workshops will be implemented in the local youth center, where participants will be able to build installation, draw, paint, as well as interact with local youth.
„CitizenShip“ installation, as one of the final project results, will be presented to the local citizens on the last day of the project and will be exhibited in Samobor Youth Center.

Mavrovo from Above

Drone short film “Mavrovo from Above”

Located in the western-central part of the country, the National Park of Mavrovo offers the highest mountain peaks in Macedonia. Not only do these mountains provide magnificent visual landscapes, they also prove to be the best skiing terrains on the Balkans. Mavrovo’s impressive forests contain more than 100 rare species of trees, and its rugged hilltops are rich in wild herbs and teas that can be easily collected by hand. The largest artificial lake in Macedonia is part of Mavrovo National Park. Due to its elevation, this mountain lake sometimes freezes over in winter. Abundant with the famous trout, Lake Mavrovo also makes for an excellent swimming and boating spot in the summer months.

Win-Win Society

Athens, Greece

The aim is, in line with the objectives set by the European Commission for Erasmus+ in the youth field, to develop and learn through mobility using non-formal and informal learning methods. We intend to teach young people from different countries how to live and create Together with immigrants, refugees and all socially vulnerable groups, discover ways to be self-sustaining and design products, services and jobs while being beneficial to the local communities. At the same time, we will learn about human rights and life values, discrimination and stereotypes, we will identify the cultural heritage of the place and its importance, learn about interculturalism, define and meet refugees, migrants and asylum seekers and we will plan how to live together: how to co-exist, to train together and to become active citizens and social entrepreneurs for the common good.
