Venue: Emilia-Romagna – Italy

Dates of the youth exchange:  18-28 August 2014

Participants per country: 5 + 1 group leader

Age profile: 18-25 years old – under 30 for the group leader. Gender balance. Interest in environmental issues and artistic skills (e.g. movie-making, photo-making…)




Financial conditions for the youth exchange:

Food, accommodation and activities are 100% covered by the project. The travel costs are 100% covered up to a maximum of 170 Euros/person. No participation fees requested.

Project description:

To be able to respect the environment it is neccessary to know it and to live it, in a way of admiring its beauty, importance and its value in vary points of view. Even just doing an activity outside, taking a walk or being taught by the experts on the environment awareness could raise our sensibility and our desire to become more active. In addition adapting a behaviour which is respectful to the environment is helping your health. To convince people to adopt this kind of lifestyle it is neccessary to emphasise this benefit.

Eventually we realised that the society we live in (paricularly our local community) is not much sensible to the environment issues, eventhough all of us are involved and responsible for the future of our planet. However we, the youth, should realise our responsibility because it is us who inherits this planet and that is why we should solve the problems in a long-term. Therefore our role consist of two approaches: we will change our everyday habits to be more eco-friendly and make people aware of the environment problems. Because our biggest mistake would be just awaiting, not acting, not taking one´s responsibility of the own social role. Therefore the Helios project is structured as a path on which the participants learn in a non formal way. They face the environmental challenges and confront with the relationship which binds their everyday life with the environment. This learning path will help the participants develop an awareness of the topic in a way that they will feel supported and stimulated in everyday life to act its way. This project aims to create instruments for the participants to become more active on a local level as well as on the european one, in a way that they will be able to fully understand their social role.

The project is especially aimed at supporting the active citizenship of the youths in general and their European citizenship in particular but also to foster the mutual understanding of the youths coming from different states. The participants express their own opinion and reflect their own nation and culture through meetings, games, group workings debates and intercultural events.

The goal of the project is to reflect how different lifestyles can protect or harm the environment. We want to stimulate a green awareness, critic and responsible to reflect our habits and ideas, to talk about problems of today, to have ideals, to understand European policies, to speak about our lifestyles and to observe the everyday life of the other people



Los gastos de alojamiento y comida estarán cubiertos durante todo el proyecto, así como el importe de los vuelos con un máximo de 170 euros. 

Los participantes tan solo deberán  hacerse socios de Mundus (40 eur/año) con el derecho a participar en todas las actividades que Mundus organice.

Vacantes EVS en Croacia, en organización IKS!

The mission of the Association IKS is: Developing community by strengthening civil society, promoting information technology and socio-economic empowerment of marginalized citizens. Strategic guidelines of our association for the period 2012-2014 are: 1. Promote volunteer work to improve communities; 2. Development of Civil Society; 3. Social entrepreneurship and employment; 4. Organizational DevelopmentIf you want to know more about us, you should check out our web page: http://www.udrugaiks.hr/ Anyway, we have a lot of experience in EVS projects and we want to carry that experience even further. So here are some basics concerning this project.

The project would start in September 2014 and it would last for one year. The main theme are puppets and puppet theatre. Volunteers would pruduce puppets, make shows for children in our local community and make videos for the “Puppet TV”.

Here’s the summary of the project:

With the help of the staff and local volunteers at Association IKS, EVS volunteers will make hand puppets (Muppet puppet) for educational purposes, they will also prepare scenarios and scenary for the Puppet theatre. The puppets will present an amusing and innovative way to transfer new knowledge and messages to children on topics such as: human rights, children’s rights, gender equality, women’s rights, antidiscrimination, culture and similar. The puppet/doll is a friend of the child with the help of which they analyse the world around them and within themselves. It makes a significant impact on the child and many times the puppet has a stronger influence than that of the authority/teacher. Puppet plays develop children’s curiosity and creative thinking and unobtrusively encourage their own expression. EVS volunteers will use the puppets they make to record them and produce Puppet videos that we will put on our YouTube chanel.


The EVS volunteers will, in an existing production workshop in IKS, make hand-made dolls mostly from locally produced raw and recycled materials, visually tailored to the target group of children and will cover all aspects of receiving and processing new information.
In addition, EVS volunteers will learn Croatian language and lead creative workshops in our Community centre for children and adults. Also, they would have enough free time to enjoy beautiful city of Petrinja and its nature.

The city has a high number of students officially not registered in the city as inhabitants but living most of the year here in fact. Because of this the real number of inhabitants goes beyond 400,000 people, while the percentage of its young population is over 50 percent.Image

Cluj-Napoca is the friendliest city towards foreigners, according to Eurostat. 96% of its inhabitants feel good in this city. Cluj-Napoca ranks among the top quarter cities related to how easy it is to find a job.

The ‘European Youth Capital’ (EYC) is the title awarded to a European city for the period of one year, during which it will be given the chance to showcase, through a multi-faceted programme, its youth-related cultural, social, political and economic life and development. The EYC initiative encourages the implementation of new ideas and innovative projects, with regard to active participation of young people in society, and seeks to present a role model for the further development of youth policies in other European municipalities. The title is awarded by the European Youth Forum through a competition of programmes open for cities from 49 countries.

Cluj-Napoca will be the European Youth Capital in 2015. The year will fluctuate with several key moments, peaks completed in between with several hundred small actions, a permanent communication activity and public space presence. The European Youth Capital is not just about events but also about the city “wearing” the European Youth Capital. This is why the Capital will be present in the public space, in coffee shops, restaurants, public institutions.


Objectives: the project has as main objective the personal development of the volunteers, including growth in areas such as communication skills, deeper understanding of the concept of mutual acceptance and tolerance, time management skills, planning and organizing events, team-work related skills , creativity and innovation etc; at the same time at the community level, the project aims at promoting the active participation of youth in the community and creating a context that will offer chances for involvement for young people in Cluj.
