Intercambio juvenil “Helios” en Bolonia. 6 participantes!

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.

Young Innovators Competition, deadline 31 Julio 2014!

The Young Innovators Competition seeks for 18-30 year old entrepreneurs from around the world with social start-ups which use open source technologies for disaster management. This could include disaster preparedness, early warning, emergency communication and response, and recovery from natural disasters.Image

Often, the most vulnerable areas and communities which have the hardest time preparing for and recovering from natural disasters are also the poorest parts of a country. For these areas, open source technologies can prove the ideal solutionin disaster and emergency situations, as they are inexpensive, adaptable and scalable across different circumstances.

Natural disasters, floods, earthquakes, volcanoes, storms and epidemics, and other forms of natural disasters pose a growing threat in terms of both frequency and the levels of damage associated with them. Disasters, in addition to causing death and injury, can destroy infrastructure and shatter communities, displacing people and devastating economies. As human populations rise in numbers and density, and as the effects of global warming cause more frequent and powerful natural disasters, these risks are only set to increase.

We urgently need new tools to prepare for, respond to and recover from natural disasters on this increased scale. The tools we need could include communication technologies, teaching tools, new equipment to save lives during a disaster, and new tools to help clean up, recover and rebuild after the event.

Open source technologies such as 3D printing, UAVs, Raspberry Pi, Arduino, and other open source computer programs and systems could hold the key to providing solutions in the poorest and most vulnerable areas, and are already a crucial element of the emergency management systems of many countries, as they strengthen the capacities of communities threatened by disaster.

The current generation of young social entrepreneurs, with their ambition, creativity and innovative mindset is perfectly placed to develop these ideas. Plus, a focus on open source tools is a call to a new tech-savvy generation since the technology is created as a collaborative effort in which programmers improve upon the code and share the changes with the community.

In addition, we are also looking for innovators who have ideas for taking the iconic technologies of the community of do it yourself inventors, creators and designers known as maker culture and applying them to saving lives, in combination with low cost, low entry barrier technologies to help reach the most vulnerable communities around the world.

The closing date for entries in this challenge is July 31st 2014.

Two winners will be selected per challenge, and will receive up to USD 10,000 of seed funding, in addition to mentorship, dedicated workshops and an opportunity to showcase at the InnovationSpace of ITU Telecom World 2014 in Doha, Qatar.


Check ideas.itu.int for our challenge brief and tell us about your start-ups and business plans. We’ll be running a number of challenges throughout the year, partnering with leaders in the innovation economy, and focusing on the hottest technology topics, so keep an eye on the platform and on our Facebook page, keep your ideas coming, and maybe we’ll see you in Qatar.

Resumen de experiencias de “EU in Parliament”, Braila, Rumanía.

Durante la segunda quincena de mayo de 2014 participamos en el training sobre democracia participativa ”EU in Parliament” en la ciudad de Braila (Rumania), organizado por la Asociación Pro Democracia.



Durante diez días, los miembros enviados por la Asociación Mundus – Un mundo a tus pies,  junto con miembros de otras asociaciones de Málaga y Turquía, asistimos a sesiones relacionadas con el sistema electoral europeo.

Durante nuestra estancia aprendimos nuevos métodos de expresión como el Photo Voice o Mindmaps e hicimos nuevos amigos, estando inmersos en un aprendizaje intercultural continuo. Hemos realizado todo tipo de actividades: Flashmob en centro de la ciudad, una fiesta tradicional, una visita a un parque natural, simulacros electorales, etc.


El día “fuerte” fue el 25 de mayo, día de las elecciones, en el que en grupos recorrimos los colegios electorales de Braila observando como se desarrollaba el procedimiento electoral, entrevistando a los electores y realizando un reportaje.

Antes de conocer Rumania apenas sabíamos de su cultura, su gente y tradiciones. Los días que pasamos en Braila nos dimos cuenta de lo mucho que nos parecemos españoles y rumanos. Son gente muy amable que siempre te acoge con los brazos abiertos y una sonrisa en la boca.


Esta experiencia nos ha enseñado a ser tolerantes, abiertos de mente y ver las cosas desde otros puntos de vista, y nos ha ayudado  a mejorar como personas.

Xavi, activo tras su EVS, nos cuenta su experiencia como representante de Mundus en Bolonia!

“Ya hace un año que volví de mi EVS en Romania. Desde entonces no me he sacado de la cabeza la idea de compartir mi experiencia con la gente joven de mi pueblo y que ellos  puedan tener la oportunidad de experimentar una aventura como la que yo viví, ya que pienso que algo tan bueno como esto, no puedo guardármelo para mí solo.


Me puse en contacto con Alberto, coordinador en mi EVS y presidente de Mundus. Sabiendo que me había ayudado mucho anteriormente, pensé que quizá lo podría hacer de nuevo, y así fue. Le explique mis inquietudes y no tardo la respuesta por su parte, me propuso algo de lo que le estoy muy agradecido, la posibilidad de crear algo así como un “altavoz” de Mundus en mi zona. Me pareció una oportunidad increíble para poder tirar adelante con mi idea.


De momento vamos avanzando con esto, sin prisa pero sin pausa. Hace escasamente un mes, desde Mundus me propusieron hacer un PBA (Partnership-building Activity) en Bolonia, para que de esta manera pudiera aprender y entender un poco más como funciona todo el proceso de participar en un proyecto desde zero.


Mi experiencia en Bolonia, fue increíble. Compartí una semana con gente de muchos países diferentes y con los que conecte desde el primer día. Llegué a Italia nervioso, pero a la vez ansioso por empezar. Los nervios rápido se fueron ya que me di cuenta que aunque todos allí éramos muy diferentes, todos teníamos las mismas inquietudes y ganas de hacer las cosas bien.


El primer día presenté mi idea de proyecto a todos ellos y fue muy gratificante el ver que a todos ellos les pareciera una iniciativa muy buena. Me ofrecieron su apoyo y ayuda para lo que necesitara. Eso me dio una fuerza y una confianza muy grande para seguir adelante. Aprendí muchas cosas nuevas, nos hablaron mucho del nuevo programa Erasmus+, hicimos actividades para fomentar la creación de  vínculos entre las diferentes organizaciones y sobretodo compartimos la experiencia de cada uno con los demás.


Una de las actividades, fue la de dividirnos en pequeños grupos y empezar a planificar un proyecto desde cero, desarrollarlo paso a paso y pensando en todo; los objetivos, las actividades a realizar, los posibles problemas que nos encontraríamos al escribirlo, etc. Esto me sirvió muchísimo para entender un poco más por donde empezar con todo. El proyecto con el que trabajó mi grupo, casualmente fue con el que yo estoy trabajando, se titulaba “Youth Exchange without barriers.”


Aparte de trabajo también tuvimos mucho tiempo libre. Conocimos Bolonia gracias a unas guías muy simpáticas (tres chicas polacas que estaban realizando un voluntariado en Bolonia). Hicimos un juego por la ciudad, y gracias a esto pudimos descubrir los rincones más bonitos y curiosos de esta.


Fue una experiencia muy muy positiva y la cual me esta ayudado mucho a seguir adelante con más ilusión y ganas que nunca!”
