Brave New YOU - Reloaded aims at building capacities and trust among different youth communities to co-create together a more inclusive and open-minded Europe.
The project tackles the issues of hate speech and lack of participation of youth communities experiencing discrimination and exclusion. Through a process of capacity building, local and international activities, our youth workers, and youth organisations will develop competencies for reaching out to disadvantaged youngsters and communities. The project will empower these young people to become community leaders, to identify and deconstruct hateful narratives, and build more inclusive narratives for their communities.
Description of the event:
YEU International is opening a call for 5 facilitators for “Brave New You - Reloaded” youth exchange. The youth exchange will be held in Metlika, Slovenia between the 24th and 29th of September.
The youth exchange will serve for young people to test and analyse the tools and approaches developed during the project. These products were previously developed according to the input from partner organisations and their young people and youth workers, and address the topics of:
- Prejudice and discrimination against Roma people
- Gender based violence
- Homophobia and Transphobia
- Stereotypes and prejudice against rural youth
- Racism and racial discrimination
- Ethnic stereotyping and segregation
- Pollution and climate crisis
- Prejudice and discrimination against refugees and immigrants
During the event, young people will provide their feedback on the applicability of the tools in different contexts and start developing their recommendations on how to improve or adjust them, which will then be taken into account and will help experts in further adaptation of the tools and approaches.
The tools and approaches are mostly developed in the form of NFE activities that need to be incorporated in the youth exchange programme and adjusted to be either (preferably) experientially tested or reviewed by participants.
If selected, all the details including YEU Golden rules, YEU Code of Conduct, deadlines, tasks, and conditions will be stated in the contract between facilitators and YEU. Travel costs within travel costs limits and visa costs (if any) are covered by YEU 100%.
