Look at the same and see different: come è andata?

“From 19th to 28th of August, we, participants from Studio Progetto, had the opportunity to take part in the
Youth Exchange “Look at the same… And see different“, in Arrouquelas, Rio Maior, Portugal. The hosting organization, “H2O” Associação de Jovens de Arrouquelas, with 26 years of history, hosted us in a camp and organized a program of activities that were connected with the topic, gender equality, financed and supported by Erasmus +.

The main objective was to bring together 60 young people from 11 different European countries: Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia and Spain, with diverse cultural backgrounds but with common interests to share knowledge and learn about the topic of gender equality, discrimination and social inclusion.

Also, this exchange has defined other objectives that are generally intertwined with the objectives of the Erasmus + program itself, namely: to explore gender equity and inequality in youth work realities; to explore sectoral policies that reflect and address the special needs of young people living in rural areas; to share non-formal learning activities and creative exercises for the roles of socially designated patterns of behavior; to promote the Erasmus + Program as a tool for gender equity and equality; to promote dialogue between participants from different countries in order to promote mutual understanding and tolerance; to increase young people’s knowledge about gender equality in different dimensions; to learn to respect each opinion and deconstruct stereotypes by conducting assessment and discussion with young people from other countries.

The Organization “H2O” also cooperates with the Non-Formal Education Center, located in the village of Marmeleira, which provided a game with the same topic as a project.

Quest’estate, abbiamo avuto l’opportunità di inviare un gruppo di partecipanti al progetto Erasmus+ ‘Look at the same and see different‘ ad Arroquelas, Rio Maior, in Portogallo.

Tra il 19 e il 28 agosto, abbiamo unito le forze con altre 10 nazioni per riflettere e creare attività focalizzate sull’uguaglianza di genere.

Il piccolo paese di Arroquelas ci ha accolto a braccia aperte, dimostrando l’ospitalità e l’umiltà che caratterizzano il popolo portoghese. Abbiamo avuto l’opportunità di immergerci nel loro stile di vita, condividere risate, idee e crescere insieme.

I partecipanti sono tornati a casa con un bagaglio culturale significativamente arricchito e con un sacco di nuove amicizie.

Look at the same and see different‘ non è stato solo un progetto, ma un’esperienza che ha ampliato le nostre prospettive e che rimarrà con noi per sempre.
