With Youth P.S. we create the context where we share theoretical and practical inputs, a space to rise competences in the fields of sustainability, media and we
produce a positive impact on local and global scale through an international campaign.
Steps of the project:
1- VISIBILITY AND FORMATION OF NATIONAL GROUPS: In this phase the organizations involved gives visibility to the project
promoting it through their media. Young people apply, than the organizations choose the national leader and the participants in agreement with the Italian coordinating organization and they book the tickets.
2- ADVANCED PREPARATORY VISIT (APV): The leaders of the national groups, the facilitators and project coordinator meet in Cortemilia in July to get to know the
location of the project, to talk about the needs of the participants, to define more in details the program; they choose the roles they will have during the exchange and the activities to be realized in national groups and through the online assignments during
in the "Preparation phase". They take care of the timing, of the organization of the practical and of the logistic aspects.
3- PREPARATION PHASE:
It will happen in 2 ways, there will be a national group preparation aimed to create 2 activities/workshops/presentations per group that will bring competences about aspects of the main topic (ex. global warming, recycling, climate change,
greenhouse effect, environmental poisoning, the impact on the environment of human consumption habits, strategies to rise the sustainability at personal, local, national and international level...) and an interactive presentation of the national culture for
the intercultural evening. The second way it's through some individual online assignments aimed to start knowing each other, approach the topic and prepare for the exchange.
4- THE EXCHANGE: During the exchange participants, leaders and facilitators work on rising awareness about the mentioned areas of the topic of sustainability; that happen while sharing the presentations/workshops
prepared in national groups and thanks to input and practical activities in international groups delivered by the facilitators and by the leaders.
participants learn how to create reportages, promotional videos, take pictures and edit images, than they start creating an international campaign aimed to promote sustainability.
5- POST EXCHANGE PHASE: you will be asked to write a testimonial about the experience, fill-in an evaluation form and contribute to the CAMPAIGN while promoting it and while creating
videos, pictures, images to be used in the campaign. This last point can be organized in national team or individually.
