About the project

The main aim of “Cycling Life” youth exchange is to raise awareness and create space for learning and sharing experiences among youngsters coming from Hungary, Italy, Netherlands and Spain. During this project youngsters will discuss and raise awareness on inter-cultural understanding, protective environment, healthy lifestyle. We will be using social media tools to promote this project among wide audience, by sharing stories, videos and pictures. The objectives we will try to achieve are as follows:

1. Fostering mutual understanding and inter- cultural learning, thus minimizing stereotypes and prejudices
2. Learning blogging, graphical designing, video and poster production
3. Raising awareness on environmental issue
4. Empowering participants with knowledge and competencies to actively take part in society
5. Experience education through non-formal methods
6. To promote Erasmus+ programme opportunities that participants can use in their future

As an outcome of our project we expect that participants will use the new skills and competences to increase their intercultural sensitivity, become more tolerant and respectful toward other European cultures and become more active in their communities and organizations, make choices for healthy lifestyle and become active in protecting the environment.
The working methods will include:
– cultural animation (ice-breaking games and energizers),
– team-building activities,
– exchange of experiences,
– presentations by both participants and guests,
– practical workshop on refurbishing bikes
– practical workshop on decorating your bicycle
– discussion platforms,
– non-formal education activities (including learning-by-doing activities and creative exercises such as simulation games and creative thinking activities),
– cultural activities,
– new media skills
– on-going evaluation.
