My Nationality is Mankind - Youth Exchange in Russia

Time: 15 Jan - 23 Jan 2019

Main organizer: Föreningen Framtidståget, Stockholm

Financing: Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union

Description of the youth exchange:

This Youth Exchange is about promoting peace and intercultural dialogue among young people. We will be 30 young people aged 18-30 from Russia, Slovakia, Finland, Sweden, Egypt and Morocco, who will meet in Russia.

Topics that we plan to explore are peace, diversity, inclusion, intercultural dialogue, stereotypes, prejudices and conflict-resolution. Also, we will be happy to explore topics that will be of your interest.

“My Nationality is Mankind” is based on non-formal education methods which means that we will be learning from each other through team-building activities, role plays, games, group work & discussions, acting exercises, photo competition, etc. The programme will also include evening activities such as intercultural evenings and game nights.

Conditions of Participation:

  • Participation in the youth exchange is free of charge (meals and accommodation will be covered by the project budget)

  • The youth exchange will take place in the educational and cultural centre “ETNOMIR” in the kaluga region, which is located 90 km from Moscow and is surrounded by forests and fields.

  • We will be accommodated in a hotel that is called “Russian House”, which is located on the territory of Etnomir. Each room accommodates 4 people and has its own bathroom.

  • Travel costs are reimbursed within a maximum reimbursement amount which is 225 EUR for participants from Sweden, which means that participants are asked to buy their own tickets and then get reimbursement via bank transfer after the end of the project upon receipt of original copies of their travel documentation.

    If you are unable to pay for your own tickets, please contact Framtidståget and we will assist you in that.
