Ethnic tolerance and equal opportunities for young Europeans through folklore and intercultural dialogue

ABOUT THE ORGANISATION:
The activities of the Foundation focuses on creativity and expression of children in the field of native folklore, education through creativity and play, communication and friendship through culture.

ABOUT THE PLANNED PROJECT:
The project is tasting a model for building sustainable base attitudes of tolerance through young people, as a prerequisite for the complete civic presence through Intercultural dialogue and participation in joint games activities in the field of cultural heritage of young people from diverse national and ethnic origins. Education in a new type of culture by presenting multiethnic European diversity.

The aim of the project is to promote democratic and civic participation of young people from different countries through:
- Upbringing and education of adolescents and young people from different nationalities and ethnic minorities, in tolerance, understanding and social inclusion of marginalised groups.
- Intercultural dialogue through games activities and creative expression in the field of folklore and traditions of the minority groups in a pan-European context.

Activities and dialogue revolve around proverbs and sayings in use within national and ethnic groups in our partner countries to collect practices and examples as models featuring folk wisdom and European values.

We plan to hold the "In a good head, a hundred hands" competition of proverbs, sayings and riddles to showcase folklore patterns in the partner countries.

The target group is adolescents and young people from primary and secondary schools and art colleges in several European countries. Building on research activities to understand and tackling problems related to integration, tolerance and marginalisation in Europe.

Educators and pedagogues play a key role in addressing those challenges. The project will deliver a targeted training to ensure their capacity by sharing experience and European successful practices.

Expression of interest to be send not later than 7th August 2020.
