Shared Spaces: Co- creating inclusive enviroments for migrants and local communities

Shared Spaces recognizes the challenges that young migrants face when trying to integrate themselves into the host society and the critical role community-based organizations play in promoting youth participation and commitment to local activities. The project aims to bring solutions and support to fostering a sense of belonging among youth from diverse backgrounds in the local community through activities and events.

The initial phase of our project was dedicated to comprehensive research aimed at understanding the complexities of the issues and the specific needs of our target groups. This involved conducting focus groups with young migrants and educators, distributing surveys to gather insights from young people, and interviewing youth workers aligned with our project’s objectives.

Then, everyone got to try kayaking and test their balance. We had yummy Polish food for lunch and sweet watermelon for dessert. Towards the end of the day, we had a special dance session where everyone could have fun moving their bodies and feeling happy. It was a day to enjoy nature, try new things, and have a great time together.

Sokoliki mountains, August 2023.

The enchanting campsite "Tabor pod Krzywą" in the Polish Sokoliki mountains, hosted a 4-day outdoor event titled "Embrace, Explore, Evolve." Our mornings began with serene meditation sessions and invigorating exercises. Throughout the day, we embarked on exhilarating hikes, delved into the world of rock climbing, collaborated on preparing dinners, and concluded our evenings with warm conversations and melodious singing around the fire under the starlit sky. The event offered participants a precious opportunity to disconnect from urban life, unwind amidst nature's embrace, introspect in solitude, and forge new companionships.


Narratives from Nature. Janowice Wielkie, Poland, 2022

“Narratives from nature” it's an outdoor project that took place in the Janowice Wielkie region of Poland between 15-29 September 2022. 

🏕The main aim of the project was to promote environmental awareness, sustainability, intercultural cooperation and tolerance through reflecting on our relationship with the natural world.

🎒This project provided the opportunity for 36 participants from programme and partner countries to explore a region of Poland that stands out for its natural beauty and ecological diversity. Through the frame of storytelling, participants explored the local environment and each other's cultures in an outdoor setting.

🇵🇱During the two weeks of project participants gained outdoor skills, visited local places of historical and cultural importance to explore the traditions of the region and went for a multi-day hike in the Rudawski National Park and the Giant Mountains. Through experimenting with different methods of storytelling participants created their own stories by the end of the project. In those stories they reflected on the experience of spending two weeks outdoors with an international group and shared their unique experiences.

This youth exchange was implemented by Logos, Lernlabor, AMITIE FRANCO RUSSE LANGUEDOC “AFR” and was financed by Erasmus+ programme.

Our Carpathian Stories. Lviv-Dzembronya-Babyn, Ukraine, 2021

Our Carpathian stories was an almost 2 weeks long Youth exchange, where we used outdoor education and hiking in mountains to develop and share stories. We started from our favourite Білий Слон camping and went to beautiful (and very cold at that moment) Carpathians. We hiked for 4 days and met local people, animals and of course nature.

We visited Shyptsi and Rebra mountains, cooked on the fire and told each other different stories.
It was a challenging but unique experience for all participants - those who were on their first hike and those who are experienced.
When we came down we learned more about storytelling, got to know locals and especially babushkas and did rafting!

This youth exchange was implemented by Logos, Kompetenta Unga, Lernlabor, European Integration Group, Karas, Amazing Educaiton and was financed by Erasmus+ programme

Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange. May-November, 2020

From June till November Polish citizens and residents had the opportunity to take part in the Debate Exchange project. It was a great opportunity to participate in an exchange which is taking place in virtual space – on an online platform.

Debate Exchange –It’s not only a great possibility to break out boredom. You have also a chance to discuss important subjects with people all around the world without leaving your home. You can meet interesting people, share your point of view and improve or even get new skills such as speaking, active listening or debating abilities.

Each participants need to complete at least one cycle. Cycles consist of following parts:

-          Training (Group members are agreeing on a time of training which is leading by a team leader.)

-          Debate

-          Post-debate Dialogue session (followed discussion on debate’s matters, observations and experience)

Beside priceless knowledge and experience, participants are rewarded with EU certificates.

That’s what our participants told about their experience:

Kajetan:

Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange is a great opportunity to share your ideas in a multicultural environment. You don’t need to be a perfect speaker. All you need is motivation and an open mind.

Maria :

Participating in Debate Exchange first of all was a unique opportunity to step out of my “worldview bubble” as it gave me the chance to hear the opinion and follow the way of reasoning of people who were influenced by different upbringing, culture, religion etc. I found this experience enriching due to the fact that the preparation for the debate (in my case the ethicality of eating meat) simply broadened my mind. I fully recommend this online exchange”

Mission Impossible. Poland – Lithuania, 2020

From 15th until 21st November, 2020 we implemented our hybrid Youth Exchange: Mission Impossible. The hybrid youth exchange took place online and offline at the same time. Some of participants gathered together in Poland and some gathered in Lithuania. Other joined online.

Thanks to our partners from Lithuania Stovykla „Draugai“ and the donors Jaunimo Reikalų Departamentas we gathered 20 young people from Lithuania and Poland, both on-line and off-line in Poznań; who spend 5 days exchanging ideas, experiences and having a lot of fun.

The participants had the chance to learn a little bit more about the concept of social business, to get the awareness of the social problems that both societies, Polish and Lithuanian, are facing nowadays; and to propose real solutions to those through their own social business projects.

Moreover, we had the chance to present our countries through creative presentations, music, legends and quizzes in our Lithuanian and Polish intercultural sessions.

Once again we would like to congratulate our participants for their commitment and amazing job and to our partners as well as donors for making it possible to implement such as amazing initiative, especially taking into account the current difficulties we are all facing.

a:pART project

Project a:pART will create collaborative audiovisual Art-Tandems between Ukrainian and German artists in the fields of music, performing and visual arts, spoken word, installation, video, dance. Each Ukrainian participant will get a pair of a German one (and other way around), so they could synergistically work in Tandem online for a month (15.10-15.11.2020). (more…)

When neighbours become friends. Poland-Lithuania, 2020

In August 2020, 8 young people from all around Poland have taken part in an innovative and interesting project, an exchange of cultures online with a Lithuanian partner.

The first day was mainly to get the participants more aware of the program and the common rules of the project, but it was the 'first contact' between the two groups, which was interesting to see.

The second day started with the Language exchanges that they would continue doing until the end of the project, a short and sweet way of learning some more about the language of the other group.

The third day was one of the first intercultural night, in which the Lithuanian side shared some valuable information about their country.

The most important activity during the 4th day was the one about the national fairytales, both teams taking a more modern approach regarding some very old tales.

The fifth day was marked by another presentation, this time the Poles presented their country and some valuable information.

The last two days were more about the City Challenge that was exhausting yet fun for everyone involved. Videos were created, great moments were shared between the groups and a final heartfelt goodbye on the last day from both groups with a promise of both groups meeting sometime down the line.

All in all, a great experience for the youngsters, filled with great achievements, laughs and unforgettable experiences!
