This Spring, in Mitrovica, GAIA and friends will organize a youth exchange about urban permaculture, with the focus on gardening and food production. The Youth Exchange will gather 25 young people from Croatia, Albania, Serbia, Bulgaria and Kosovo, what means that this call is open only for young people who are residents of those countries (we are sorry for those who are not) and applying through organizations which are partners for this exchange: PVN Albania, VCV Serbia, VUK Croatia, CVS Bulgaria and GAIA Kosovo. It will take place from 25th of May until 2nd of June and will be organized in partnership with Down Syndrome Kosova in Mitrovica and the City Museum. communitygarden Why permaculture? Permaculture is a design system that uses ecological principles, which can be applied to organisations, communities and economies to create a more harmonious and sustainable system of relationships. Based on the ethical foundation of care for the earth, care for the people and fair share, permaculture shows us a way, inspired by ecological understanding and principles, to create beneficial relationships and work with nature to regenerate and restore land, communities and our relationship to both. With learning about permaculture and gaining practical and theoretical knowledge about its principles and designing, which are inspired by natural systems, we can learn about social connections and ways of creating sustainable, resilient societies. forster_community_garden   Urban permaculture? Half humanity now live in cities and they have large ecological and human effects on the planet. So how can permaculture food production be applied to our towns and cities? There are, in fact many techniques that allow urban dwellers to grow food the permaculture way.  Using permaculture design principles, we can transform our garden, roof top or balcony into a sustainable food-producing garden. We can also share land and create community gardens or initiate community supported agriculture (CSA). What will be happening? During this youth exchange we will explore possibilities for Mitrovica to develop urban garden and to include young people interested in environmental and social topics. We will do different workshops, games, discussions, movie projections, practical work in garden, visits to cultural and natural sites and so forth. Of course, we will learn and discuss about permaculture as well as local heritage, issues and exiting initiatives. We will also organize activities with the host organization and other partners in Mitrovica. Mitrovica_banner Mitrovica is located in the North of Kosovo, with a population of around 100.000. The city is geographically divided by the Ibar River, into a Northern and Southern part, then also with a strong ethnic division as well. What are the conditions for participation? Each partner organization will choose 4 participants and 1 group leader who already took part in similar activities. Previous experience in international youth gatherings (exchanges, seminars, workcamps…) is not required nor advantage, but we expect that participants are: ·         interested in urban gardening, permaculture and social inclusion ·         willing to get prepared before the youth exchange ·         willing to live sustainably and in an international community ·         willing to be actively included and contribute ·         young between 18 and 30, while group leaders can be older than 30. Practicalities Accommodation and food will be covered through the project. We will be accommodated in Mitrovica South, in the house of Down Syndrome Kosova, which offers different educational and creative activities for people with Down Syndrome. Some of the activities will be organized with the friends from the host organization. Food will be traditional, seasonal and vegetarian. Travel costs (only environmentally friendly means of transport) will be reimbursed after ALL ORIGINAL tickets are received by GAIA. permaculture-herb-spiral-e1398701750642 If you are interested to take part in this youth exchange, you should apply before 5th of April 2018. by sending you application form to communication@cvs-bg.org!

Another great news from the cinema world! From 19th till 25th February we will have the wonderful opportunity to enjoy the a colorful panorama оf the films honored with the Sofia City Award.

Production company Adela Media, with the financial support from Sofia municipality and the media partnership of BNT, is organizing Panorama of the films honored with the Sofia City Award.

The screenings of all the 15 movies which were awarded from 2002 till today will make these incredible films accessible to a wide audience and the society. In this way an extremely important event will be promoted as the annual award of the Sofia City Award for brilliant achievements in the field of cinema art.

Except the high artistic qualities and cultural message, the honored movies are also bringing to the attention of the audience the social problems and processes, which urged the authors to create them. At the same time, these movies are a kind of reflection of the dynamic and complicated period of our latest history, between 2000 and 2017. The panorama is an attempt for a different view on the things happening in Bulgaria – not through the facts, statistics or news emissions, but through the eyes of the artists.

A detailed program you can find here:

FestList_ENG_FestList_ENG-1

FestList_ENG_FestList_ENG-2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After the screenings, in a discussion with famous cinema critics, the public will have the opportunity to share their impressions and to meet the authors of the films.

The movies will be screened from 19th till 25th February at The Red House Centre for Culture and Debate. Free entrance.

We will be waiting for you!

The training course is the main activity of the Small Steps project aiming at increasing the capacity of 10 European organisations in becoming actors of change in their local environment and working more effectively and actively for a more inclusive and prejudice-free Europe.

With this TC, we intend to provide you – youth workers, leaders, and educators – with knowledge and skills essential to inform and run educational activities in your local communities and societies on the topics of stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination, and to react to discriminatory practices – both as an individual and as an organisation. One of the methods we will focus on is the Human Library.

_MG_3184

The training programme includes elements of both theory (what is discrimination, how to react to it), direct encounter with minorities (Human Library event), practice (practising intervention in situations of discrimination both as an individual and an organisation), and action planning (small-scale activities that you can do in order to prevent the growth of xenophobia and discrimination).

For whom?

The event will gather 28 participants from 9 European countries – activists and educators from Belgium, Bulgaria, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Poland, Slovenia, Spain, and Sweden. We believe that the TC will increase your self-confidence, make your work more efficient, and help you have a greater impact on the surrounding society and reality!

As the ideal participant you should:
- be interested in antidiscrimination issue and have some knowledge on this topic;
- be willing to take part in the project follow-up: organisation of a Human Library in your home country;
- come from one of the 9 above-mentioned project countries;
- be able to communicate well and work in English;
- with minimum age 18 (no maximum age);
- attend the whole course duration (there is no possibility to make exceptions).

The training will last 7 days. Arrival is foreseen on Thursday, 12th April 2018 before 3 p.m. Departure is on Wednesday, 18th April 2018 after 1 p.m.

Where?

The training will be held in Antwerp, Belgium – a charming city with a rich history. Participants will be accommodated in a comfortable and modern Hopper hostel close to the centre of Antwerp. Please note that the living conditions will be quite simple, and the rooms will be shared by 4-8 people.

Methods:

The working methods used will base on the principles of adult learning, creating a stress-free and motivating environment where the human brain has a full capacity to learn. You will often work in smaller groups in order to achieve best results. All the methods will encourage active participation, creativity, initiative, and responsibility for one’s own learning process.

Certificates:

You will be awarded with a training completion certificate, issued by Service Civil International, as well as with Youthpass certificate.

451-Service Civil International SCI

Financial conditions:

The food and accommodation of the participants will be fully covered. Reimbursement of the travel tickets will be 100% up to the maximum amounts indicated in the rules of the Erasmus+ programme after the receipt of original documents. Maximum travel reimbursement amounts: 100-499 km = 180 euro, 500-1999 km = 275 euro. We encourage you to use environmentally friendly transport (bus, train, car sharing) when possible.
