The youth exchange “There is a crack in everything: that’s where the light comes: moments of resilience is written and organized by the Italian association Artemide, financed by the European program Erasmus+. It will be held at the House Laboratory Cerquosino, run by Artemide association, a social eco-village located into the Elmo-Melonta’s natural park, near the city of Orvieto, Italy, from the 5th to the 13th of February 2018, it will involve 20 participants and 5 leaders from Italy, Bulgaria, Germany, Montenegro and Lebanon. Participants will have the possibility to experience life in nature with a low impact on the environment. Alongside the nature based experiential session, the exchange includes typical non-formal learning methods such as group works, workshops, simulations, reflections and excursions.



The main objective is to start up a process of personal growth through sharing a collective experience. The themes we have chosen for this exchange are social inclusion, active citizenship which strengthens the spirit of initiative of young people, their creativity and their entrepreneurship, solidarity and their ability to collaborate with and beyond the differences

By managing and sharing the path, laboratory activities, games of knowledge focused on the methodology of non formal education, the exchange “There is a crack in everything: that’s where the light comes: moments of resilience”, is a real simulation of active citizenship in order to provide participants with new tools useful to cope with certain aspects of their discomfort. The simulation is a true “active laboratory of needs”. Within the shape of an educational path the young will give their own creative and innovative contribution at everyday activities. A further objective is to ensure that the gap of difference and resistance to the new and different is less deep, to get to enable new models of inclusion, going against the logic racist, sexist and xenophobic.
