Call for Participants 

Iris Group – Managing Diversity is looking for 7 participants from Georgia for the international youth exchange “Faces of Europe” taking place in Magdeburg, Germany on July 5-15, 2019.

The program is organized by five partner organizations from Czech Republic, Georgia, Portugal, Serbia and Georgia.  The youth exchange is financially supported by Erasmus+ and the Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Integration of the State of Saxony-Anhalt.

Topic of the Exchange
Europe | clichés and stereotypes | creativity | youth participation

The youth exchange “Faces of Europe” brings together young people aged 17-25 from five different countries within Europe. During the exchange, the young people will discuss their own identities and backgrounds, the meaning of clichés attributed to them (as individuals, students, residents of a certain country, young people, Europeans, etc.). Through activating and thought-stimulating methods they will be supported to reflect on and recognize what they want for themselves and for the groups they (feel like they) belong to, as well as what connects them with young people from completely different regional and cultural spaces. To make these (self-) experiences visible and to deal with them creatively, the young people will participate in workshops to document their time spent together (i.e. film/photo workshop).
