One of the last shots of the Spin Dots-Points in the Municipal Training Project. ” The international meeting that took place from 24 to 28 August 2017 took place in the wonderful setting of the De Sanctis castle in Roccacasale (AQ). The project, backed by the European Community in the thirtieth year of the Erasmus Plus, focused on building a structured dialogue, empowerment and the concept of active citizenship.
The simple, but unexcused goal is to bring young people closer to politics and institutions by expanding the awareness, knowledge, practices and values of active youth citizenship, starting with the knowledge of the territory they live in.
At the meeting, created by the Municipality of Roccacasale in collaboration with the Open Space Association, the United Games Hungarian Association, Tdm 2000 Italia, UPE and other partners. An active participation of about one hundred children (18 to 30 years), 76 coming from Italy and 24 from Hungary, active in social and politically committed, curious about culture and bound to their own territory.
A final result more than positive.

LOCAL NEWSPAPER IS WRITING ABOUT LAST EUROSUD ACTIVITY
Local newspaper writing about our last Erasmus activity involving local schools and municipality.
“INERNATIONAL YOUTH EXCHANGE 3R”, SALONIKI
International youth exchange 3R gave opportunity to EUROSUD young activist the possibility to share experience in the field of creativity.
The exchange aimed to offer an opportunity for young people to combine entrepreneurial skills and handicrafting techniques and learn how to improve their own lives and also serve as good example for their peers.
Moreover the project aimed to encourage Young People in revitalizing the cultural heritage and using them as a tool for putting their skills into business, thus reducing the level of unemployment and sense of despair. This will help not only the participants from rural areas to find comprehensive ways of entrepreneurship, but also help in rehabilitation and preservation of cultural heritage of participating countries.
Some of the participant’s feedback :
“I was told about this project by a friend already some time ago but I actually I have decided recently to participate in it. Maybe the reason is that now I’m in such a time in my life in which I really need it. Now I’m in the moment of my self-development and waiting for a change in my life. I’m working on myself now, I finally have
time to get deeper into myself, to participate in some handcraft workshops, to get to know myself better, to change some of my “wrong” behaviours…and it makes me feel really well.”
“I wanted to try something new, to get some new skill. I was thinking to find my own style. I got informed about this project from my friend who invited me to join it.
I thought ” I can learn something new, get new skills, meet new people.” Besides the topic seemed extremely interesting to me: linking manual activities like designing, sewing, doing make-up with self-expression. I was always looking for unusual clothes not to show off but to express myself by what I wear. Although I have never tried to transform clothes by myself I always wanted to learn and I would like to start now. I miss some courage and manual skills but I have a lot of ideas already: -) I would like to cut some dresses in an interesting way or I also have some ideas for the jeans jackets – how to transform them. But I have never done it. I was also a bit afraid of trying for the first time, of damaging something.”

EUROSUD LOGBOOK: “YOUNG PARTICIPATION STRONG TOMORROW INVESTMENT” IN ANKARA, TURKEY
“Young Participation Strong Tomorrow Investment” KA3 Structured Dialogue in Ankara from 19th till 25th of April.
The project started the 20th morning in the lobby room of the Hotel: we had some little games to get to know each other and learn the names. After lunch we were split into groups and had the task to collect the ideas and present our organization .
It was interesting to Discovery how other organizations work in different European countries. After dinner, some of us had got the opportunity to meet Friends that knew that live in Ankara and it was unbelivable, at least for me (Alessandro), marvellous.
The second day was also about knowing one another better and, dividend in different groups from the previous ones (every time we were split in different groups and that was great), se discussero about how people can be active citizens in their society, youngsters in particular: some very importante ideas came out: to take part in NGOs, get truthful information regarding Fairtrade products.
The activities went on and at 9:30 p.m., after dinner, we were able to introduce Lithuania, Italy and Hungary to the others: for that purpose we proposed to play “Ruba bandiera” (great fun), a quiz with two groups with some questions in Italian culture and offer some good brought from Italy: on the following days participants said that they appreciated it!
On the third day five new groups prepared a play and act showing daylylife experiences in which there were some discriminations: women unfair salary, women abuses at workplaces, disabled people not respected at school, an immigranted girl ill treated at her dance lessons, anche immigranted injured boy with no healthcare right, and more. In the afternoon we visited Mustafà Kemāl mausoleum. The cultural night of 22nd was with Croatia, Bulgaria and Slovakia: interesting and full of information.
On the 23rd we, again in groups, went out to interview at least five people about whether they knew or not about Erasmus+ and if they were willing to bè or already were entrepeneur: most of the groups did this task in Turkish (there was a Turkish in 4/5 groups), because just few people of the interviewed could speak
The afternoon was dedicared to make up and then present, in teams, a distopy based in discriminations and injustice: a lot to learn, for example, a world where women had been created Just for men’s pleasures and were treated with no respect. In the other hand, we, again new teams, thought about a utopian society in which there was just fairnes: we made up anche anthem (and some sangue it ☺), the money was hugs foto some, educational was passed through kisses sexual orientation was free, even houses were built in clouds, and more.
In the afternoon we presented the projects and we got a task: to earn some money (starting from 10 lira), in teams, however we wanted: most of the groups decided to have a little exibitions in the streets (we have got videos and photos of this, too) and it worked. At the end of the day it was the turn of Macedonia and Turkey, with also two special guests: a famous Turkish musician who player some traditional songs and a Turkish dancer Who thaugt is some tradizional dancings: interesting experience.
In the 24th, last day, we had a free day, to go sightseeing and know Ankara better (mosques, etc.). We spent the last night more or less together, talking and dancing, getting the travel refund, and when it came morning ed had to say goodbye, and that was hard.
The 25th almost everyone travelled back home, thinking about something new.
We would like to thank EUROSUD organization for this opportunity!

“EUROPE MEETS EUROMED#EME17″ IN CROATIAN NEWS
Today (27th of March) Croatian local news portal is talking about Europe Meets Euromed#EME17.
This project has changed my way of thinking and a way of seeing the world. During eight days these people made a very big impression on me. Apart from them, many thanks I owe to organizers of this project and I want you to be aware of changes you make by doing this projects, both in society and in the world. In any school and in any university you will not have the opportunity to learn what I learned during those eight days, or gain experience that I have gained. ~
Change begins with you!

“YOUNG PROFESSIONALS! SAY NO TO BULLIES!!!” IN POLAND
In this report, I will talk about the project “Young professionals! Say no to bullies!!!”, implemented in Poland focusing on various forms of bullying and their prevention.
The project took place in Poland and it was divided in two activities
The first part took place in Lublin from 10th to 17th November and the second part in Lanckorona from 14th to 21st February. I have participated in both parts of the project, so I could make a global evaluation about this experience.
The first step was more theoretical and included a series of seminars; the second one, however, was a training and gave us practical techniques to prevent and to fight bullying.
People from different countries took part in this project (Armenia, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Egypt, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, UK and Ukraine).
Thanks to the comparison with people with different experiences and cultures, I have expanded my point of view.
Today, bullying is a recurring issue in a lot of countries and I was struck by the almost total lack of legislations about it. During the project, we have evaluated the different profiles of bullying, that affects all age and social context.
“Bullying”, in fact, is a word that contains so many definitions within it. Depending on how it happens, some examples are:
• sexual harassment
• discriminations based on sex, race or religion
• discriminations based on disability.
While in the first part of the project we talked about the theme only at the theoretical level, in the second one the meetings were characterized by practical activities of various kinds.
All the activities we done involved the whole group and experts on this topic helped us.
The first activities were to brainstorm and to compare personal knowledge on the topic.
After this first step, there were role-plays in which were represented various types of bullying. Depending by the scene, each of us proposed a solution to prevent or to solve the specific situation.
These phases were accompanied by the vision of movies and videos.
Classroom activities were alternated by interesting visits in the area that helped the group to find a union.
We documented the conclusions of our work with videos made during the project and with paperwork like billboards.
The results obtained at the end of the project are valued in terms of personal and professional growth. In my opinion the topic, which we have talked about in a serious and proactive way during the project, was very interesting and I am sure it will affect my (personal and professional) path. I would like to thank EUROSUD organization for this opportunity.
I attach to this report some photos that represent the project.

FIRST DAY OF: “EUROPE MEETS EUROMED #EME17”
After a long journey, the participants form all destinations including: Jordan, Palestine, Malta, Croatia and France finally arrived to Italy in the beautiful fishermen’s city of Bisceglie. This morning we kicked off the “EUROPE MEETS EUROMED 2017 #EME17” project with some icebreakers to learn each other’s names. After the first rounds of just saying your name and country, we increased the level by adding a movement and making all the participants repeat these names combined with the correct movements, which created some funny situations. After the initial introduction we went a little more into depth with a workshop called “human bingo”, this way we learned something more about the hidden skills of our participants, we found out who the musicians and the daredevils are amongst us. To get to know each other even better we talked about the expectations of this projects by discussing our hopes, fears and contributions. Around noon we gathered to enjoy a delicious lunch prepared by our very own chef; Vito. In the afternoon we went to the city centre to participate in the treasure hunt of the old city of Bisceglie. Five teams roamed the streets of Bisceglie with the same goal; to get all the answers to the questions of the quest. After a few hours the winner (team 2 AKA “Tigers with short legs”) arrived first and took all their glory. After dinner we all looked at the pictures of that afternoon and enjoyed some karaoke to end this wonderful day in beauty.
