The participants will be faced with the topic of transport, environment, climate change and sustainability. They will get a deep insight into the situation of the other European countries that are partners in this exchange, which will let them, compare the situation with their home country. Therefore, participants can reflect on the similarities and differences in their realities, so they can better understand the context we live in as a baseline. The working methods will be based on non-formal education principles. There will be diverse indoor and outdoor workshops. Starting from introduction games, team-building games, lectures, brainstorming activities on various related issues that will be addressed, study visits, movie nights, reflections as individual and group work, as well as learning by doing in outdoor settings such as: riding bicycles in the city, bicycles repairing and revitalizing, thematic artistic expression on public spaces, mural painting, etc.). Participants can join and/or rotate in different program groups focused on digital activism, bicycle repairs or artistic expression. For further details, check the information pack!
Good news to get ready for the autumn 2022!
This year during the European Mobility Week we will share the positive vibrations on the urban cycling as topic along with our partners from Bulgaria, Croatia, Denmark, Greece and Italy.
Urban communities and city centres are overloaded with cars, traffic jams, congestion and pollution and public spaces are shrinking, because of the passive public authorities that remained stuck with the car-centric concepts of urban design coming back from the 70s of the 20th century when the cities were built to secure fast flow of cars. The urban designers in the modern era have shifted their focus and have become people-centric meaning they are designing the cities primarily for the people and not for cars resulting with closing city centres for cars, reducing parking spaces, expansion of green spaces, pedestrian areas, bike lanes, promoting sustainable transport and making the cities more livable.
The aim is to promote the bicycle as a means of urban transport that is saving money, is available for each member of the local community, is highly cheap, that fights global pollution while helping to live a more healthy life. At the same time, we would like to inspire young people to become active at home in their organizations in promoting cycling as one way to protect the environment and foster active citizenship of young people.
