Description

We are happy to announce “Culture.World.We.” youth encounter, the second edition of the “Culture.World.Me.”, which took place in November 2015 in Germany.

“Culture.World.We.” is a youth exchange on the topic of human rights which will take place in Lviv, Ukraine. Dates: 26 July – 3 August

Through exploring cultures we are going to explore the meaning of human rights as fundamental democratic values by use of non-formal learning methods. We will work again with the media theater and video making in a way of how can we use those media to send a message to our communities.

During the exchange we will consider perspectives on human rights through addressing the following thematic aspects of the topic: Human rights today: understanding the meaning and value; Human rights in different cultures and different cultures of human rights; Why and how do I practice human rights? How it impacts me and my environment?; Violations of human rights.; Future of human rights; How I engage and how can I engage others to protect human rights?

There will be workshops about topics such as human rights (of course), communicating differences and their appreciation, intercultural communication and a lot more. From understanding of the value of human rights in our everyday life and in various cultures you are going to get to know “How do I become more active?” And “How do I involved in my community to shape human rights to make a positive long-lasting impact?”.
