Cristuru Secuiesc, 1st – 9th of March 2022.
The Youth Association from Transylvania is organizing this
youth exchange in a little town called Cristuru Secuiesc, the name of the project is “Let’s stop bullying!”.
By participating in this mobility, young people between the
ages of 14 and 18 will better understand the phenomenon of
bullying, identify what types exist and what it can cause. At the same time, they will be able to identify good practices to manage this phenomenon: what the subjects of bullying should do and how those around them should act in order to support them.
On a personal level, at the level of competences, the
participants will be acquainted with the stop motion technique, with vlogging, with programs for creating presentations, which will contribute to the development of their digital skills; they will learn to say longer texts (presentation), to do vlogging, which will help to develop reading and writing in English; they will come from different backgrounds, some of whom are socially, educationally or
geographically disadvantaged, or some of them have already faced the issue of bullying, so young people will become more
empathetic, tolerant and supportive (personal skills) regarding others.
During the youth exchange, the organizers will teach the
participants how to design personal goals to achieve (according to the topic, methods of exchange and individual and group interests) and how to follow their achievement with the help of a diary tool. At the same time, the young
people will develop their communication in English, being the most used language in the communication during the program and will also learn expressions from other languages spoken by the other participants. They will also draw the public’s attention to the rejection and eradication of the
phenomenon of bullying through the 6 films, but also to the actions taken at the three local educational institutions, thus becoming more active European citizens in the fight of a global problem. Then they will present their cultures through the two types of cultural activities, and thus they will more easily accept the cultural diversity and will realize that they must support the maintenance of this diversity. Many of these skills will be useful for young people in school benches, and then they can help them in their professional and even personal lives.
Organizations will strengthen their organizational capacity by collaborating on bullying issues. We hope that the participants will have the chance to promote the message of mobility, even after its implementation, both in the
online environment of the promoters, as well as at events and activities, so the organizations will be able to gain new volunteers. The participants will create 6 anti-bullying videos with the stop motion technique, and these will have the role of helping the target group, mainly the young people affected
by intimidation to know how to react to such situations or the people around them (teachers, parents, etc.) to become acquainted with the management of such problematic situations.

countries with low risk (Macedonia and Italy), 2 medium risk countries (Spain and Lithuania) and 2 high risk countries (Romania and Portugal) in order to develop ideas, solutions to combat bullying efficiently
