IMOVE Project in Gozo

  • Posted on:  Monday, 14 September 2015 02:00

The project entitled 'I Move!' is a youth exchange involving a total number of 54 youths from 9 different countries: Malta, Lithuania , Ukraine, Armenia, Romania, Georgia, Spain, Greece and Turkey.  ERRC developed the idea to create a project with other foreign organizations who are also involved in working with youths with the idea to create a youth exchange involving youths from both European and non-European states on the importance of healthy living.

The general objective of our project is to help and improve  the participants’ skills and recognizing the importance making healthy choices so as to have a healthy lifestyle. The theme and objectives of the project are to develop the young peoples understanding, knowledge and experience on living active and healthy lifestyles, promote active citizenship, social solidarity and inclusion and respect and mutual understandings of different cultures. 

This exchange is an example of  a project devised by the young people for the young people who are not just examples of active youths but are also in a position to continue to pass on these important messages and to encourage more youths to participate. It will bring together youth coming from both EU and non-EU countries and thus it augurs well to promote further tolerance and understanding amongst youth coming from different countries.  The main activities include a mixture of outdoor activities, physical activities, workshops and culinary nights all intended to promote the main themes of the project.

By carrying out this project, we are hoping to create the start of an excitng journey whereby the youths will meet different young people and learn from each other.  It is no doubt that the todays young generations are tomorrows' adults. Therefore, this experience will help the participants in developing their characters and building self- confidence. The project encourages active participation and an increased sense of citizenship by making participants more aware of the role that they play in the society.

The initiative is being funded by the European Commission under the Erasmus plus program,  managed by the European Union Programmes Agency (EUPA). This project was made possible thanks to the technical assistance provided by the Malta-EU Steering and Action Committee (MEUSAC) which has assisted during the planning and design of the project.
