“Let’s commEUnicate!”

3-10th June 2022,

Świętouść, Poland

Youth Exchange

 

 

The main goal of our project is to develop communication competences among young people of our organisations. Through our project we will have a chance to practice both verbal (in mother and foreign languages) and non-verbal communication. Besides, considering the pandemic, we will dedicate some time for learning tools useful for communicating on the Internet. During the exchange we will be using non-formal education methods and each workshop will be run by a different group of participants. Thanks to this we will not only develop communication skills, but we will also let the participants to take up a facilitating role
and this way we will include them more in the organisation process. The next goal of the project is to meet and start a dialogue in real life. Up until now we’ve been cooperating only online and, despite very good relations, we’d like to have a chance to meet because a better integration and creating a well-cooperating international team will lead to future common actions. What’s more, our members who haven’t had a chance to go abroad will learn the culture, tradition, history and customs of their friends from other countries. It is crucial to us because we want to keep organising international project and the ease in contacting people
from other countries is a key skill in our organisations. We believe that nurturing communication skills are important for us all, especially in the times where most of us study or work remotely and socialising is limited. That is why if our project becomes a success, our members improve their skills, we’ll build a more engaged team, we’ll receive a positive feedback from the participants and other recipients of our project, we would like to organise another project in the topic of communication, because it’s crucial to us to educate the biggest number of people.
