The term Social Rights has became a buzz word lately. Everyone speaks about it, but no one really knows what does it mean and people keep asking: Is it just about human rights? Is that rights from European Union or not? What does it includes? How can put it to our projects? How can we make it concrete and practical to act in my community?
Enter Dignityland is a youth exchange, which was developed as tool to help young people to understand the concept of social rights, notice the violence of it and help those in need. Have the European Social Charter as base and background; we will approach the idea of Social Rights in different levels: Housing, Education, Health, Employment, Non-Discrimination, Legal and Social Protection and Movement of Persons. We will work and share on case, examples and community in practice. Together, we will be working on improving the “good examples” on how to motivate youngsters aware and active on their community and beyond.
When Social Meet Rights is a youth exchange that aims to empower young people to get to know social rights and help those in need.
- to increase the awareness of the European Social Charter and its practical implementation among young people;
- to address situations of conflict and exclusion of young people living in multicultural environments through non-formal education, role play and simulations games;
- to develop conceptual and practical means of translating social rights into the realities of young people;
- to explore and identify means for innovative youth based actions with young people at risk of exclusion and violence;
- to initiate, support and evaluate up to five innovative local actions and events with a high multiplier effect across partner countries to raise awareness on the European Social Charter;
- Young people that are living in disadvantage neighborhoods;
- Young people with no knowledge on their social rights;
- Young people with interest in intercultural learning;
- Young people who are interested in activism;
- Participants that have an active attitude!
- Aged 18 – 25 (no limit for group leader)
