The youth exchange More Mosaic 4 all began on the unusually warm and sunny 13 October 2019. In fact, the truly amazing warm weather lasted throughout all days of the exchange, which is exceptional for this time of the year. Most of the activities were run by a skilled trainer Ivan (Youthfully Yours) with support from Oleh and Olena as organizers (Step Forward). Participants learned what it means to be an active citizen and could also observe the differences of being an active citizen depending on the country.
The topic of active citizenship was first explored through means of discussion and brainstorming activities. A few days into the exchange we started to express our views on contemporary social and economic issues via speeches, theatre, forum theatre, shadow theatre and digital media; this allowed the participants to learn by practicing and have a good time at the same time. The aforementioned creative activities were a combination of sharing issues of our countries and of proposing solutions to the issues. It was interesting to observe how different countries face different issues, how they deal with them differently and how active citizenship is supported by each country and also how different people valued the options they have more than others.
The whole project was enhanced by teambuilding activities and energisers, lead in part by Ivan and in part by participants themselves, and on the top of that every evening offered a show presenting the culture and cuisine of one of the 8 countries.
