El método principal utilizado en este intercambio será el juego de roles/teatro.
Además de los talleres de teatro, los participantes realizarán actividades sobre el tema del intercambio cultural. Girando en torno al tema del teatro, serán las siguientes actividades:
- Talleres de teatro de improvisación
- Talleres de artes y anteproyectos de decoración
- Talleres de guión
- Ejecución de bocetos preescritos
- Talleres de Teatro Abierto, donde el público puede interferir
Aunque el intercambio se centrará en el método del teatro, también se realizarán debates filosóficos y talleres en torno al tema de la cultura
- Debates en movimiento (3D)
- "técnica del termómetro"
- El Worldcafé
- Debates de grupos de dos, luego de cuatro, luego de ocho participantes
- Debates temáticos sobre conceptos como el dinero o el feminismo
También podremos descubrir la oferta de la capital belga visitando Bruselas y su rica diversidad cultural el fin de semana.

El objetivo de Crossroads es reunir a jóvenes de diferentes orígenes, en particular invitando a otras nacionalidades a participar en el debate.

Este intercambio de jóvenes tendrá como objetivo concienciar a los jóvenes de que su educación y la identidad que han construido para sí mismos a través de esta influencia educativa, a veces sesga su encuentro con el otro. Serán conducidos a encontrar formas de superar los prejuicios y juicios que todos hacen con frecuencia, sin siempre darse cuenta, para descubrir al otro de manera sincera.

Con la ayuda de técnicas de educación no formal, se guiará a los jóvenes a desarrollar esta mentalidad abierta y una escucha empática.
- Vivirán juntos mientras dure el intercambio en el complejo de Saint-François en Marche-en-Famenne (ciudad valona de Bélgica). A través de esta convivencia, compartirán momentos de intercambios informales que les permitirán crear vínculos.
- Compartirán momentos de intercambio más formal guiados por temas que generarán debate.
- Aprenderán a capturar momentos de reflexión frente a la cámara.
- Crearán juntos una pequeña obra de teatro que les permitirá compartir creativamente los resultados de sus intercambios.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Complexe Saint-François, Rue Victor Libert 36, 6900 Marche-en-Famenne

El edificio incluye un gran salón, un agradable espacio exterior, una cocina para cocinar colectivamente y dormitorios con dos camas cada uno.

ONLY SPAINSH
Este proyecto parte de diferentes momentos de intercambio y reflexión entre jóvenes que participan en las actividades de los Compagnons Bâtisseurs. Todos creen en la importancia de promover la diversidad y la identifican como una riqueza que necesita ser defendida, como el retraimiento basado en la identidad, el miedo al otro y el comunitarismo cobran cada vez más protagonismo en Europa.

Querían poner en práctica esta observación para abordar el diálogo intercultural y las interacciones entre los individuos y centrarse en lo que mentalidad abierta y escuchar con empatía realmente significa. Ya que se puede decir que él o ella es de mente abierta, pero él o ella escucha al otro con su propia educación y todo lo que engloba: valores, prejuicios, opiniones, juicios.

El objetivo de este intercambio juvenil será concienciar a los jóvenes de que esta perspectiva puede eclipsar pensamientos y comportamientos sesgados y mostrarles maneras de superar los prejuicios y juicios que frecuentemente hacemos para permitir mejores y más profundas interacciones interpersonales.

Reuniendo a jóvenes de 4 países diferentes, los proyectos tienen como objetivo reunir a un grupo cultural y socialmente diverso para permitir un rico conjunto de bases de intercambio. El grupo estaría formado por unas 24 personas (5 jóvenes + 1 líder por país).

Además de utilizar métodos de educación no formal, los jóvenes serán alentados a desarrollar su propio sentido de apertura mental y empatía escuchando. Crearán una pequeña obra de teatro que permitirá compartir los resultados de su intercambio en una materia creativa.

El objetivo principal es el encuentro de los jóvenes y su intercambio intercultural.
Los objetivos secundarios son los siguientes:
- Superar nuestros prejuicios sobre la cultura, el origen, los valores y las costumbres.
- Evitar la discriminación fomentando la tolerancia.
- Crear una mentalidad sana y abierta, basada en la empatía y la atención a los demás, en lugar del cultivo del juicio y las opiniones personales.
- Vivir una experiencia inmersiva de dos semanas que reúne a jóvenes de diferentes entornos, donde todos contribuyan al éxito del encuentro.

BEWARE: the place is really isolated.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The Sugny Asylum Seeker Centre hosts people who have asked for international protection in Belgium. These people fled situations of war, persecution, discriminations, environmental disasters…. But before to feel actually established in Belgium and allowed to build their future here, their refugee status has to be proven and accepted through a long administrative process. While waiting for the documents that will enable them to remain legally in our country, the asylum seekers are accommodated in this centre.
People living there await the solution concerning their administrative status. They never know what tomorrow may bring to them.
Therefore, residents often found themselves overwhelmed by feelings of relief and anguish, hope and disappointment. The life of Sugny Asylum Seeker Centre reflects these individual dramas and hopefulness of residents.
Website (available in English): https://www.fedasil.be/en
This project is organized in line with several other volunteering teams hosted in refugees center in Belgium. It aims to bring a small contribution to the welcoming of the residents as well as to permit the volunteers to learn about and be better aware of the realities of the migration policies.

Arbeit

The people of this place would like to advance on different projects with the group of volunteers and with neighbors who would join the team during this period:
- The carpentry workshop: for the moment it is a simple old hangar. The idea is to build wooden walls, straw and earth-straw and redo the roof. Natural materials are preferred.
- Improve the ”welcoming migrants room”: residents have just obtained a small prefabricated building to give their passing friends a more comfortable place. But it still needs to be properly insulated, finished fitting it out, fitting out the surroundings in anticipation of winter days. Here too, wood, straw and recovery are favored.
- The organization of a festive moment this place is also animated by festive moments, meetings, musical exchanges with friends, families, people from the neighborhood ... In order to end the work in a good mood with international volunteers, the locals want to organize a party. The volunteers will help to arrange the spaces, to set up the bar, the sound system, to decorate the place ... And then to party 😊
- Participation in the life of the house project: vegetable patch, site maintenance.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

ACCOMMODATION :
Volunteers will stay in a prefabricated module or in a tent, depending on the weather. Mattresses (and tents) will be available on site. The showers and the toilet will be outside.

Lage und Freizeit

The grouped housing is located in Ham sur Sambre, in the commune of Jemeppe sur Sambre, in the region of lower Sambre, in the province of Namur. This small town is located between Namur and Charleroi.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

“Le Hameau de la Ferme du Terril” is an intergenerational house project with the status of a private foundation, founded in 2014, by citizens questioned by the unequal world in which they live. They want their place of life to be a place where they can experience another way of living, made of simplicity, solidarity, but also an alternative way of life, allowing them to limit their individual consumption by pooling resources.

“Le Hameau de la Ferme du Terril” is a grouped accommodation made up of 6 houses in which one 10 adults and 8 children live, from 20 months to 70 years old… many buildings and a field of 5 hectares on which several collective projects have already been carried out: large vegetable garden, orchard, ballad path on the slag heap, hut for children, chicken coop, fenced land for sheep. . Thus, if each family has its own house, the collective living spaces and the land belong to the foundation. The profit is disinterested. The objective is to maintain access to the housing project, built as a place for collective living, promoting living together.

The intention of the residents is that to welcome and open up, to the neighborhood, but also more broadly.

There are also collective spaces, some of which are furnished, such as a kitchen, a shower, a food storage and a laundry room. Others are in the process of being realized: pottery workshop, carpentry workshop and a multitude of others! In these spaces, the residents would like to be able to host meetings, workshops, training courses promoting the search for a simple and creative life, sharing of knowledge and skills,

This housing project is based on the philosophy of the Community Land Trust. Thus, if each family has its own house, the collective living spaces and the land belong to the foundation. The profit is disinterested. The objective is to maintain access to the housing project, built as a place for collective living, promoting living together.

For 3 year, the inhabitants of this place have welcomed 5 or 6 migrants in transit, three days a week in order to give them access to basic needs such as food, rest, warmth and hygiene (washing, washing clothes). These people are from Eritrea, they are guided by the Collective S13 which works with migrants who "camp" on the Spy motorway service, on their long migratory journey.

Yvoir is a small village situated in the “heart” of Wallonia. The town is articulated around two rivers, perpendicular to each other: the Bocq, that give the name to the centre, and the Meuse, the Belgian main river. In addition, the Meuse reveals slightly upstream of the confluence the island of Yvoir, which is the only island with a tourist function in the country and that you can visit.
During the weekend, and according to the group decisions it will be possible to organise cultural visits and to travel to the biggest Belgian cities. Namur is around 20 km and Dinant is around 10 km. Both of them have really nice citadel you can visit!

The Le Bocq Yvoir Asylum Seeker Centre hosts people who have asked for asylum in Belgium. Many of them fled from war or persecution. Before these people may start their new lives, their refugee status has to be proven and accepted. While waiting for the documents that will enable them to remain legally in our country, the asylum seekers are accommodated in this centre.
People living there await the solution concerning their administrative status. They never know what tomorrow may bring to them.
Therefore, residents often found themselves overwhelmed by feelings of relief and anguish, hope and disappointment. The life of Le Bocq Asylum Seeker Centre reflects these individual dramas and hopefulness of residents.
