Would you like to visit other minorities? Meet new friends? LearnÂ something new? Join YENâs activities in 2018Â and become a Minority Messenger! How doesÂ this work?
You will get a training with nice and interestingÂ people all over the Europe to develop theÂ project during the Kick-off event âMessage inÂ the Bottleâ in Switzerland from 11th till 18th ofÂ February. Presentation and management skillsÂ will also be on the agenda. Hills, snow andÂ washing machines may be there, too ð
During the Easter Seminar âWinging theÂ shoesâ in Opole from 23rd till 29th of MarchÂ with BJDM we will train 50 MinorityÂ Messenger how to plan their trip and how toÂ present minority issues to other people.Â Then the even more exciting part starts! YouÂ will get a small budget to travel in the summerÂ (âSpreading the Messageâ) in your region andÂ visit other minorities or your minority, to inform them even better about other minority issues andÂ YEN.
After the summer we will meet again inÂ Bratislava from 8th till 14th of October for theÂ YLS âLong Minority Stories Shortâ toÂ exchange how the trips went amongst theÂ Minority Messengers, invite new friends youÂ met during the trips and evaluate the tools we used. During your trips, you will also gatherÂ information about different problems theÂ minorities may face or best practices they have,Â e.g. on language, education and media. So atÂ the end of the year we can develop a databaseÂ with issues concerning minorities in Europe. We planÂ to continue the whole project also in the future,Â to learn more, contribute more and have moreÂ fun!
