CfA: New Horizons alumni and Falco Group invite young activists to study visit in Russia

Kategorie: Die Anderen

Alumni of the Theodor-Heuss-Kolleg cooperation programme New Horizons and Falco Group invite young activists to a study visit at the international communicative camp Most in Novomikhailovsky, Russia, from 1-6 August, 2016. 

The project aims at showing interesting and exciting examples of youth work, at learning best practices, transparency, and ways of managing and running a camp, at sharing experiences and initiating new projects. 

The idea is to create a platform for the exchange of experiences, knowledge and skills in non-formal education among alumni of the programme "New Horizons" and young people (coaches, counselors camps, informal leaders) from EU neighbouring countries. The international communicative camp organised by Falcogroup hosts this initiative. Since 2009, around 600 children and volunteers from more than 18 countries gather at the camp once a year in order to join forces in organising interethnic and cross-cultural events.  

Working languages: Russian and English

Main objectives:

  • Create a space for exchange of experiences, knowledge and skills, cultural expression and creativity among New Horizons alumni and participants of the camp
  • Develop competencies of participants in the field of intercultural dialogue and inter-sectoral cooperation
  • Development of innovative projects and joint initiatives that deal with social problems
  • Try to create a picture of the construction of cross-sectoral networks
  • Disseminate information about the MitOst programme and the opportunities it can provide to young people.
