The mobility within the framework of the project European Citizenship Education took place between 15-23 of August 2019 in Bodo, situated in the Timiș county, in the western part of Romania.

42 young people from 7 countries (Romania, Italy, Greece, Sweden, Bulgaria, Finland and Denmark) participated throughout the six days of activities based on non-formal education methodologies to make friends, interact with other cultures and nonetheless, learn and gain more knowledge on the topic of EU and Europenism.

The village of Bodo is a quiet village in the Timiș county, located 65 km away from Timișoara and 20 km away from Lugoj, which are the biggest cities in the vicinity, and is easy accessible directly from the A1 motorway. Here in Bodo, the participants were accommodated in Bodo Smart Camp, a facility prepared for holding large groups of people, with shared dorms in which the participants were mixed, gender biased. The venue has a generous space both inside and outside the building. Amongst the facilities which can be found in the Camp, there is a courtyard for outdoor activities in which there are tables and chairs for socializing, a large space to play games or other sport …

Testimonial – Detelina Palova (Bulgaria)

Category:European Citizenship Education

In the beginning of the month of august I and some other bulgarians got to experience the amazing opportunity called youth exchange. This particular project had the theme Active Citizenship  and was held in the village of Bodo, Timis county. The whole project from the participant’s side is something hard to describe, because every day is full of adventures, emotions, challenges and new experiences.

Many young people lack the opportunity to meet international peers and communicate in a multicultural environment. When it comes to Erasmus+, it is one thing that shapes the generation of tomorrow into a more tolerant, understanding and criticaly thinking youth. My personal experience in this particular project has brought me closer to my goals in personal development. I find I have become more culturally aware, sensitive to political topics and communicative. My knowledge of european countries’ personal history has made me a more informed individual, that can manage cultural differences in a productive way. Having an interest in psychology has deepened my understanding of the way things operate in an interpersonal level. As I have grown up, been raised and studied in a strictly Bulgarian environment, I have not had the chance to experience new cultures. …

Testimonial – Rareș Leschian (Romania)

Category:European Citizenship Education

The mobility of the “European Citizenship Education” project was a unique experience in which I participated in August. I encountered a lot of people from all over Europe, active youngsters with whom I had a great time and I made some friends along the way apart from all the experience and knowledge I gained from this Youth Exchange.

The mobility happened in Bodo Village, a great rural place with a lot of facilities we could use. From my experience of being involved in Erasmus+ and participating in projects I can definitely say that this kind of projects which happen in locations like this have the most success, because it allows people to get closer to each other and interact more often and aswell mix themselves with the other groups and not just stay in their national teams.

The place was also amazing because of some perks that we could find there. For example, we had a synthetic football field we could use whenever we wanted, where we played a lot of games, did sports and some activities and it was really fun to have it there. The main room for the acitivities was spacious enough to use it fully and …

Testimonial – Ugnė Rakauskaitė (Lithuania)

Category:European Citizenship Education

The acomodation in a project was very good. I liked the fact that we were living in a rooms with people from different nationalities by doing that I was able to get to know them better. We did many bonding activities wich really helped to become more open to everyone and find friends. I eenjoyed the food. I liked the fact that we had vegan/vegetarian options, at first it was pitty that other people would take it but later the problem was fixed. We did a lot of activities with project theme about EU , not all of them was at my expectations but I enjoyed working with my group. I also enjoyed activities outside of our living space like going to the pool or city. Overall I think that the project was good, I met a lot of people and found new friends from other countries.…

Testimonial – Lina Kitsiou (Greece)

Category:European Citizenship Education

The days I spent in Bodo are still marked in my mind. Till’ then I hadn’t imagine how it would be to connect with people from different countries and yet find out how much in common we have.

My first youth exchange was a very nice experience. During the project, I appreciated the values of European Union, the benefits we have as European Union citizens and the meaning of sharing your culture and nations with foreing youngsters around your age. All in all, I understood in depth European Union, the meaning of being a European citizen and the common values we all Europeans share. A great experience, I am totally looking forward to live this again.…

Day 6:

 

🔘Ziua a 6-a (Marți), a început cu un energizer menit să îi pregătească pe toți pentru ziua de activități, în care 3 participanți s-au oferit ca voluntari, având sarcina ca, pe rând, să îi impresioneze pe ceilalți prin mișcări energice, aceștia din urmă imitându-i, scopul final fiind ca participanții din cerc să bată din palme ca semnal că au fost impresionați. 👏
🔘Activitatea care a urmat pe tema “decision making” a luat forma unui joc interactiv cu numele “Escape from Transilvania”🦇 în care participanții au trebuit să gândească strategii, să negocieze și să concureze unii cu alții. În urma acestui exercițiu practic, participanții au aflat care este procesul decizional al Comisiei Europene. 🇪🇺
🔘De asemenea, participanții au completat ca parte a activității de evaluare parțială fișe inspirate care urmăresc dezvoltarea competențelor cheie conform YouthPass-ului. ✍️După aceea, a urmat seara interculturală a grecilor care ne-au pregătit o sumedenie de mâncăruri tradiționale și o prezentare despre țara lor!🇬🇷

Category:European Citizenship Education

Day 5:

 

🔹Ziua 5 (Luni) a început devreme pentru participanți, întrucât aceștia au plecat devreme de la Bodo pentru a ajunge în Timișoara unde le-a fost pregătit un program de activități combinat cu timp liber✌️ pe care aceștia l-au folosit pentru a vizita orașul, pentru a se plimba și pentru a descoperi cultura din Banat. 🧐
🔹Una din activitățile pregătite pentru aceștia a fost un treasure hunt în care participanții au trebuit să descopere simbolurile Capitalei Culturale Europene 2021🥳, alte simboluri legate de valorile europene ale Timișoarei și simboluri specifice ale orașului, timp în care au descoperit majoritatea punctelor cheie din oraș și s-au distrat făcând aceasta.🏃‍♂️🚶‍♂️
🔹Orașul Timișoara este al treilea ca mărime din România, cunoscut pentru istoria bogată și diversitatea etnică și culturală a locului.🎩 De aceea, arhitectura și arta au un loc de cinste în “Mica Vienă”, iar participanții au avut oportunitatea să viziteze locuri precum Palatul Baroc, Bastionul, Muzeul Național de Artă și alte clădiri istorice importante.🕍 Pe de altă parte, participanții au făcut o incursiune în istoria mai modernă a regiunii prin vizita la Muzeul Consumatorului Comunist, un loc de care au fost impresionați și unde s-au simțit foarte bine.
