WORLD ISLAND SHAKE #5CONTINENTS #EMPOWERMENT #CREATIVITY

World Island Shake (WISh) is a worldwide project coordinated by the youth of the Federation of Scouts of Tenerife. This initiative has been approved and 80 % co - funded by “Youth in Action” programme of the European Commission. The project brings together young people of Iceland, Malta, Solomon Islands , Indonesia , Santa Lucia and the Canary Islands (Spain).

Starting by the 10th of March 12 islander participants worldwide will have their first international meeting in Tenerife, the Canary Islands. During 10 days they will take part in a Training Course and a Study Visit denominated “Participation - Creativity – Employability”.

This project answers two of the main problems identified among the partners: the low participation of youth in public life and the high unemployment rate. Both problems are going to be tackled by the exchange of experiences and the usage of volunteering tools, in order to create youth initiatives that can become new start ups afterwards.

 

 

WEB TV

www.shareculture.eu

SHARE CULTURE! TV brings together leading cultural organizations in video-filming and performing arts from Italy, Spain, Malta and Albania, researching new modes of artistic and cultural communication and inviting Europeans to think deeply about how we share and navigate daily culture.

The driving research elements behind SHARE CULTURE! TV seek to discover how we can document and what we can share to reveal the underlying mechanics of human art in public and private spaces and communicating an essential part of what it is happening in each specific country involved in the project, and beyond.

The SHARE CULTURE project explores two streams: synthesizing the different national cultural approaches into an inter-media and interactive web tv platform and simultaneously developing narrative structures which can stimulate other users to share their point of view about culture.

Supported by European Commission, SHARE CULTURE! TV will be presented in September 2013 in Mosta (Malta) . The project will be produced throughout 2013 and 2014.

 

 

LIFE WITHOUT TODAY'S ENERGY

SIS 001/2011

This project has demonstrated life without certain sources of energy in everyday life and was a non formal way of providing education in an innovative way. The objective was to collect participants´ ideas during the training and how to include innovative renewable sources of energy in our everyday use. Under the EU, lots of environmentally-friendly projects were already created, however it is never enough, as the radical change has not yet arrived.

The main idea of this project was the promotion of environmental topics in connection with national policies and the individual’s point of view, whilst working in teams. It moved theoretical thinking into the practical level, when participants could show ways of using renewable energy resources in their homes and share examples between the participants. During the training they had to think, which resources are available at the maximal level in their home and so they can be used effectively and economically. Participants have also been engaged in volunteering in this area. To avoid making the training project similar with others, the idea behind this project was that it could create an original concept, composing of activities, trainings, debates, games and morning energizers. One of the conditions of participating in this training was bringing an open mind on the green policy and energy resources situation in our country.

The participants had to collect information about energy self-sufficiency, possibilities to develop renewable sources of energy and the existing risks, which can cause energy crisis.

The trainings course and exhibitions took place in 3 localities namely- Kalkara, Mosta and Gharb in Gozo. They were organised in September 2012 Mosta in Malta, November 2012 Gharb in Gozo and November 2012 Kalkara in Malta. The publication of the project outcomes were done in DVD form and distributed during a number of other events with public and youths.

There were 3 training courses over 3 days each and during the training 35 participants who were youths were able to participate in non formal active participation debates, training, exercises and finally create some innovative ideas which were displayed for the general public.

Implemented activities in training courses:

. Day 1: Over view of the environment situation in Malta and EU

  Day 2: Environment-friendly technologies and renewable sources

  Day 3: “Environmentally-conscious society”

The methods applied:

  Day1:informal exercises, presentation, workshop, energizer

  Day2:workshop, discussion, study visit, presentation

  Day3:non-formal games, debate, workshop, market place

The amount of the SIS grant received was in total 3,000.00 Euro.
