Pleas from young people to the European Commission and MEP

In this video, we said to young people that there may be no more funding for them, as in the draft there is very little discussion about inclusion. (this is explain at the beginning of the video). It was a way to see their reaction and to show how important these programmes are for them. We asked them as well what they would like to say to MEP and European Commission in order to change their mind and keep the funding.

If I hadn't done this project, today I would probably…

As the title say, during the event, we were asking participants what they think they would have been doing today if they didn’t had this experience through the mobility programmes of the European Commission. The idea was to show the impact of these programmes.

These two videos are very inspiring!

Speed blogging for dummies

We  are a group of young people who are learning to present our ideas and experiences through social media. We have all taken part in young pride which celebrates volunteering and its contribution to the community and the importance of youth mobility in the UK and abroad, as well as the impact of people with different skill sets from different cultures participating in the wider community.

Today we have learnt how to  create a blog from our workshop and trainer through brain-storming ideas.

When making a blog you should consider:

1. Who will be making the blog audience and how they relate to the audience. e.g context - does your writer have context for what you are trying to express in your blog.

2. What will your blog offer the reader in return.

3. What is your current situation.

4. When are you going to publish a post.

5. Why are you going to create the blog.

6. Don't give up!
