A brief description of the activities:
The hosting partner presented ideas for a permanent Heart Point in Sweden, located in the outdoor museum of rural Swedish cultural heritage, near Orkelljunga. The mission of this Heart Point is the promotion of peace, friendship and cooperation, and overcoming stigmatization. We solved the worksheets on the history of Sweden and Orkelljunga, while learning about the cultural heritage of Orkelljunga. At the round table we discussed possible employment strategies for young people to promote their interest in cultural activities and to develop various competences for employment, and active volunteering. The Europe Direct speaker presented us some new aspects of the functioning of the EU. Throughout the event, we also developed a joint, international theater piece, which reflected a critical experience of the status quo that hinders a better quality of the European identity. The performance was very successful, we made an amateur film from it, and it was performed to the public on the last day. At the event conclusion, the partners also gave an evaluation of the event.
