We are looking for participants to sign up for a youth exchange to Portugal for ten days, would you like to see a new country and learn about their culture? Would you like to learn new skills that you can use later in life? If yes then this might be the trip for you.
The TH!NK Youth Exchange was setup due to concerns with the post-truth politics within the European union. This particular project will focus on youth and it will be the participants themselves who will create the final product of the project. The youth exchange has 3 main themes: current affairs (media politics), critical thinking and youth participation. This will involve learning about a new country and their culture, meeting new people and gaining new skills. The youth exchange which will be in Lisbon, Portugal is departing on the 9th October and will not return until the 17th October. 5 participants per country: 1 group leader (at least 18, no upper age limit) and 4 participants (18-30, but preferably 18-25) The only requirements for this trip are that you need a valid passport that is up to date. The main objectives for this trip are to help young people to develop their critical and analytical thinking capabilities, to encourage youth to follow current national and EU affairs, to create intercultural learning moments among the participants from several European countries and between them and the community of Carnide. Also to promote pluralism, freedom of press and freedom of expression. This trip will involve many activities such as workshops (non formal methodology) Street interviews, presentations on current situations in home countries, documentary watching and debating, study visits (museum & newspaper offices) preparation of an NFE module on critical thinking in the post truth era, an implantation of the NFE module with support from the sending organisation, and many many more.
