Nukanti is looking for motivated young people (18 to 25 years old) with interest in the topics of Human Rights, European Citizenship and Intercultural Exchange to take part in the project “Youth and Human Rights” 2, funded through the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission. The project is organized and hosted by Fundación por los Derechos Humanos 10.12.48 (Spain), in cooperation with Nukanti (UK).

The project will take place in Valencia, Spain on June 19-26, 2016. Groups of 12 young people from the UK and Spain, including refugees in these countries, will gather together to discuss topics related to Human Rights and European Citizenship through various workshops, documentary projections and discussions. Each group will be accompanied by a leader who will support the participants in planning and carrying out the activities. The group members will be in contact with each other a few weeks before the exchange so they can discuss and prepare their participation. The activities will be in Spanish and English and the coordinators will assist with translation when needed.

Food and accommodation will be provided by the hosting organization. The participants will be staying in a centrally located hostel in Valencia, with separate dormitories for men and women. At least two meals per day will be provided. Travel costs will be reimbursed up to EUR 170 per person (UK-Spain-UK) upon return from the youth exchange, provided that all original travel documents (tickets, receipts, boarding passes) have been submitted and the participants have fulfilled all their commitments with the organization.

Youth exchanges are also fun!
