“Bridging values – embracing differences!”– Trinational youth project of the twin towns 2018 in Šentjur
The international youth project involving 48 young people from the partner municipalities of Šentjur, Neu-Anspach, Germany and Saint-Florent-sur-Cher, France, will spend a week in 2018 bridging intercultural differences, strengthening intercultural dialogue and the opportunities that diversity offers.
This year’s exchange will take place at the Slivnica School in Gorizia near Slivnica. The 12 young people each from Germany and France will be hosted by the Slivnica and Blaz Kocen schools in the Ponikva district.
The young people exchange their ideas about community and friendship. In workshops, sports, games and fun, they experience how quickly one can communicate across language barriers and how much fun it is to get involved with new acquaintances. Accommodation in host families allows you to discover differences and similarities in family life, food and leisure activities. A visit to the country’s capital Ljubljana rounds off the varied programme, which also meets the strict ErasmusPlus funding guidelines this year. As always, 7 intensive days fly by. With many tears of farewell and the promise to stay in touch, 12 young people each travel back to Neu-Anspach and to Saint-Florent-sur-Cher with a lot of new impressions, a new awareness of diversity.
