Culture.World.WE. [Call for Applications 2016]

We are happy to announce “Culture.World.We.” youth encounter, the second edition of the “Culture.World.Me.”, which took place in November 2015 in Germany.

“Culture.World.We.” is a youth exchange on the topic of human rights which will take place in Lviv, Ukraine. Dates: 26 July – 3 August

Through exploring cultures we are going to explore the meaning of human rights as fundamental democratic values by use of non-formal learning methods. We will work again with the media theater and video making in a way of how can we use those media to send a message to our communities.

We look for participants who are: 15-23 years old coming from Germany or Ukraine and motivated to get involved in the encounter. In order to apply, please fill in the application form, which is available online. Follow the link, please. (Deadline: 26th of June 2016(3 July – for German participants).

Worried about COSTS? The project covers all food and accommodation expenses. Additionally it will cover your travel costs. (German participants up to 270€, Ukrainian participants up to 40€).


During the exchange we will consider perspectives on human rights through addressing the following thematic aspects of the topic: Human rights today: understanding the meaning and value; Human rights in different cultures and different cultures of human rights; Why and how do I practice human rights? How it impacts me and my environment?; Violations of human rights.; Future of human rights; How I engage and how can I engage others to protect human rights?

There will be workshops about topics such as human rights (of course), communicating differences and their appreciation, intercultural communication and a lot more. From understanding of the value of human rights in our everyday life and in various cultures you are going to get to know “How do I become more active?” And “How do I involved in my community to shape human rights to make a positive long-lasting impact?”.

“Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home – so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere.” As Eleanor Roosevelt
