Ulysses
(Youth exchange)

 

 

Let's decrease social stress among youth!

 

/12. 9. - 21. 9. 2022/Vicenza/Italy

Organizator of the project:  Studio Progetto

The youth exchange will take place between the 12th of September and to 21st of September 2022 in Vincenza, Italy.

IMPORTANT! A preparatory meeting is foreseen between youth leaders of participating countries on the days 29-29.7 (+1 travel day)

About the project:

The Homeric work Odyssey tells the story of the Greek warrior Odysseus returning to his native Ithaca after the victorious war fought against the Trojan army.

Throughout the play, Ulysses is the hero who enriches himself with the many diversities and the countless unexpected events he encounters on his journey. Encounter after encounter, he metaphorically comes to strip himself of everything: his traveling companions, his ship, his possessions, and even his name (for Cyclops Polyphemus he becomes' Nobody') in order to regain what he had before the war. The high level of competitiveness and the propagation of the culture of the image in our society increases the social stress to which young people are subjected. We propose to realize during the youth exchange a metaphorical journey in the footsteps of the Odyssey in which the non-formal education tools will allow the participants to tell a story stripped of the social stresses to which everyday life subjects them. They will realize together a new poem, Ulysses, centered on their personal growth and inspired by their experiences, desires, and talents.

Objectives of the project:

  • Promote reflection on the opportunities for young people to create their own life paths
  • Recognize the elements that cause social pressure in the everyday life of young people
  • Share, create, and disseminate useful tools to respond to social pressure
  • Promote possible career paths starting from one's own talents and aspirations
