All the Social Rights are interdependent thus not being able to access one social right has a direct effect on accessing other social rights and infringement of any of these rights interfere in the implementation of the rest of the rights. With this interdependence in mind, the gymkhana includes several tasks, each of which is connected with one social right. The main rights we will focus will be decided by young people according with their own needs and this will bring to the project richness and respect of needs, thus creating motivation and impact.
The Gymkhana will comprise the following activities:
Act. 1 - Arts workshop:
Act. 2 - Traditional games day:
Act. 3 - Active research using video:
Act. 4 - Access to job workshop:
Act. 5 - Advocacy campaign:
Act. 6 - Peer training:
Act. 7 - International youth meeting at Palermo, Italy:
2. International voluntary service
From each partner country will move one volunteer to another partner country for 1 month. The volunteers will take actively part in all local activities to disseminate and promote the Social Rights into the local community and to disseminate the project results.
3. Creation of the good practice guide on the gymkhana
The guide will focus on the gymkhana as a tool to work with young people on social rights, offering a comprehensive approach imbedded in theory and practical experience that can be replicated and adapted to other contexts and groups.
4. Creation of recommendations
Recommendations will focus on the way non-formal education (NFE) contributing to the awareness and fulfilment of social rights for young people from disadvantaged neighbourhoods. They will be a chapter of the good practice guide and will be aimed to youth workers, youth organisations and also policy makers that can use them when elaborating policies on youth and especially youth from disadvantaged backgrounds.
