About the project EMUN+

The "EMUN + Natural Urban Minds Plus" project was planned by some young members of the Arts in Rome association who share the interest for art and their city. They are young people active in the redevelopment of urban suburbs, who feel the need to interact with other peers to promote more ethical cities, encouraging an active participation of other young people in the social and cultural life of urban centers.

EMUN + was created to promote reflection on the values related to active citizenship and how these values represent an essential element to counter and prevent the onset of phenomena of social marginalization and urban degradation. As analysed by the 2016 European Urban Agenda Europe is a continent characterized by a high degree of urbanization: about half of the population currently lives in urban areas

with more than 50,000 inhabitants. Cities play a fundamental role in the social, economic and cultural life of Europe as the main engines of economic growth. At the same time, however, they suffer, in the urban peripheries, from the most serious problems that afflict modern society (including degradation and marginalization). In this context, young people are often one of the most penalized categories, finding themselves living not only in areas with low economic and employment potential, but also in reality with an absent playful cultural offer. The resolution of problems related to social exclusion and urban decay therefore represents a European challenge, which needs to be tackled globally, also taking into account that young people themselves (victims of such critical situations) can, if adequately involved and educated for active citizenship represent the solution to the problem. It is no coincidence that in Europe there have already been some youth initiatives carried out at the local level to revitalize some urban areas and to transform areas of severe degradation into places for comparison and dialogue with others in which inspiration and creativity can be expressed. EMUN + is inspired by these stories with the intention of making own personal contribution in combating urban decay by promoting the active participation of young people.

Aims:

- Stimulate the creativity of the participants, teaching them to exploit it for the benefit of the community in which they live (the creation of murals that focus on social issues will represent for young people a concrete example of how creativity and art can be put at the service of the community to promote intergenerational dialogue);

- Accustom young to dialogue and interact in a multicultural environment, learning from the diversity;

- Teach to young people to work in a team, learning to listen actively the others and to develop ideas as a group

- Raise the self-confidence of each participant by highlighting his/her skills (this will be possible because participants will descover artistic and creative skills that they didn’t know to possesse)

- Provide artistic and digital knowledge, potentially reusable in other city contexts for the promotion of cultural activities capable of improving the quality of life of local communities with particular attention to that of other young people at risk of marginalization or in any case to - Sensitize them to a conscious and constructive use of Social Networks.

The Youth Exchange

The Youth Exchange of 7 days will held from 14 to 20 july 2021 (travel days excluded) held in Isola del Liri where the activities will be shaped around: the development of creativity, active participation to avoid urban abandon, artistic activities, digital activities, leadership, the ability to work in groups, interpersonal relationships within a team, but also - which is a primary objective of the project, from the educational point of view - on understanding the importance of active citizenship and corporate culture, respect for diversity in all its forms, education for tolerance, dialogue and interculturalism. The use of methods and tools proper to non-formal education are also particularly suited to the theme of creativity and urban regeneration: non-formal education is characterized, in fact, by a strong practical sense and is goal-oriented, thus being particularly suitable for the realization of the outputs of EMUN+ project.
