Long term ESC project in Sweden!

Location: Sundsvall, Sweden

Project name: Creative leisure and cultural diversity

Hosting organization: Sundsvalls kommun

Purpose of the project: Our project aims to, with the help of volunteers from other cultures, offer creative leisure engagements to the participants in our youth activities in the municipality of Sundsvall, that originates from their needs and interests. The basis for these activities is that everybody is welcome, regardless of ethnically and socioeconomic background, physical or psychological disability, religious outlook, gender, and sexual orientation. A solidarity approach will saturate all activities that the volunteers will participate in or operate themselves. In short terms, the project aims to increase all youth’s participation and engagement in their own leisure time on a local social level. In the long term, we expect the volunteers to influence the activities with their own experiences and knowledge from their respective countries, in order to strengthen the young people’s views on democracy and European citizenship. We think this will improve their ability to meet social challenges.
