Las Teresitas final evaluation

Last day of the exchange and it is already in our heads the idea that we have to say goodbye. It’s time to spend the day together, sharing our experience and feelings. We reflected on what we have learned, what has surprised us and the evolution we have experienced.

We also put together everything we’ve done these days, and we value what we liked most and what we liked least.

Stereotypes and tolerance workshop

Stereotypes and tolerance workshop

Tolerance WorkshopOur mind needs to create stereotypes, but we are the ones who have great power to turn them into tolerance or prejudice, that was the idea for that workshop.

Already during the kayakactivity Memory Pills exchange participants were talking about the stereotypes they have about different countries.

Later, after returning to the residence, taking as starting point academic information by researchs in the field, the knoledge was involved in several games that helped through learning by doing. We imagined a German person and suddenly we had a lot of stereotypes about their nation in our brain. Then we imagined someone from Bhutan and we were all silent…

Kayak under the cliff

Kayak under the cliff

Kayak at the seaThe Youth Exchange is finishing and one of the most difficult task, the Romería is already done. Now we deserve a good trip to discover the amazing nature of the island. For that we had a special activity prepared, thanks to the help of “El Cardón” we have the chance to discover the Northwest corner of the Island in a Kayak trip of around 3 hours.

We split in couples and start by learning the basic skills to drive a boat, and then just go.. and learning by doing. Every couple, has to adapt to the rhythm and speed of the other, and coordinate to go in the desired destination. It seems not so easy to everyone, but with a little bit of help all the group enjoyed a great experience on open waters.

As participants are from different cities, each one spoke a bit of his own: Riga (the capital), Daugavpils and Liepaja.  They had also brought many products from their country, such as delicious chocolates with exotic flavors. We also tried a cold soup of black bread with berries and fruit that was sweet and delicious.

Ideas about Europe, What do you think?

Ideas about Europe, What do you think?

Ideas about EuropeThe workshop “Ideas about Europe” allowed the participants to make a reflection about Europe and European Union and to generate an interesting debate.

The first question participant had to face was the simple idea of how to define Europe. From cultural, geographical passing to historical definitions, most of them gave their version of which are the borders of that could be considered Europe. Finally, an agreement was adopted in the geographical version, establishing the borders on the East in the Ural Mountains, although some participants, mainly from Canary Islands, disagree once that this could leave outside their homeland.
