RaInBOW - Raising Integration Beyond sOcial Weaknesses

RAINBOW wants to reflect on the important issue of social integration for young people experiencing and living different social conditions.

The RAINBOW project raises from the need of reflecting together on the important issue of social integration for young people experiencing and living different social conditions that can make difficult for them to be fully integrated within peer group and society.
The RAINBOW project aims at dealing with social and human rights, especially focusing on the lives of people with Down Syndrome, socially excluded young people and LGBT young people, involving them in 3 exchanges through which their social integration and related rights can be promoted .
In particular, the focus will be put on what integration and diversity mean for young people coming from different countries and backgrounds.
The results will be represented in different videos made by young people in mixed groups and disseminated through internet and social media.

The other Group Members from AIPD are normal people attending middle and high school. The aim of the project is to create heterogeneous youth groups coming from 3 different countries: all of them want to reflect and focus on the holistic concept of diversity (including different social situations, such as those lived by people with Down Syndrome, young people with social problems and LGBT young people) and on what social integration means for them. Young people should be between 4 and 10 per group, 50% male and 50% female if possible. 1 male and 1 female leader for each group should be selected. AIPD is looking for 2 partners: - 1 partner should deal with young people facing social difficulties (aged 14-20 years), and should be located in one of the following countries: Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany. - 1 partner should deal with LGBT-related issues with young people aged 14-20 years, and should be located in one of the following countries: Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany. Both partners should involve at least 4 young people aged 14-20 years and should be willing to host and organise an exchange in their country for a minimum of 5 days and a maximum of 7 days (travel days excluded) for the other 2 partners. Young people should be sent in the Exchanges abroad and be involved in the exchange hosted by their organisation.
