“MISSION TRADITION”- ESC PROJECT AT YEU!

The project aims to encourage young people to believe in themselves and improve their artistic and interpersonal skills by exploring, interacting, experiencing and recording the traditions and the culture of Cyprus. By organizing different events for the society, engaging in solidarity activities and promoting volunteerism, we expect to make young people more active as citizens. The project will ensure the promotion of social inclusion and equal opportunities.

Our long-term goal is to involve volunteers in public activities and events with the purpose to rekindle the interest of young Cypriots in the rich and multidimensional cultural heritage of the island.

Activities

Together with the volunteers, we will realize a variety of different events, revolving around Tradition and Cultural Heritage, such as a Cultural Festival, Music events, a Human Library event, Sports events and many more. In this way, the volunteers will have the opportunity of assisting the coordinating team and gain through this experience useful organizational and social skills. In parallel with these events, they can additionally lead intercultural workshops and personal projects (movie nights, traditional games nights, language courses, theatre, music, dance, etc.) to promote their own countries and volunteerism; with access to a conference room, music equipment and art materials
