Dear candidates,

SCIENCIVICUS – Active citizenship through science education is a Youth Exchange program funded by the European Union, in which you can have the chance to meet many young people from other European countries and debate about the topic of science and civics.

The Youth Exchange is organized and coordinated by Asociația Secular-Umanistă din România, a Romanian non-profit organization, established in 2010, that focuses on popularizing scientific education and critical thinking among the general public. Therefore, its main objective is to encourage and facilitate the dialogue between scientists and the public through conferences, debates, and informal activities to popularize science. At the same time, the association advocates for promoting science and culture, democratic political framework and active citizenship, humanistic ethical principles and secularism.

The idea that we would like to convey through this Youth Exchange is that there is a different way to regard active citizenship. We want to teach youngsters how to become informed and capable citizens by cultivating civic engagement and a scientific mindset.

SCIENCIVICUS will take place in Bucharest, Romania, from 10th to 17th October 2021.

The selected venue will be NOD Makerspace and the accommodation place for the participants outside Romania will be First Hostel. For the Romanian participants no accommodation will be provided.Youngsters from Italy, Romania, Turkey, Poland and Malta will join the project.

Each national group will be composed of 7 people (6 participants + 1 group leader), for a total of 35 people joining SCIENCIVICUS. The Youth Exchange is open to participants from 18 to 30 years old. Some exceptions are made for the Romanian participants who can be from 16 to 18 years old.

The program of SCIENCIVICUS will include several activities, distributed throughout the 6 days of the Exchange: Ice-breaking games and energizers at the beginning of each session, meant to stimulate group cohesiveness, especially during the first days; Science experiments, workshops, constructive debates, role playing and presentations, to active participation, teamwork and artistic creations; Short visits of cultural and historic monuments, symbols of the Romanian democracy and science activity.
