Summary (project goals and purpose)
The project EU Treasure Hunt took place within the framework of the action Grundtvig Learning Partnerships. The aim was to connect young people from different European countries and to discover the rich cultural heritage in each of the participating countries. It was intended for the participants in the programme Project Learning for Young Adults (PUM) in Novo mesto. During the two-year project, the participants and their mentors were discovering European treasures in the fields of art and crafts, history, architecture and cuisine. They actively participated in learning activities, the preparation of the materials, and the planning and implementation of mobility. With the implementation of the project activities, we offered the participants numerous opportunities for general education, the mobility to the partner countries, the creation of social and cultural identity, and we were encouraging personal growth and overcoming social exclusion.
Within the project we carried out 25 learning mobilities (16 young people and 9 mentors), we have created a website and organized a contest for the project logo. We also recorded two short films and posted them on YouTube (Atria of Novo mesto and PUM Novo mesto - 2011/2012). We printed a presentation brochure, designed promotional aprons and designed and produced a didactic game Memory (the photos of our products can be viewed in the gallery).
The project leaders were Maruša Bajt and Maja Regina. Further information about the project is available at email@example.com.
