Young adults from the Project Learning for Young Adults (PUM) program
The EU Treasure Hunt project was carried out as part of the Grundtvig Learning Partnership campaign. The aim was to connect young people from different European countries and to discover a rich cultural heritage in each of the participating countries. It was intended for participants in the Project Learning program for young adults (PUM) in Novo Mesto. Over the course of the two-year project, participants, together with mentors, discovered European treasures on themes of art and crafts, history, architecture, and cuisine and actively participated in learning activities, preparation of materials and planning and implementation of mobility. By carrying out project activities, we offered participants numerous opportunities for general education, mobility to partner countries, the creation of social and cultural identity, we promoted personal growth and went beyond social exclusion.
In the project, we carried out 25 learning mobility (16 young people and 9 of their mentors), created a website and carried out a competition for the project logo. We also made two short films and posted them on YouTube (Atria of Novo mesto and PUM Novo mesto – 2011/2012), printed a presentation brochure, designed promotional aprons and produced the didactic game Memory (you can see product photos in the gallery).
The project leaders were Maruša Bajt and Maja Regina. For more information about the project, email@example.com.
