Living the 20 Workshops

In the framework of our project six workshops have been developed and you can find information about them here.

L20s Human Library

In Clarita’s first intergenerational workshop held in Purchena, we wanted to highlight the plurality of language and storytellers, inviting several human books to tell us about their life experiences, all revolving around the chestnut festival. With the confluence of children and grown-ups, we confirmed what we mentioned before: that language is alive, and that by telling stories we modulate and improve it.
We organized our second workshop on 29 November 2022 at the Kájoni János Library of Harghita County, in Miercurea Ciuc. The aim of the event was to bring together people of all ages, both young and old, to share interesting stories and to talk.
Thank you to Szakáli Mária, Tőke Magdolna and Kelemen Rozália for coming and telling their childhood stories to the young participants. We are also grateful to teacher Kántor Zsuzsi for bringing her class to the event. She should be proud of her clever and inquisitive students who asked so many interesting questions that the “books” didn’t know which one to answer first.

The Living the 20s Technology workshop

In the Living the 20s Erasmus+ project, we organised our first workshop on 26 October 2022 in Miercurea Ciuc. Twenty-six participants took part in the Treasure hunting with Klárika event, which aimed to introduce the participants to the history of some of the old buildings of our city.
The workshop held in Purchena revolved around new technologies, and how they help us today to collect and disseminate peoples’ oral tradition, which would otherwise fall into oblivion. The session was broadcast live and recorded for later use, and participants helped us to stick QR codes leading to the project’s social media in public spaces across our village.

Europe in your life workshop

The group of emotional helpers from the high school of Purchena, together with other members of the educational community, participated in the workshop Europe in your life. The exercise helped us expose the social differences that take place in our society in a very visual way. Afterwards, in the round table, we discussed key EU values such as European citizenship, tolerance, inclusion and non-discrimination.

On 7 February 2023, Europe in your life workshop was held in Miercurea Ciuc, where members of the old and young generations met to discuss what it means to be a European citizen, how they experience being a member of the EU and how they see the future of the European Union.

Many thanks for teacher Bartis Erika bringing her students to the event.

The event was attended by the representative of Care2Travel and two volunteers, who told the young people in detail about volunteering and the opportunities available. We would like to thank them for this. Last but not least, we would like to thank Mr Gyorgy Kocsis for honouring the event with his presence and his valuable contributions.
