Corona and the youth exchanges

In the first half of 2020 we have postponed some youth meetings. Currently we are trying to coordinate the dates. We will publish them here when it is certain that the activities can take place.

current youth exchanges

Here you will find all the encounters that are currently being planned. For each one, you will find whether it has already been approved or not.

Youth encounters are group activities in which we work together towards a concrete goal. Tourist activities take place, but are in the background. For this reason, and thanks to the support of taxpayers' money (mostly from the EU), the participant contributions are rather symbolic and can be waived if necessary.

In any case, you can apply using this form. We will contact you immediately to clarify further details.

Project type: Multilateral Youth Exchange
Project location: Jerusalem / Israel
Project language: English
Total number of participants: 48
Number of participants Roter Baum: 12
Participation fee: 50 Euro
Countries involved: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Germany, Israel, Italy, Portugal and Serbia
Dates: 14 - 25.4.2020

Anyone who has been there in recent years knows what that means! Love for music meets colourful diversity. Warmth of heart meets strained nerves from hours of rehearsals in the stuffy cellar hole. Strangers become like-minded and like-minded people become friends.

But what are you actually doing at "Musik for human rights"?

Very simple: 42 people from 6 countries come together and form three project bands. Professional musicians are mixed with amateurs and write, compose and rehearse 2 songs together, which are then performed on a stage for the final concert. Participating countries are Bosnia and Herzegovina, Germany, Israel, Italy, Portugal and Serbia.

Each exchange also has a specific theme under which it is located and what the bands are oriented towards. This time it is about the Shoah. The Shoah refers to the attempted extermination of the Jews. It is estimated that more than 6 million people were murdered during this genocide. The results of the joint work will be performed during the Yom HaShoah, the Jewish day of remembrance, at the Yad Vashem memorial.

Furthermore, you will have the unique opportunity to get to know the land of Israel. Excursions to the north, to the Dead Sea and if possible to Bethlehem complete the project.

We are looking for musicians of all kinds and people who can make the project visible in the media team. The latter can be done through texts, videos or photography via our social media channels or our blog.

So if you would like to get to know new people, countries and cultures and if the stage air is appealing to you, then register in this form (multiple registrations possible)!

We are looking forward to you!

Project type: Multilateral Youth Exchange

Total number of participants: 25+10
Number of participants Roter Baum: 5+2

This youth exchange is mainly aimed at teenagers. Together you will design your youth centre in a creative way. We want to know from you how you imagine it to be. Depending on what is most important to you, this will be done by creating a video, a song, an infographic (which can be anything made of paper) or a comic. You will get support from young but experienced people.

We will use all of this for another project where we want to work out how youth centres in Europe should be. Of course we have our own ideas. But we want your ideas, because only then can youth centres be such that you find them great. That's why we are collecting everything and will present it on a very big stage in Europe. 

Of course you will also meet other people, play, dance, create and learn together with them. The project takes place in Cerașu. This is a village 100 km north of Bucharest and has everything you could imagine in a village, including farriery.

The project takes place during school hours. If you need a leave of absence, you will usually get one. Schools are encouraged to release students for extracurricular activities. You will receive the necessary paperwork from us.

If you like the project, please fill in this form or call us!

It is now a small tradition that we combine our project with the "FreeDom Art Festival". And that has its reasons. The summer is a very grateful time to travel to Serbia, after all it is hot and there are good reasons to drink a lot. For example lemonade or pear, apple, apricot and quince. On the other hand, the festival gives us a very excellent platform for performances, which are used by our three project bands. This is also always put in a good light, which leads to beautiful videos, which are created by our media team. And last but not least, the freedom of art is a human right that is endangered again and again. The festival also had to experience this painfully...

If you enjoy either making music together or if you want to participate in the media documentation of it, if you want to develop and share your ideas about human rights and if you are prepared for long days and short nights, then this youth meeting is the right place for you.

There is only one registration form between you and participation, which has to be filled out fast enough, because the cult status of this part of the project arouses many desires.

Nach zwei Jahren in Berlin und dem Ausflug nach Ceuta im letzten Jahr, geht es nun nach Bukarest. Während der 9 Projekttage werden wir uns auf die Suche nach der Natur in der großen Stadt begeben. In kleineren Gruppen werden wir uns den Themen Umwelt und Verkehr, Umwelt und Wasser, Landschaft, Umweltverschmutzung und Müll sowie Ernährung und Landwirtschaft widmen. Gemeinsam geht ihr auf Fotosafari und gestaltet eine Ausstellung. Von jeder Fotografin und jedem Fotograf wird je ein Bild aus der Heimat und eines, welches während des Projektes entstanden ist, ausgewählt und ausgestellt.
Doch zu einer Jugendbegegnung gehört auch, dass wir uns kennenlernen, gemeinsam arbeiten, diskutieren und feiern. So lernt ihr nicht nur neue Leute kennen, sondern auch gleich deren Länder.

Participants are selected after receipt of the application, taking into account the explanatory text in the form.

PARTICIPATION FEE
The participation fee covers travel costs, accommodation, meals, programme and support. Please transfer the TNB at least 14 days before departure. If this payment deadline is financially not possible for you, please contact us to make an individual agreement.
