Edgar From Spain

My name is Edgar, I am 26 years old and I am from Málaga, a beautiful city in the seaside of south Spain. I moved to the north of England to be a volunteer for sport and health across generation with the organization Momentum World. Recently I have made a training course “Walking for Health” to be able to lead health walks in the area of Keswick. This is going to be a good opportunity to show people the
importance of taking care of themselves and the nature around us.

Eva From Greece

Eva From Greece

 

Hello everyone! This is Eva from Greece. It’s been around three months since I moved to England and it turned out to be the greatest choice that I could have made. After experiencing a short-term project in Romania, I wanted to continue with a long-term one. But where? Randomly, I found myself applying to a project in the Lake District about environmental sustainability. So, here I am…living in the UK while volunteering under the aegis of Momentum World. And not only that! As a person who enjoys experiencing the world through traveling, but also as someone who wants to build her “future” based on her interests, I find myself more than lucky for chasing this opportunity. Not only am I experiencing a new country and culture, but I’m having actual training in one of my biggest passions –film-making – while working upon projects, sponsored by Momentum World. In less than three months I’ve already travelled around the UK. I’ve met people around the area while creating a lovely multicultural company of co-volunteers. Day by day, I’m getting to know more and more about international opportunities, realizing the importance of these and all the above through filming.

Adult Education Through Sport

Adult Education Through Sport

In my capacity as Operations Director of Momentum World CIC, alongside my colleague and Creative Director Paul Oxborough I attended what is known as a kick off meeting for a new project led by our Polish partner “Adult Education through Sport” in Warsaw, Poland. The project involves use of our newly developed techniques around 360 degree filming to record training plans based on using sport and non formal education methods to help adults understand concepts such as social inclusion.
This type of meeting follows a well tried format working out number of phases of projects, where and when each phase takes place, the numbers and logistics of getting participants in place, which partner is responsible for which part and the finances of the project. We were able to agree on all of this and managed to spend a short time being guided round Warsaw by an excellent tour guide who took us to some more out of the way places where most tourists wouldn’t go. The day was wrapped up with a traditional Polish dinner in a lovely local restaurant.
Lots covered in a short time and a big thanks to our host Michal Braun who looked after us very well.
Acting For Inclusion, Greece

Acting For Inclusion, Greece

Youth Exchange from 1st to 9th July 2019.  For 4 participants and 1 leader.  The required age for the participants is 17 to 25.  The leader can be any age over 18. In a multicultural society and a changing world young people, living in
big cities and rich countries, aspire to happiness and success through material goods combined with technology. The current crisis highlights the gap between dreams and real potential, and emigration combined with unemployment makes even the powerful countries unable to control the phenomena of xenophobia, social racism and aggression against immigrants and refugees. At the same time “rich” countries, do not feel themselves able to accept migration and thus walls are built, where we
thought the borders were completely disappeared. Acting for inclusion is a youth exchange that aims to reflect on migration and unemployment. These two phenomena combined together represent an opportunity for discussion and exchange, so that the reality of multi-ethnic coexistence does not generate discrimination.
