European openness offers an opportunity for all young people

Nantes Creative Generations also wants to get young people from Nantes involved, in particular those who have the fewest opportunities, to help them to develop projects and get active in Europe

NCG on Tour

Presentation

NCG also aims at supporting Nantes youngsters with fewer opportunities, with no or short experience of travelling, to have no or limited experience abroad thanks to the NCG European network.

Every year, three groups of 4 people (aged 18 -25) go on a tour around Europe in order to discover cities and projects of the NCG network members.
 
About the group of young people :

  •  They don’t know each other before departure
  • They are given the opportunity to travel 4-5 days and dedicate at least one day meeting the NCG European partners to discover their project. They are then asked to prepare a short movie and photo report to present in Nantes during NCG Forum.
  • Before departure, local NGOs provide them with advice and support to prepare the trip (English language workshops, practical details, cultural information, etc.)
  • All their expenses are covered by Nantes Métropole

Once in the city, they are warmly greeted by Europeans parteners who :

  • meet them and present the project they showcased during NCG and also their ongoing projects
  • give them tips and advices for their stay (places to visit, people to meet, etc.) that they can do on their own.

These experiences are very successful , which is mostly due to the great way they are welcomed all over Europe by the NCG members ! This experience is very relevant for the Nantes youngsters who really improve their levels of self-confidence, English skills, openness to new cultures, citizenship involvement, etc.
