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 less opportunities, with no or short experience of travelling, to have a short experience abroad thanks to the NCG European network.

Each year, 3 group of 4 people (aged 18 -25) are having a trip to Europe in order to discover cities and projects of the NCG network members.

 
About the group of youngsters :
- They don’t know each other before departure
- They are proposed 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 duting NCG Forum.
- Before departure, local NGOs provide them with advices 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, theay arez generally 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 succesful , and is mostly due to the great way they are welcomed all over Europe by the NCG members ! This experience is so relevant for the Nantes youngsters who really improve with self-confidence, English skills, openness to new cultures, citizenship involvement, etc.
