KVT Finland (Finnish branch of SCI) hosts a project which is a part of an educational project called “Maailmantalkoot”. The Maailmantalkoot initiative supports KTV’s principles of solidarity, tolerance and international cooperation.
The Maailmantalkoot project aims to gather native and migrant communities together through workshops that are mainly held in school settings. Specifically for this project, KVT invites asylum seekers, refugees and people with an immigrant background to take part in the Global Education Initiative held in Northern Finland in January 2012. The aim is to bring people from different backgrounds together to construct and deliver workshops in local schools for young people between the ages of 14-19. These workshops will utilise mixed methods of delivery including media,
drama and debating. Therefore, volunteers with special interest and knowledge of performing arts, media, youth work and education are welcomed!
Maailmantalkoot-project’s main aim is to bring together local young people with international and Finnish volunteers in order to make them think, explore and share opinions and experiences on global issues such as human rights, migration, discrimination and equality. Furthermore, the Maailmantalkoot project is being supported by the Development Co-operation
Fund of the Finnish Foreign Ministry.
For this project we are looking for four (4) volunteers from abroad and (8) volunteers from Finland, of which four (4) are required to have an immigrant background.
W: During the first days of the project, volunteers will develop, practice and assess the workshop ideas prepared by KVT. At the end of the first week and during the second week volunteers will run workshops in secondary, vocational and high schools in Kemi and Tornio. During the workshops, volunteers will divide into smaller groups in order to maximize the potential of the delivery of these workshops. During evenings the aim is to offer and create opportunities to mix with the local community members and to become familiar with the Finnish winter activities!
S: Questions of global trends in migration and especially the issue of a forced migration and the status of refugees in the sending countries of the volunteers will be discussed together with questions of human rights, discrimination and equality. Secondly, through collaboration with the Red Cross Reception center for asylum seekers in Kemi, the status of asulym seekers and refugees in Finland will be explored. Volunteers are also requested to prepare material before attending the project in Finland. Further instructions will be sent in due course.
T: Tornio and Kemi in North-West of Finland. The distance between these two municipalities is about 30 km. Closest train station is in Kemi. Closest airports are in Kemi-Tornio, Oulu and Rovaniemi. This is a chance to see Northern Finland during the winter so be prepared for snow, cold and long nights!
