ASSIGNMENTS for TALKS4PEACE

PEACECAMP 2015: Two assignments for the participating groups as a preparation for TALKS4PEACE

(1) MAKE A SHORT VIDEO WITH YOUR GROUP ABOUT MINORITIES/HUMAN RIGHTS ISSUES IN YOUR COMMUNITY (MAX. 5`, ENGLISH OR ENGLISH SUBTITLES).
Which people are regarded as minorities in you school or in your home town? Do they have equal rights? Should they have equal rights? What is their situation? Do they have any problems? Do you see any possible improvements?
We are interested in your personal views!
The videos will be shown and discussed at the peacecamp 2015.

(2) MAKE ONE GROUP POSTER SHOWING TWO PERSPECTIVES (A) & (B) OF WHAT IT MEANS FOR YOU TO BE AN ISRAELI-JEWISH / ISRAELI-PALESTINIAN / HUNGARIAN / AUSTRIAN TEENAGER TODAY

For the Austrians and Hungarians:
(a) What does it mean for us to be Hungarian/Austrian?
What do we regard as inspiring, as something to be proud of? On the other hand, is there anything about our national heritage or present politics to feel uneasy about?
(b) What does it mean for us to be a European, or a citizen of the EU?
What do we regard as promising, as a great opportunity? On the other hand, is there anything about the future of a multi-national Europe which makes us feel uneasy?

For the Jewish and Palestinian Israelis:
(a) What does it mean to us to be Jewish/Palestinian Israelis?
What do we regard as inspiring, as something to be proud of? On the other hand, is there anything about our national heritage or present politics to feel uneasy about?
(c) What does it mean to me to live together with the Palestinians/Jews in my country? What do we regard as promising, as a great opportunity? On the other hand, is there anything about the idea of a common future with the others which makes us feel uneasy?
