Transnational Youth Initiative CALL : "DiverCity" EduLARP
we are sending you invitation to join the project made by our volunteers: transnational youth initiative (Ka2 action) in topics of LARP, multiculturalism, tolerance, education, innovation.
"DiverCity" EduLARP is a transnational youth initiative project we plan to submit under Erasmus+ program. It will consist of 21 participants- 7 persons per country (aged 18-25), 12 months, 3 countries, 3 youth mobilities, local activities and one goal - to create a universal eduLARP scenario shaping tolerance towards cultural differences and people from other nationalities living in partner countries among participants. LARP (Live Action Role Playing) is "activity on the border between game and art, during which participants create and experience the story together, playing roles similar to improvised theater". EduLARP is LARP focused on the education of game participants. A properly designed scenario of such a game can be an innovative educational tool, which in this case will encourage participants (players) to develop an attitude of tolerance and empathy towards otherness. As project initiators, we are passionate about LARPs and eduLARPs, and we have experienced how much impact they have on shaping new competences and attitudes.

1. Three Transnational Project Meetings: kickoff, midterm and sum up
