Mission and Objectives

We are striving to
- enhance young people's awareness of the social and political issues of their region and their time
- stimulate a self determined perception and judgement of social reality
- help resist indoctrination and incitement to violence
- train youth in speaking up and expressing their opinion
- offering an occasion to get to know young people from other parts of the world and learn about their society and culture
- help them communicate with people from other countries in a foreign language
- stimulate an attitude of, and appropriate skills for active citizenship
- stimulate reflection on issues of national identity:  what it means to be a "European"/A Jewish Israeli/A Palestinian etc.
In 2013, Evelyn Böhmer-Laufer has  received the Honorary Cross for Science and the Arts from the Austrian Ministry for Education, the Arts and Culture for ten continuous years of peacecamp work.

Main Projects / Activities

The main activities are annual "peacecamps" - multicultural encounters of four different groups of young people. They always involve Palestinian and Jewish Israelis and two European groups - one from Austria plus one from a country  behind the former Iron Curtain. So far we had Slovenian and Hungarian groups participating in peacecamps.
peacecamps' main activities are:
- getting-to know the "other's" culture, religion, history, society, nation, social reality, etc.
- learning the narrative of the "other"
- cope with mission impossible challenges
- debating (listening, arguing, speaking up one's mind)
- talking/presenting issues to an audience
- going on stage (giving a speech, a presentation, performing on stage)
- show4peace and welcome reception with speeches, awards and many invited guests (public figures and private persons)
Our experience is based on 12 peacecamps which we have realized since 2004, each new and different from the previous ones in many respects - with a different focus, different workshops, team-members, workshop-leaders and participants each time.
Right now peacecamp no. 13 is in preparation for July 2015.

Artistic Freedom under attack: Resistance and Resilience Film Screening and Discussion on Ukraine & India

الصورة
Invitation Artistic Freedom Under Attack

Payal Kapadia's film “A Night of Knowing Nothing” (India/France 2021) shows it clearly: artistic freedom presupposes that spaces for art and culture are open, democratic and anti-discriminatory. Repression of artists and cultural workers can manifest itself in many different ways.

On 7 April, a conversation about violations of artistic freedom and alliances of solidarity, focusing on Ukraine and India, is taking place at 19:30 in Top Kino in Vienna, with Sarita Jenamani (Pen Austria, Poet), Dariia Kuzmych (artist) & Klara Koštal (Austrian Commission for UNESCO), moderated by Cristina Peregrina.

Trailer: A Night of Knowing Nothing

The event is entirely in English. Info & Tickets at www.topkino.at

Main Projects / Activities

ACTIVE offers a broad spectrum of cultural activities ranging from free time activities via games and sports through to intercultural events for 150 learners per year. Types of events and activities are also ranging from focused on young people through migrants to generation spanning events. Secondly, it covers a broad range of continuing education. ACTIVE offers occupational training seminars in the field of outdoor sports and language lessons, eco-friendly courses for senior citizens and migrants, and education and recreation courses for youngsters and seniors too. Participants acquire recognized training certificates and are qualified as multipliers. ACTIVE provides safe space and necessary equipment for a number of active citizens which like to be physically active and enjoy sports in nature. The activities are inclusive and participatory as well as tailored to the specific needs
and interests of young children, youth, adults or senior citizens.

ACTIVE designs its activities to be in line with promoting active citizenship and youth entrepreneurship. The organization gives young people a chance to attend various projects, youth exchanges and seminars where they can improve their skills, better understand common values and civic engagement and develop a sense of initiative. Improvement of digital skills of young people is also one of ACTIVE’s priorities since it contributes to their employability. During international and local activities, different technologies are used and provided to participants. Since ACTIVE organizes a lot of sport events, those are also enriched by implementing the newest technologies. The organization is also active on social media, using it to raise awareness about the main topics of interest (youth participation, active citizenship, Erasmus+ program, sustainability, sports, youth work etc.)

To ensure social inclusion of all groups, ACTIVE’s volunteers regularly provide online language classes, focusing mostly on German language. The classes are free to attend and encompass a range of language levels and topics of interest depending on the demand of the participants.

ACTIVE team members have participated in multiple trainings and initiatives under the Erasmus+ and ACTIVE has experienced Erasmus+ Sport projects through volunteer activities implementing eco-friendly workshops and activities in Vienna woods. ACTIVE was not included in Eco-friendly sport as an official partner. The members of the organization joined the challenge and organized a clean-up of natural areas used for practicing sports in 7 EU countries.

All ACTIVE’s activities are in line with eco-friendly approaches and we take advantage of any chance to promote environmental protection and conservation. Organizing nature clean-ups, eco-friendly sport activities, supporting digital transformation and sustainable way of managing the organization all make ACTIVE an environmentally conscious and friendly organization.

ACTIVE regularly organizes hiking events in Vienna woods led by our members and volunteers. Events are open, available for anyone to join, but especially targeting young people and migrants living in Vienna and surrounding areas. The aim is to promote physical activity of young people, give them an opportunity to escape from their sedentary lifestyle and help them to integrate into the society by participating in the events. Events are many times attended by people new to the city and country and it is a great chance to meet new like-minded people and join a slowly growing network of young hikers. The hikes are always designed in an inclusive way, choosing appropriate difficulty, length and usually the are also combined with other activities such as plogging, herbal hiking, planting trees etc. Hiking itself is promoting social inclusion by not giving barriers to participation in physical activity.

How can you contribute to the Network in your country?

Being a new and growing organization we currently operate on local level and have started to engage also in international European projects. Our next steps would include creating a bridge between young people from the community participating in our projects and activities and local policy makers. As members of the ALF Network we could contribute to the Network's activities and initiatives in Vienna, Austria and help to extend the outreach of the Network. Since our organization currently mostly focuses on youth work, active citizenship, sustainability and physical activity, we could contribute to the content of ALF Network in those fields.

Why do you want to join the ALF Network?

As a recent and relatively small organization, we would like to elevate our activities on an international cooperation and support other organizations focusing on the development of young people and their civic engagement. Our goal is to reach local policymakers and help local people to participate in policy-making mostly in areas of interest of ACTIVE: youth participation, sustainability, active citizenship, sport etc. Joing the ALF Network will help us to achieve these goals , extend our range of activities, provide our services to other members and additionally also find interesting partners for futher cooperations with the aim of empowering young people in Europe and further.
