CONTEST FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF YOUTH IDEAS IN THE COMMUNITY
Let’s get started!
The idea is going smoothly – just say how
If you have an idea to improve something in your neighbourhood, to solve a problem, satisfy a need of your community, or to simply think of a good way for you and your team to have a great time and have benefit from that, the “LOCOMOTIVE” is the right thing for you!
What is “LOCOMOTIVE”?
Youth programme for the empowerment of young people for active participation in social life.
Who can apply?
Informal groups of young people from the territory of Novi Sad (and all suburbs). There must be at least two of you, and at least one person must be older than 18.
How will “LOCOMOTIVE” support your idea?
It will enable everything you stated necessary for the idea (printing of posters for the announcement of your activity, purchase of stationary and educational material, different equipment etc.); organise training where you will learn “step by step” how actions are implemented; you will get mentor who will be with you during the entire process of the implementation and who will help you by his/her experience to remember everything.
What ideas do “LOCOMOTIVE” support?
You choose the topics yourself!
Last year, we supported the action of book exchange, demonstration of the model of greening of urban space, workshops for the preparation of healthy food and yoga for people with mental disabilities, public training and lecture about the game of Quidditch, the night of social games for young people and young parents and their children, projections of films of The School of Visual Anthropology, workshop about educational social games, projection of films about the integration of the representatives of national minorities in society, lecture about birds in urban environments, workshop about the creation of bird houses, focus group with pupils of high-schools about the prevention of suicide among young people, training and recording of podcast, workshop about the creation/transformation of cloths to male and female medieval clothes, dance workshop, workshop about storytelling approach to journalism and exhibition of works made within the workshop.

Until when is the contest open?
The final deadline is 20 July. But we encourage you to apply as soon as possible and to get the chance to improve your idea and ensure support, if necessary!
