From 15th of October 2018 till the 21st of October 2018, ERASMUS+ in Spain, in the Basque Region

What does Empower mean?

1. Give (someone) the authority or power to do something.
2. Make (someone) stronger and more confident, especially in controlling their life and claiming their rights.

What does Empower means to me after spending 5 days in Spain, along with other 36 participants from all over the world?

EMPOWER 2018 – Constantin

To me Empower means to make you voice heard in a crowd full of voices. To me Empower means to aid yourself by helping others.
You see we now live in a world full of complex processes, and day by day our world becomes much more complex. You see that it goes geometrical, the change in our societies, at our workplace and more or less in our families. You see that Globalization is going so fast that most of the people won’t handle those massive changes, or at least they won’t want to handle them. And all in all you see that along with those changes a lot of problems are born: poverty in some countries, war-zones, racism, terrorism etc.-please notice that those problems are as old as humankind though.
That’s why people should come together and discuss, debate and hug each other, cause at the end of it all we are all human beings, and a project like that helps people from different backgrounds and cultures to come together and get to a point of understanding that they can build a better world starting a change from the inside.

EMPOWER 2018 – Constantin

It was amazing to get to know so much stories in such a little timeline, to play tactical games and start hating each other for the moment, and then smile and hug each other afterwards. I’d like to thank everybody for this projects and let you guys know that I think we made a great, big, team or even a fresh, small, but international family.

Thanks ABARKA, Erasmus+. Thanks Daniela, Mister K. and Mr. Motivation. Thanks for helping young people to open-up and make their visions wider.

Best of wishes for Y’all, Yes Right,

Constantin Dascal (Youth Participant from Moldova)
