Theme & Objectives: how to imagine a ‘new start situation’: what’s it like to leave everything behind and start all over? What do you like to keep of your own culture in a new one, what would you like to change and what are the things you can make a compromise on? Possibilities to manage a new environment where everybody can live happily and in harmony by discussing a lot of issues. These issues can be of any kind: type of justice, government, authority and safety; system of payment for work and labour-union; youth unemployment, healthy environment, developing a new national symbol, anthem, sports discipline.

Number of participants of each country: 5 participants + 1 group leader

Activities & Methods: Situation simulation – each delegation is stranded on the moon. We’ll have to stay there for a very long time, so it’s necessary to create a new community with its own rules. Which things of your own culture are a must to keep? For you / your country? Which things would you like to change and can you compromise with? How do you think to manage a new environment where everybody can live happily and in harmony? Through discussions, role playing games, experiences we will build a new colony on the moon, step by step!
