100 First Times | International Youth Summer Camp
Where: Kaunas and Kaunas District
When: July 7th-15th, 2018
There’s always a first time for everything. What about us and 99 more first times in the middle of the summer? That’s 100 chances for you to feel free, implement new ideas, make a step forward, face some fears, cope with critique, challenge restrictions or question rules thrown by others.
WHAT’S 100 FIRST TIMES?
It’s an international youth summer camp, a co-creative platform for younger generations in 2018, year of the 100th anniversary of the restoration of Lithuania as an independent state, organised by Kaunas 2022 | European Capital of Culture.
Our biggest aim here is to foster an inclusive environment where hospitality, shared responsibility and creativity can set the foundation for future communities. We invite You to inspire Kaunas and Kaunas district with 100 new opportunities for a better living together during its International Youth Summer Camp.
At the confluence of the mighty rivers Nemunas and Neris, Kaunas, the second city in Lithuania, together with its green emerald Kaunas District, is a multi-layered crossroad where everybody is invited to connect and contribute!
We are so excited to show you what you are going to see, experience and explore at the International Youth Summer Camp 100 FIRST TIMES by Kaunas 2022 | European Capital of Culture!
The daily activities will consist in workshops, gatherings, cultural activities, brainstorms, physical practices, outdoor explorations, debates and celebrations. In a compelling, flowing, supportive and interactive experience for everyone involved, our core idea is to develop sustainable initiatives with the participants and to engage with the local communities of Kaunas and Kaunas District. Every day, extended Team Kaunas 2022 will take you to different locations of Kaunas and Kaunas District and unveil the stories of the city and its surroundings.
In a nutshell: Work-rest-fun (balanced in time), meet and greet, share laughters!
THE UNEXPECTED FESTIVAL
Every day, we go through the same rituals. We wake up, switch on our screens, read posts from the same people and the same news on news portals. We visit the same places, communicate with the same colleagues, and visit the same shops on our well-trodden paths home. But what if we burst the bubble of our routine and do something… unexpected? This is what the festival of surprises 100 First Times, organised by “Kaunas 2022”, will try to do: surprise, reveal something new, and spread the joy. Only in a different way: something less expected or seen before.
