Baltic Buffet - Food Fusion is the youth exchange project, that bring together youth from Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and Spain, aimed to bring together individuals from different cultures to learn about unity in diversity through this project where the theme will be creativity in cooking and in life, culture, healthy eating habits and healthy lifestyles through non-formal learning and experience sharing. Baltic Buffet project involve seminars from motivational speakers, interactive activities and workshops (games, debates, quizzes etc.), through which participants can improve on their core skills and help with their personal development as well as doing voluntary work in the community to help improve the local area.
The venue for the Baltic Buffet - Food Fusion was in Riga, Latvia. The youth learned about how they can come together to combat prejudices, exchange knowledge and learn from each other based on common interests. The theme of the youth exchange is how a simple thing as food intake, when being prepared consciously, can be used to unite one another and learn how we can be happy and healthy by addressing our true needs. They also learned how to cook healthy vegetarian food based on Ayurveda knowledge about types of body.
Everyone received a Youthpass certificate and we encouraged participants to make their own Europass CV as this will help them with their employability in the future.
The participants of "The Baltic Buffet - Food Fusion" are young people and workers of the youth of ages between 16 and 30 years. All of us share an interest in relation to art and healthy food, interest in the fight against discrimination, the development of communication skills and the intercultural and interreligious dialogues. It is a varied group of people, with different backgrounds, cultures and religions, with different socioeconomic conditions and with different abilities for learning. Although the level of knowledge of English as a common language is different for each team, it is an appropriate level to communicate without barriers amongst the participants during the activity. All of us have in common the desire to build new friendships with young people from different countries Europe, to live new experiences of both learning and relationships inter-personal, to explore new values and enrich ourselves by sharing cultural and religious diversity. All the leaders of the participating partners are workers in the field of youth, with experience and motivation in youth exchange projects. Each activity is designed so that it can be developed in the same way for both men as for women, and it will be developed so that no part of the group is disadvantaged with respect to the others. We want all participants to be able to join the activities at all the levels, physical, intellectual, emotional and cultural. We will provide the same facilities both men and women and we will make sure that the ratio of man to woman ratio is close to 50:50. Our goal is to form a youth group balanced in age, gender and without space for discrimination.
