AKZENTE Austria

 17-23 Octombrie 2007 in Orasul Salzburg, eu, Eugenia Barbu am participat la un seminar "Study visit on local and international volunteer-management"/Action 4.3 – Youth in Action Program,  combinat cu o mare conferinta "Empowerment across continents", despre voluntariat si legatura creata de acesta intre doua continente: America de sud si Europa.

Am fost complesita de:
1. structura AKZENTE si modul extraordinar in care lucreaza echipa acestei organizatii. Povestea nasterii ei a inceput cu vreo 18 ani in urma si la inceput au fost doar cativa voluntari, iar acum sunt angajati la diferite departamente 50 de oameni. Sediul lor este undeva la nivelul cel mai de sus al unei cladiri, inconjurat de o terasa care te lasa sa vezi perspectiva acestui oras Salzburg (cetatea sariii), oras care are numai 400 000 de lucuitori. Activitatea Akzente este stras legata de autoritatea locala a orasului.
2. Barbara si Verena, coordonatoarele programelor interculturale, pe care le cunosteam doar din emailuri, m-au impresionat prin varsta (nici una nu are inca 30 de ani) dar au o maturitate profesionala ce ar putea fi model pentru multi "adulti"
3. zapada care a venit nemiloasa… dar foarte frumoasa

In Salzburg am intalnit-o pe Ioana Bohalteanu, pictorita noastra, care este la momentul greu al adaptarii la viata de EVS. E cam nemultumita ca nu poate avea sarcini serioase asa cum se intampla cand era voluntar in ACTOR… Sa speram ca sugestiile mele date ei si celor care ar putea schimba ceva vor aduce mai multa bucurie in viata "grea" a Ioanei… Oricum sunt multe galerii de arta, care poate vor fi interesate sa ii gazduiasca o noua expozitie IOANA BOHALTEANU… (Nota: prima ei expozitie europeana va avea loc la inceputul anului viitor in Olanda!!)
www.ioanabohalteanu.blogspot.com -un nou blog despre EVS….
 Rezultate posibile…
*un training despre managemntul voluntarilor organizat la anul de Akzente
*un nou EVS al Ioanei de 3 luni in Grecia la Atena intr-o organizatie care se ocupa cu arta exotica din Africa, Asia si America de Sud
*un proiect de parteneriat EVS cu Guatemala
* un schimb in Salzburg in vara anului viitor despre sport, mancare sanatoasa si animatie
*multe oportunitati pentru parteneriate
 

 Between the 17th-28th of October 2007, I (Eugenia Barbu) have participated in

Salzburg

at a seminary merged with a big conference about voluntary and the relations created by it between two continents:
South America
and
Europe
. 

 I was very surprised in a pleasant way by: 
 1.  The structure of AKZENTE and the extraordinary way the team works in this organization. Its story began around 18 years ago, when it had only a few volunteers, while now it has 50 people working for different departments. Its headquarters is somewhere on the highest level of a building, surrounded by a terrace that allows forming a good perspective of Salzburg- also called the citadel of salt, which has only 400000 inhabitants. AKZENTE’s activity is closely connected to the local authority of the town. 
 2. Barbara and Verena, the coordinators of the intercultutal programs, whom I knew from e-mails only, impressed me because even though none of them had reached 30 years, they had a professional maturity that can be a model for lots of  ‘adults’. 
 3. The snow that came with no mercy…but in the end it was very beautiful. 
 In

Salzburg

I’ve met Ioana Bohalteanu, our painting artist, which is confronting the tough moments of adapting to EVS life. She’s rather unpleasant that there she can’t have serious tasks like she had when she was in A.C.T.O.R…. Let’s hope that the suggestions I’ve given her, as well as those to people who can change something for her will help and make Ioana happier. Anyway, there are many art galleries which may be interested in the future to host her new exhibition, IOANA BOHALTEANU. (By the way, her first European exhibition will take place at the beginning of the next year in

Holland

!!!!) 

 You can catch up with what she’s done lately on www.ioanabohalteanu.blogspot.com , a new blog about EVS. 
 -Possible results of my participation there: 
 -A training about the management of voluntary organized next year by AKZENTE 
Ioana’s participation in a new EVS in

Greece

,

Athens

for 3 months, for an organization with interests in the exotic arts from
Africa
,
Asia
and
South America

A partnership project for EVS with

Guatemala

. 

An exchange in

Salzburg

in next year’s summer about sports, healthy foodand animation. 

Lots of opportunities for partnerships. 

One thought on “AKZENTE Austria

  1. Mi-as dori ca la un moment dat sa ajungem si noi la fel de performanti in ceea ce priveste EVS-ul ca cei de la AKZENTE… Pentru ca sunt convinsa ca o astfel de experienta ne va ajuta si pe noi ca voluntari cat si va imbunatatii imaginea Romaniei in Europa
