More than two years ago, a group of 250 students form all over the world travelled together from Greece to Hong Kong on board of The Scholar Ship (TSS), a transnational learning community designed to develop intercultural competence.  It was from this connection that last summer in Berlin a group of TSSers decided to create a follow-up project in order to nourish the ideas creating aboard TSS and to create a new venue to develop ideas of dialogue and cooperation further. RecrearSpanish for recreate—is based on the belief that group collaboration and brainstorming are extremely powerful and can be channeled to create good in society.

Recrear, envisioned as a platform for materializing public benefit projects, will be aimed at supporting young people in developing and carrying out projects in the field of international development. The founders of Recrear believe in the potential of young activists, who are generating a number of promising ideas often lack the resources and support to develop their independent projects and put their skills into practice. Recrear aims to provide the necessary guidance for these projects by connected global resources and generating micro-projects that are developed and run by young people for young people worldwide.

Recrear will be launched in August 2010 out of Recrear.beta, a 3 week conference with selected participants from around the world who will live together, engaging in cultural exchange, leadership workshops, NGO training, and develop a common vision about positive global change.  

In order for Recrear.beta—and thus Recrear—to come to fruition we are trying to raise 30,000 Euros in order to cover the cost of hosting and inviting guest speakers, offsetting food and housing expenses, and contributing to traveling costs for participants.  Our need to raise more funds is dictated by our interest in keeping the participant fee as accessible as possible. For the project we are charging each participant 400 Euros, which will cover their room and board. 

In the attached document, we encourage you to read more about Recrear and Recrear.beta.  You will find information about our organization objectives, our 1 and 5-year goals, a sample of participant and guest speaker biographies, a description the activities planned for Recrear.beta, and our budget.

We look forward to receive feedback and support from you.  If you are involved with an organization potentially interested in being a partnerof Recrear, let us know; we are eager to set up new partnerships.
