The Youth that “hunted” Cluj-NapocaThe Youth that “hunted” Cluj-Napoca

Eighty young people from different areas of the globe have participated in the activity that combined the thrill caused by a traditional Treasure hunt with the delight of discovering by detail a city that they do not know. The event took place within the “Tool Fair XI”, the international fair of instruments and methods, organized with the purpose of offering the possibility for those who activate in the education domain to share innovative instruments that can be used in the teaching process.

The idea of the 2 hour event was that the youth from France, Germany, Turkey, Pakistan and others to not run on a timetable in their attempt to reach the checkpoints, but to do an unexpected tour of the city. Set in groups of 14 persons they went through a thematic track on the directions of the European Youth Capital: joy, vision, culture, space, work and power. Gabriel Uifălean, organiser and participant, went together with other young people the track dedicated to culture. They went by the Cathedral of Martyrs and Confessors built in the 20th century (photo) and through the Museum Square, where a message written on a wall caught their attention. „They were asking <<Are you living your dream?>>And then they wanted to take pictures with the wall. They said <<We need to take a picture because we’re living our dream!>>” said Gabriel. Also, he is the one that mentioned that the participants were excited about the city and the activities they did and that they were curious regarding the events that will occur next year, hen Cluj-Napoca will be the European Youth Capital.
