About project

The project "Active on the Border" is run by Strumien’s community in partnership with the city of Vratimov. It was financed by the Microproject Fund of the Euroregion Silesian Cieszyn - Těšínské Slezsko under the Interreg V-A Program Czech Republic - Poland and the state budget. The aim of the project is to renew and deepen the cooperation of Strumien and Vratimov communities. Meetings of children, youth and locals of twin towns are planned within the project in order to get to know each other better, to establish successful cooperation and simply to make friends.

There will be 5 cross-border events - three on the Polish side and two on the Czech side. Children and adults will meet in sports competitions and will also take part in traditional events like learning to bake bread, making butter and getting to know the customs of the people. Adults from Poland will visit the partner city, and the Czechs will join with their performance on the Harvest Festival in Drogomysl, so they learn about the Polish harvesting tradition. Moreover, a square at school in Drogomysl has been adapted as „Friendly Square”, which will provide additional facilities for school to do more sport and recreational activities with colleagues from Czech Republic. Open air paintings, chess games and other integration meetings will be held there. Through the project and together with our neighbors from abroad we would like to create opportunities for cooperation of local communities. Making meetings and sharing fun will help to remove barriers, create friendship, bond and integrate our target groups - local communities. In this way we can get to know ourselves, our customs, traditions, culture and the places we live in. We can break stereotypes about both countries and that is the purpose of the project - to get to know each other, to make friends, to create the solid foundation for further successful cooperation.

The project runs from January to November 2017. The City of Strumien and the City of Vratimov officially signed a cooperation agreement in 2014.
