35 young people without prior experience in Erasmus + projects, from Turkey, Croatia, Greece, Italy, Macedonia, Portugal and Romania will work 9 days in order to brake some barriers and to build bridge between them. Marginalization, integration, radicalism and identity would be the main topics for discussion.
Project objectives are:1. Cross-cultural learning and dialogue between the participants from different countries, with a view to promoting mutual understanding and tolerance;2. To increase youngsters' knowledge about different culture/history/religion;3. Development of creativity and involvement of young people in civil life through promoting Erasmus+ opportunities among them.;5. To learn how to respect each opinion and break stereotypes through conducting of evaluation and discussion with young people from other countries;6. To promote good neighborly relations between the EU Member and non-EU States and to provide space for friendship and relationship through art and culture.This cultural exchange should be the first step for many young people between 18 and 30 to get more involved in the youth work to start look at the opportunities in the NGO sector and to start organizing larger scale projects where the impact would be even bigger.
