This project is important, active part of this initiative of youth civil society organizations, to empower their young people to take an active role in enabling intercultural dialogue and tolerance through decreasing the level of hate speech, stereotypes and prejudice among young people in the Europe.

The main Aim of this project is empowering of key competences, skills and attitudes of youth workers to provide intercultural dialogue, increase intercultural learning mobility opportunities and enhancing intercultural competences of young people within youth work and non-formal learning in Europe.

Specific objectives:

- Empower youth workers/leaders to include intercultural learning component in their work to provide youth with necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes to promote peace, intercultural dialog, against hate speech, discrimination and violence.

- Empower youth workers/leaders to explore and integrate different innovative and creative approach, tools, methods and resources in their work with and for young people for promotion, education and practices intercultural dialog and intercultural learning.

- To exchange realities and experiences in intercultural dialogue and explore the applicability of intercultural competences in youth work through non-formal education and creative expressions of young people

Youth work brings change through diversity of its approaches and provides young people with space and empowerment to express. Youth workers are the key element of this process and they are the first to be addressed.

For this reason, we have realized that there are two most effective methods to empower young women and men to be agents of social change in intercultural dialogue in Europe:

1. Youth work and Non-formal learning

Youth work and Non-formal learning are one of the most effective tools for achieving the impact on youth, ensuring a safe environment for young people for constructively dealing with intercultural challenges and providing opportunities for intercultural learning and enhancing intercultural competences

2. Creativity and innovations

Contemporary youth work has to combine potentials of existing and develop innovative approach, methods and tools and resources (of line and on line) of social intervention in the frame of intercultural learning process with young women and man.
