The main theme is to find the ways how different cultures can peacefully live beside each other in multicultural societies; Also, assist young people how to develop tolerance, understanding and cordial interaction.
Objectives of the action were:

Training methods used & main activities

The training used non-formal educational activities, presentations, mini seminars, discussions, simulation games, individual and team working, visit to natural and cultural sights, intercultural and sport activities.
We worked with the existing experience of the participants, provide space for sharing their knowledge, and guided to new experience within the sessions.
The meeting encourages acquaintance with each others cultures, traditions, and lifestyles.
We strongly encouraged participants to bring presentation of their countries that will respond the topics of the training.

Outcomes of the activity

The feedback that we received from participants confirmed our expectations: the TC was a success and we created a wonderfull group dynamic also through the activities.
Follow up: the most remarkable outcomes to mention are the new Erasmus+ projects to apply soon and the new NGOs which will be created after the inspiration coming from the week together.
