Aims & objectives

Online interaction has
become more attractive to young people than traditional, face-to-face communication, signaling that civil society needs to keep up with the change
of mindset if they want to achieve their goals.
Therefore, our projects objectives were:
1. Improving the skills of 29 youth workers in promoting tolerance for cultural diversity, intercultural dialogue, and combating discrimination among young people, through the use of multimedia software (content creation) and social media
platforms (dissemination channels).

2. Developing the capacity of 8 NGOs on the effectiveness of awareness campaigns by learning new digital skills and exchanging good practices between practitioners from EU countries and countries in the EaP region.

3. Promoting Erasmus + and ESC programs as collaboration tools for future projects/events by creating a HUB, in order to achieve new collaborations, share specific results and approaches, good practices and successful strategies used among participating NGOs in the EU and the region EaP.

Target group & international/intercultural composition of the group & team

The project involved 29 participants from Romania, Armenia, Belarus, Latvia, Croatia, Georgia, Poland, Ukraine and the Czech Republic. The participants are the direct beneficiaries of mobility, youth workers who promote the message "tolerance for diversity" in their daily tasks and responsibilities and who part of the staff of the partner NGOs (youth workers, trainers, facilitators, community workers, social workers, volunteers, etc. who apply non-formal methods and are directly involved in working with young people).
