Aims & objectives

The main aim of this project is to involve young people into process of inter cultural learning on different music, clothes, tradition, culture and food. With this project we wanted to fill the void between our countries and learn more about the similarities and the differences between our cultures. Another objective was to gather young people from different countries and to promote what can be found in common, so they can find similarities among them and feel as one.

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

It was youth exchange, mainy with youth from 18 till 25. For most of them this was first experience. On this Youth Exchange there were participants from: Macedonia, Poland, Latvia, Italy and Romania.
