With this youth exchange we aimed to gather together youngsters from different cultures, backgrounds as we believe that young people are the ground of the community we live in. Youth exchange helped to change attitudes and behaviors of young people towards diversity and discrimination and encourage adults to recognize the value that young people’s contributions bring to society at local, national and international levels. Through the exchange, the participants understand better that their differences are enrichment for all of them, and that all are part of the common.

The main objectives of the youth exchange were:

  • To give an opportunity to young people to learn about the different EU institutions, EU rights, Youth Goals and EU processes;
  • To exchange opinions with European politicians and policy makers;
  • To foster solidarity and tolerance, respect and mutual understanding, dialogue and cooperation between young people coming from different religious, cultural and social backgrounds;
  • To prevent the negative impact of discriminatory action, fighting against exclusion and marginalization of young people with fewer opportunities;
  • To encourage young people to participate in the solutions for social hindrance, thus stimulating their prospective role as active citizens;
  • To calibrate the understanding of the European values and the freedom of movement;
  • To highlight the connection between European citizenship, human rights, democracy and intercultural learning, together with the underlying values.

Participants of the youth exchange were from Greece Greece, Italy Italy, France France, Czech Republic Czechia, Slovenia Sierra Leone, North Macedonia North Macedonia, Estonia Estonia, Germany Germany, Romania Romania and Slovakia Slovakia. There were 5 participants from each country.
