ABOUT THE PROJECT
The intercultural diversity of most countries in Europe is growing day by day, and this topic is rarely covered in school curricula. Embracing the diversity creates a healthier society, where the cultural differences are accepted. All countries of the partnership are dealing with the problem of cultural understanding, are trying to involve different pedagogical approaches and teaching methods. We share similar views about cultural diversity but we have diverse knowledge and experiences about the youth work situation in our communities. The idea of this project was driven from that fact, that we have to bring various methods and tools which the youth workers from culturally mixed areas can effectively use and by that develop their competencies for working with youth from different cultural backgrounds.
Project Aim and Objectives
