IDEA BEHIND THE PROJECT

With this youth exchange, we want to provide youngsters with a safe place and environment to explore their inner selves and emotions as well as their prejudices, fears and impulsive behaviors.
1. Self-awareness: You will develop emotional literacy by learning more about emotional intelligence and emotional agility.
2. Encouraging diversity, tolerance and mutual acceptance: You will learn more about other cultures and traditions and will be encouraged to promote diversity, intercultural and inter-religious dialogue.
3. We will be building bridges through emotions between people from different nationalities, religions, cultures and social statuses and use emotions as a way to connect and put ourselves in the shoes of others.“
