Acquiring these, they would be able to more easily relate to the others, and take a more active part in the life of their communities as well as in international activities. The overall aim of the project is to make participants aware of their culture and ancient roots through discovering similarities and sharing common problems and opportunities as well as human heritage

Project objectives:

Culture & Rhythms will end with a celebratory open-air workshop in different locations. One of the flash mob events will be video recorded and shared on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Instagram), partner organization webpages, sent to participants and partner networks.

Furthermore, both YE activities link to the general priorities of Erasmus Plus and KA1 – reaching out to marginalized young people, promoting diversity, intercultural dialogue, common values of freedom, tolerance and respect of human rights as well as enhancing critical thinking and sense of initiative of young people By organizing this international youth exchange we want to enter in a process of entering in a process of.
