This being the main theme of our project reflects the needs of multiple European societies since all of them, due to different reasons, face social exclusion. It will aim to develop among participants active expression of civic participation which will strengthen common European values such as solidarity, openness, understanding and liberty for combating poverty and marginalization through and in volunteering. It will bring together 27 participants, including training team, coming from 8 different European countries: Czech Republic ,Croatia, Cyprus, Romania, Italy ,Spain,Bulgaria and Poland.
''Europe for inclusion'' will be held in Limassol, Cyprus from 5th to 15th of October 2015. Through using non formal learning methods such as workshops, discussions, simulation games and forum theatre it will provide to participants the competencies, skills and knowledge about poverty, marginalization, sustainable peace, human rights, anti discrimination policies and social cohesion in order for them to take actions as multipliers for greater social and community involvement in the framework of Erasmus+ Programme. The implementation of this project will result in higher level of awareness about the importance of social inclusion in the communities involved which will lead to greater effort in developing and implementing long term inclusion strategies, so we could all engage in making society where similarities are celebrated and differences are respected.
