COOLture is an international youth exchange that will take place in Rijeka, Croatia from 2nd until 12th November 2015. The project will bring together 48 young people (group leaders included) from 8 different countries: Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Italy, Malta, Latvia, Slovakia and Romania.
The aim of the exchange is to help the participants develop global understanding, cross-cultural awareness and sensitivity. We would like to build tolerant attitude through effective multicultural communication and to encourage open-mindedness and acceptance which are essential for creating diversity and tolerance in our society.
The programme will address some issues in our modern society such as effective cross-cultural communication, stereotypes and discrimination, acceptance and tolerance in order to encourage inernational and intercultural cooperation.
The methodology used for all the activities is based on experiential learning in the intercultural environment. We use tools of non-formal education, based on „learning by doing” approach. All the participants will therefore take an active part in the project by contributing with their experience and by adopting responsible and proactive attitude during the exchange that they will consequently apply back home. Our aim is to involve the participants fully during the exchange, to take ownership of their learning and the content of the exchange, to be engaged physically, mentally and emotionally.
The project aims to achieve long-term impact on the participants’ future lives, the way they act, think and behave in their everyday life and on their role in the society. We expect them to multiply good ideas and behaviour, spread practices of positive attitude and vision.
