Main theme of project is European awareness through art and culture activities. On the one hand, sharing own culture and customs with other nations is important for better understanding of different nationalities and developing the intercultural learning of young people. Understanding is necessary for solid and peaceful world. On the other hand, knowledge about EU citizenship and the rights that go with it and their comparison to non-EU rights is significant for building a strong, mutual future without racism and xenophobia.Furthermore, this activity will allow participants to better and deepen their knowledge, acquire new abilities and tools through arts and crafts. During project following methods and activities of non-formal education will be implemented: getting-to-know-each-other, ice-breaking and team-building games, pedagogical games on cultural diversity, European awareness and human rights; learning and teaching some arts and crafts, representing famous artists and people who had a great impact on the country's culture, karaoke night (presenting our national songs), intercultural evenings, discovering the environment through outdoor activities, co-leading games for children of local summer camp and presentation of Youth in Action program and Youth-pass.
