Everyone smiles in the same way.
Start date: Feb 1, 2016,

Youth exchange titled ”Everyone smiles in the same way” was a multilateral project within Erasmus+ programe. The project took place in Murzasichle, Podhale between 19-26 of March 2016. There were 40 participants, 18- to 25-year-olds from the following countries: Lithuania, Hungary, Slovakia and Poland. The purpose of our project was spreading tolerance, social equity and consciousness of the racial and religious diversity. Young people, through creative activities, were encouraged to realise that “different” does not mean “worse”. By using methods of informal teaching (games, discussion, workshop) we wanted to ensure that the knowledge gained during the project results in lasting tolerance towards other people. Young people need understanding of the racist and xenophobic issues – our project allows them to achieve this goal. We presume that realization of the project will not only influence the attitude of the youth towards others but will also allow them to use this cooperation in the international scene. Through the acquired skills, knowledge and new contacts, the young become be more tolerant, kind and responsible for their actions. They were gained experience in working in a multinational environment, acquire new competence (languages, among others), and the acquired interpersonal skills will make it easier for them to find themselves in the international environment.
