In the frame of the project we will organize an international youth exchange for people aged 16-18 years old from Czech Republic, Poland and Romania. The members of the groups are young people living in small towns or villages that do not normally have the opportunity to come into contact and meet people from other countries, as well as the possibility of international travels; which could increase the attitudes of xenophobia and dislike for otherness and the feeling of social apathy.The aim of the project is to increase the knowledge about Czech, Polish and Romanian cultures by organizing 8 days of culinary and music international meetings. The subjects of the exchange are daily life issues (cooking and music), so each participant can easily share their knowledge and experience.The working methods used during the meeting will be:- Workshops, presentations, cooking together, playing typical instruments with the partner countries, urban games and games in the forest.- The dissemination of the results of the project includes a city game in the city center of Kwidzyn with the food prepared by us, a presentation with the songs of the exchange and the presentation of the film about the exchange, handing leaflets, games and fun.After the exchange we want to organize presentations in schools, presentations for young people at Akwedukt Association and in the partner countries, a blog with the recipes of the countries participating in the exchange.The effects of the exchange are:1. An attitude of openness towards the other cultures, religions, beliefs. Increased awareness and desire for international travels, which will have its result in the future mobility of young people in Europe.2. The improvement of practical skills in planning, implementation and evaluation of a project, necessary in school and life. The youth will have also the chance to improve their language skills. In addition, they will get to learn new IT tools, ie. doodle, google +, dropbox, PPT presentations and Prezi, creating movies in media player or Animoto. These are the skills needed in particular on the current labor market or during higher education.
