Learner centered non-formal techniques will be applied begining with icebreakers and name learning activities on the initial sessions of the project till the dissemination process. Thus the participants will be focused and will actively participate to the activities. Moreover we will arrange multi-cultural groups and organize workshops, indoor-outdoor activities, question-answer sessions, presentations etc. To raise intercultural awareness and show each participants culture we will organize cultural promotional events every evening. Results: At the end of the project with the theme of violence we prepared we aim to raise awareness in participants and direct or indirect benefactors of the project. There will be a decrase in number of news about violance that we watch everday as if we were watching a horror movie. Applying a project about violence especially in a relatively small city like Kastamonu will create a big impact. The e-booklet that we will prepare as an outcome of the project will be sent to related institutions and NGOs to encourage them to take some steps to prevent violance. Participant yougnsters will learn the aspects of Eurpeanism and active citizenship and they will overcome their prejudice. Participants will improve personally and socially and they will be active citizens in society. The participants will become willing to take part in further project activities in different areas and they will help more people to benefit from EU opportunities.
