The young people through some debates, role plays, creative workshops will elaborate a Manifesto with some sentences and suggestions on the topic.

The group of young partcipant will have other chances to integrate with the local community both during the preparation phase and both during the youth exchange by realizing some video interviews to collect ieas and views on the project topic from other peer age living in their country and from any other relevant testimonial.
