Youth exchange with motto "MORE ATTENTION, PLEASE!" - THE THIRD STEP BEYOND DISABILITY is project about social inclusion, participation and equal opportunities. It will gather 48 young people with fewer opportunities, autism, cerebral palsy, Daun syndrom and dystrophy, but also young people without disability facing with different social, economical and geographical problems, from Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia and Greece.Venue of 8-days youth exchange will be in Sremski Karlovci (Serbia).Main aim of this project is to encourage participation and social inclusion of young people through nonformal creative workshops and various approaches in youth work. Participants will have chance to work and spend time together, to learn about each others cultures, to share and to break down personal and cultural barriers. With this project we want to enable the young people with disability to feel positive benefits of participation and inclusion and to feel able to participate more confidently in their society, to increase mobility of young people and to develop young people's citizenship and mutual understanding. Also we would like to create deeper understanding of youngsters with disability among their peers and to build their trust regarding playing an active role in the society. The non-disabled young people will become less judgmental of disability.In addition, the project activities are also aimed at assisting young people's achievement of financial independence and economic well-being. They should provide youth with practical ideas for starting their own businesses and getting self-employed.
