Start date: Sep 16, 2016, End date: Jan 15, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

"Open minds for brighter future" is a 7-day youth exchange rising awareness about increased propaganda in media these days. ‘What is propaganda?’, ‘why people tend to believe it?’, ‘why it is disseminated?’ – all these questions will be clarified by promoting tolerance, social equity and consciousness of the racial and religious diversity towards EU citizens and refugees, as well. The project will be coordinated by informal group „Aqua vitae“ supported by VšĮ Inceptus in collaboration with 4 different partners coming from Turkey, Slovakia, Ukraine and Austria. Youth exchange will gather 34 young people willing to take an initiative in the period of 21-27th of October 2016 in Vievis, Lithuania. Main objectives are to encourage participants to comprehend what is propaganda and promote human rights refering to nowadays refugees situation. To achieve this we will aim to provide a learning platform for cooperation of 4 partners sharing same goals, to propose and create new methods in order to support intercultural learning and European citizenship through active participation. This youth exchange will give a knowledge to participants how to identify propoganda, not only as a matter of danger, but as a sign to stand for their rights and beliefs.Participants will raise their awareness about propaganda and social exclusion by taking part in activities, workshops, work in pairs, group works and simulations during the project. Furthermore, intercultural dialogue and active citizenship will be also promoted with workshops and activities. Outcomes from the project are aimed to be disseminated in the local communities of the participants and on international level.
