"Podobieństwo Różnic" (ang. "Similar Differences")
Start date: 01 May 2015, End date: 31 Oct 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The ?Similar Differences? project was focused on joining two groups of young people from different cultural backgrounds ? Poland and the Netherlands. The aim was to get to know each other, exchange experiences and develop a new, attractive form, of meetings between European youth through cultural projects. The main goal of the exchange project was to help integration of youth from different cultural backgrounds. There were 10 participants from the Netherlands and 12 participants from Poland aged 13-30 years. These participants were interested in international affairs, social activities, and multicultural society. During their 14 day stay at the ?hOlendry? foundation the participants had meetings to promote integration, games and assignments, film- and photography workshops, brainstorm sessions about how to present each country, shooting a documentary, cooking workshops about traditional recipes etc. The project ended with a Final Gala titled ?Similar Differences? with the participation of the local community. The project was implemented through the adoption of a common scheme and plan of activities, discussion and the collection of the views of participants on the status of the tasks. At the end, all participants have completed questionnaires about the goals of the project, achieved skills and benefits. Expected results were the integration of different cultures, getting acquainted with the customs people living in the Netherlands and Poland, decreasing stereotypes, increasing the area and frequency of youth exchanges, helping young people to appreciate the benefits of a different cultures and a motivation to deepen the knowledge of foreign languages, creating life-long friendships.
