A pack of methods will be given to the participants at the end of the training so that they can use it at their return. Tools will be taught and, on the basis of their already existing projects in their sending organizations, participants will be also invited to share good practices, to exchange useful information, work intensively in order to improve their training skills with youths in regards to the subject of this training course and organize workshops in their respective countries. The project also aims at equipping participants with a sense of initiative and an active european citizenship feeling, to encourage involvement to be transferred later to the target groups with which the participants work on a daily basis, within their local communities in order to achieve multiplying effect. The local communities will benefit from the added value of this training and get involved in initiatives and actions on the topic which the participants will be better able to organize after their participation at this training.Therefore, on a long term basis the project will create a European network to promote mobility and free movement. It will allow the partners organisation to improve their skills in the frame of promoting their own Erasmus + actions and for the participants to emancipate themselves more and more as young Europeans, active and comittted citizen for an intercultural and tolerant Europe.
