The project will involve 8 organisations from: Portugal, France, Italy, Estonia, Bulgaria, Romania, Slovenia and Spain. Each group will be composed by 5 youngsters (between 18 to 25 years old) and 1 leader. The Portuguese group will have 2 leaders. In total there will be 49 participants in the youth exchange that will take place between 24th August and 4th September 2015. The young people will have the chance to know the local community and to have contact with the Portuguese culture and habits and share at the same time their own culture with the other members of the group. It's also proposed a little portuguese course. In the end of the youth exchange we hope that the young people become more aware of their role in the society and about the importance of Intercultural Dialogue to reach one more inclusive Europe. We also hope that this can be the beginning of several individual and group projects in each participant home town.
