The European Union, an organization formed of different societies and cultures, and from the very beginning a cultural contract with itself. The culture of Europe, spreading rapidly among young people, taking hold in daily life, causes societies to push their own culture to background. What we expect from Young Europeans is that while forming a common European culture, their own cultural facts, stemming from the heart of life, a link to their past, and on the verge of disappearing be saved.
Meeting different countries, cultures and ways of thinking, Young Europeans will expand their horizons. Through this project Young Europeans, who are expected to play an important role in the future developing intercultural dialogue, should do what they can to share cultural facts, and develop policies and strategies for protecting cultural facts. Thus, people involved in this project will be positively affected by experiencing the cultural differences. Participants will grow up as individuals sensitive towards their families and society; who can solve problems and create solutions; who improve their skills in cooperating with official, civil, and social institutions.
The other aim of the project is to improve Young Europeans’ social, cultural and organizational potential and skills. In this way, Young Europeans successfully completing the project will be able to adapt to new situations and environments.
Among cultural diversity, to able to live in peace; Young Europeans will learn to respect personal differences and tolerate different ideas, concepts and cultural facts not just theoretically but practically as well.
