Objectives of project
Sharing realities in different European countries when it comes to challenges related to dealing with cultural diversity – the focus on how it affects young people and their needs Exploring main theories and concepts related to inter-cultural learning and dialogue competence –culture, identity, dialogue, diversity, inclusion-exclusion, mechanisms of stereotyping, prejudices and discrimination, etc.
• Becoming more aware about their own identity, culture, stereotypes and prejudiced behaviour patterns and realize that intercultural learning and dialogue is a life-long learning process

people – by transversally including giving and receiving in their daily youth work or through specially design NFL activities
The Training will take place near Antalya, a place where many different cultures and civilisation live in harmony together. Furthermore, we wish for them to have the opportunity to get to know each other also outside the workshop. We therefore plan for the participants to be accommodated in the local guesthouse, which will provide them with a nice, homely and social atmosphere.
The youth of the same sex will stay in the same quadruple bedroom in the hostel (unless they have any complaints about it).
Food is the number one issue at a workshop. This issue has to be taken into consideration as it is a health issue and hungry participants cannot be expected to actively participate. We will discuss this with the partners so we can possibly do compromises on meal times and special arrangements if needed. If possible, healthy snacks should be available for the participants at all times.
The group leader should in advance inform the participants about the differences in food cultures, in case they differ from the own. We’ll also provide vegan & vegetarian food. First of all we will ask the participants if they have any diets, food allergies or food regulations regarding culture or religion and ensure that everyone get food that they can eat. Regional specialties are good from a cultural perspective, but should also be taken into considerations that young people might be sceptical and eat less of food they don´t know.
All participants should have travel insurance and are asked to get a European health card.
After sending their tickets and boarding cards, partner organisation will receive the reimbursement of their travel costs.
