Project description:

The aim of the project is primarily on the one hand, the acquisition of key competences by volunteers, including the ability to associate and work in an international environment, on the other hand to produce in the local community a positive attitude towards cultural diversity and integration of migrants. These objectives will be achieved through the following actions:

  • Organization of integration events and cultural events for the local community, including migrants. Volunteers will be responsible for the organization of events, promoting the culture of individual countries and also European values such as tolerance, human rights and civil society.
  • Conducting foreign language lessons, both for migrants and for the local community, in order to counteract social and cultural marginalization of migrants.
  • Implementation of the volunteers own projects, initiatives and ideas. These activities are aimed at the acquisition of key competences by volunteers, such as:
    - The ability to associate and work with people from different backgrounds, cultures and countries, a positive attitude toward cultural diversity.
    - Encourage creativity, the use of art and entertainment in integrating intercultural community
    - Ability to manage projects
    - The ability to recasting ideas into action
This will be achieved through non-formal learning.
