About the Project

 

Through this project we wanted to deepen our experiences and relationships with those who are different from us, who have a different set of values than ours, by virtue of nationality, cultural background, ethnicity, faith, education, etc. A key factor in a “process” of cultural exchange is that it requires us to meet, confront, explore, appreciate, and ultimately respect DIFFERENCE.

Purpose: Purpose: Reducing intolerance and discrimination among young people.
Objectives:
1. Understanding cultural, national and social differences.
