“Cultural Heritage in YOUth” is a project which will bring together more than 40 participants from 7 countries: Greece, Romania, Lithuania, Italy, Spain, Poland and Cyprus. The youth exchange “Cultural Heritage in YOUth” will address the topics of social inclusion and anti- discrimination as well as entrepreneurship and fight of unemployment through the Cultural Heritage. This being the main theme of our project reflects the needs of multiple European societies since all of them, due to different reasons, face social exclusion and unemployment. It will aim to develop among participants active expression of civic participation which will strengthen common European values such as solidarity, openness, understanding and liberty for combating poverty and marginalization through and in volunteering.
Through using non formal learning methods such as workshops, discussions, role plays, campaigns, simulation games and forum theatre it will provide to participants the competencies, skills and knowledge about poverty, marginalization, sustainable peace, human rights, anti discrimination and social cohesion in order for them to take actions as multipliers for greater social and community involvement in the framework of Erasmus+ Programme.
