Project Description:
There is much discrimination in Europe and most of it is based on ignorance and fear of the unknown. Stereotypes are created and this project will allow young people from different countries to learn about each other in order to overcome these common problems. The main objective of the project is to overcome different forms of discrimination through methods of giving the opportunity to young people to learn from each other and to develop friendships.

In order for the EU to be more united and united in diversity, we need to learn about each country, its people, its customs and its traditions and its history. When we know and understand our neighbours and they understand us, we build respect and only then can we start building a united Europe. This project will focus on young people getting to know each other so that they can be the future generations that bring Europe closer together, making it a unified Europe and breaking any borders that are created from ignorance.

The greatest identifier of any country is its culture, and this will be the biggest focus of the project, learning about our own cultures, the roots of our cultures and then being able to share our culture with others. Creating a unified European culture would be counterproductive, as we are all unique, but promoting the diversity of each individual culture and sharing it so that we can embrace the best elements of each culture, and at the same time allow us to respect the differences and diversity of the different countries we will allow our youth to be the building blocks of a closer more unified Europe.

The main objective of the project is to overcome different forms of discrimination through methods of giving the opportunity to young people to learn from each other and to develop friendships. Also exchanging good practices between each other to allow for a stronger approach to combating discrimination and xenophobia in youth. We will cover various fields of discrimination and marginalisation that youth experience today, including gender equality, bullying, various forms of discrimination and we will also review EU policy regarding equality and discrimination.

We will look at active citizenship and how we shape the world we live it, we will look at citizenship and the EU democratic system from the perspective of human rights and how these laws and rights are designed to prevent discrimination and how we can make the difference to stop discrimination starting from home.

Testimonials

Cultural diversity , open minded people with great desire to share their opinions, understanding through empathy, exercise, and overall a group that became unitary working together with joy. "Where do I belong" treated the issue of immigration from a rational and also emotional point of view. The action took place in Predeal, Romania and was coordinated by One Terrene International. The trainers information and means of communication was of great value and the topics managed to attract everyone`s attention and participation. I recommend this unique experience to anyone in search of improving their knowledge on European issues, developing their communication skills, understanding different cultures and establishing human connections.
