Leading point forimplementation of the project was the idea to discuss and developbetween the European organizations working with youth, how toapproach through their work and projects the field of promotion ofIntercultural Dialogue (ICD) and intercultural learning (ICL). We haveidentified the need to discuss on the event the issues of discrimination,xenophobia, stereotypes and prejudices, conflict management andnon-violent communication, discrimination in order to match togetherthe big picture of intercultural dialogue and the importance that ithaves in the process of building healthy intercultural societies.We consider that much is done on the field of strengthening andpromotion of intercultural dialogue on European level, but there is stillnecessity to proceed working on its promotion and in future, identifyingICD as a main tool to establish understanding and acceptance of thediversities between the European citizens and especially between theyoung people.In this manner during the event we have worked on the fragments of ICDin particular and on ICD and ICL in general. 3
  5. 5. INTRODUCTIONThrough 4 working days on intensive work in highly interculturalenvironment, using participator y non-formal educationmethodologies we succeed to open the theme of interculturaldialogue and to establish international youth partnership platform thatupon this project will build many other projects and initiatives throughwhich we will in debt work out intercultural dialogue and set newstandards on its promotion on local, national and European level.The project partners include YouNet (Italy), Edukativni CentarKrusevac(Serbia), Maison de lEurope de Caen Basse-Normandie(France), Associacion OPENDOORS (Spain), Sasdi Kisteregi IfjusagiPrgogramszervezo Kerekasztal Egyesulet (Hungary), European YouthCenter Breclav (Czech Republic), Alternativi International (Bulgaria)and Omerli Initiative and Development Association (Turkey). Wewould like to take this opportunity to thank our project partners and allthe young people that participated in the activities of this project fortheir dedication and their enthusiasm in achieving our objectives. We look forward to future cooperation throughjoint projects and activities that will address promotion of interculturaldialogue and mutual understanding. 4
  6. 6. THE PROJECTMain aim of the project is to raise the capacities of the youth NGOs fromEurope to promote inter-cultural dialogue and mutual understandingbetween young people.Objectives of the project are:- To promote inter-cultural youth work as a tool that fosters inter-cultural dialog;- To educate participants to create future projects that will promoteinter-cultural dialogue and mutual understanding in theircommunities and on European level;- To promote the concept of inter-cultural learning and values inEurope;- To promote CoE white paper on Inter-cultural dialog and createfollow-up of the event.During the entire event participants have been working on thefollowing themes:1.Concept of inter-cultural dialog – following the concept of ICDwe wanted to share visions of the world, to understand and learnfrom the participants and from their different points of view andunderstanding. It was important to set the ICD as a basic pillar uponwhich we can identify similarities and differences between differentcultural traditions and perceptions. By identifying differences to learnhow to respect them and accept them.By explaining this we aimed to bridge the divide between those whoperceive diversity as a threat and those who view it as anenrichment, to share best practices particularly in the areas ofintercultural dialogue, the democratic management of socialdiversity and the promotion of social cohesion and to discuss todevelop jointly new projects in future. 5
  7. 7. THE PROJECT2. Multiculturalism and interculturalism – the idea was to presentthese two ideologies and the tendencies they bring within. Byseparating and planning these to concepts, participants will learn thebasis of coherent socieities and tolerance towards people fromdifferent backgrounds. Whats most important the idea was to promoteliving together; in one big circle instead in gethos and circles thatrepresent production of stereotypes, prejudices and discrimination. Theidea was to present these two ideologies and the tendencies they bringwithin. By separating and planning these to concepts, participants willlearn the base of coherent society and tolerance towards people fromdifferent backgrounds. Whats most important the idea was to promoteliving together, in one big circle instead in ghettoes and circles thatinfluence on production of stereotypes, prejudices and discrimination.3. Inter-religious and inter-cultural dialog in youth work - focused onthe problems that young people across Europe face in relation tocultural and religious diversity. The participants exchanged goodpractice and agreed the importance ICD and ICL have in every society,and especially in those where at least two religions are present. Lack ofinterreligious dialogue often is the entrance door for conflicts, tensionand misunderstanding in the societies and between people. It leads tocreation of even bigger stereotypes and may lead to raise ofnationalism which is solid ground for creation of non-secure livingsurroundings. By discussing on these issues , participants created criticalthinking on the topics. Went in debt by analyzing the roots of thesephenomena and proposed possible solutions on these sensible topics. 6
  8. 8. THE PROJECT4. Conflict management - By explaining the concept of ICD we havealso tend to achieve a consensus that disputes should not be resolvedby violence. Participants discussed on how to identify and handleconflict practice in a sensible, fair, and efficient manner and what kindof skills should they have in order to work on the issue with bigger qualityand devotion. Non-violent communication was put on the table as oneof the most effective and best tools to fight against conflictmanagement. We defined that we still dont know much on thismethod, and the need to work on it in debt was underlined. Alsoparticipants addressed the need of mediation as another tool whichcan be applied in the process of conflict management.5. Human rights – Universality of the concept of human rights and thereality and the way they are applied and treated. HR helped theparticipants to discuss and explain the context of mutual respect,tolerance and acceptance. Definition of human rights, theirinterpretation, Implementation was defined as a key point upon whichstabile society can be build, where respect, intercultural dialogue andsymbiosis of diversity are overwhelming. Respect of human right reflectsthe level of progress of every society. Healthy societies are those thatprovide conditions for respect of at least basic human rights. Eventhough it was defined that even in the advanced developed societies,the need of respect in real life of the human rights flows in the air. It wasespecially underlined the need to respect the rights of the immigrants,asylum seekers and minorities on European level in general, cause stillmisunderstandings happen throughout Europe. 7
  9. 9. THE PROJECT6. Discrimination and anti-discrimination – two diagonally differentconcepts of promotion of respect and tolerance toward thediversities. To treat one particular group of people less favorably thanothers because of their race, color, nationality, or ethnic or nationalorigin Wide spread, present in various forms and situations, alwaysimportant and potentially dangerous., discrimination is identifies as avivid issue, especially between the young people. It was defined thatdiscrimination is almost always result of lack of knowledge andinformation for the people we discriminate. Very often stereotypes,prejudices are developing processes of discrimination.7. Cultural diversity - the quality of diverse or different cultures, asopposed to monoculture, as in the global monoculture, or ahomogenization of cultures, akin to cultural decay was discussed.Respect to the other cultures and the possibility to learn and share ourown, is the main contribution towards the development of ICD ingeneral. The idea of Europe itself is an unified platform where everyculture, nationality, tradition has equal and significant place with allothers, and is respected by all the others.Working on the above mentioned themes, helped the young peopleon the event, to work piece by piece and catch the big picture ofintercultural dialogue. 8
  10. 10. PREPARATION PHASEBefore the main event, the project team (representatives from partnerorganization from Macedonia, Hungary, Serbia and Italy) conductedpreparation phase. This process is very significant and importantcause it gives the main directions how the main event should beplanned and implemented and how the evaluation and final phaseshould be carried out.At the beginning we did online gathering where we discussed thegeneral responsibility of the project and the aim we want to achieve.Second step was to organize preparatory meeting the project team.The meeting was held in Ohrid, Macedonia in hotel “Klimetica” in theperiod of 27-29 July 2011. During the meeting we have put on thetable and agreed all the details and technicalities. We have definedthe final working agenda, the methodology of work, materials andpublications as resources. In order to spread the co-managementand ownership of the event, each of project team organizations tookresponsibility to prepare, organize and facilitate sessions on the mainevent, which proved to be motivating for the participants on the mainevent.Taking in mind that the prep meeting was held at the same placeselected for venue of the event, the team had the chance to inspectthe accommodation and working facilities and conditions and makesure that the participants will feel comfortable, living and working inpleasant intercultural and safe environment. 9
  11. 11. PROGRAMME CONTENT DAY IOpening session of the event and the theme of intercultural dialoguewas the concept of intercultural dialogue and defining interculturaldialogue. It was underlined that there isnt definition carved in stoneabout what is ICD. That it represents vivid issue, mosaic of smallerfragments that build it. ICD was recognized as one of the main pillarsof healthy societies, where different people, different cultures,different traditions, angles of view live together, accepting thedifferences that are present.It was underlined that Europe presents this kind of platform, mixture ofso many differences and that it represents excellent classroom of howto promote ICD. Even though by analyzing the past, present andpossible future situations there are still much to be done on promotionof intercultural dialogue.The analysis of the situation on youth intercultural dialogue in Europeexposed that intercultural dialogue shows to be stabile in certain partsof Europe, but not as in one piece.There is still level of discrimination, prejudices and stereotypes,exclusion and conflicts that remind us to keep working on buildingyoung people concuss and mentality to accept the diversities.Especially were underlined as an example the situations of theimmigrants, asylum seekers and minorities in Europe, and thedifficulties they face on daily basis.Lack of information is about something different is the reason to createstereotypes, prejudices, discrimination and exclusion. This can lead toincreased level of nationalism and intolerance towards certain groupsof people and will result with unstable, closed, xenophobic societies.In this direction, challenges of promotion of intercultural diversity in thesocieties and promotion of intercultural dialogue remain. Initiatives,projects, discussions and lot of work is needed to continue buildtolerance and mutual life, respect and acceptance. 10
  12. 12. PROGRAMME CONTENT DAY IIInterreligious dialogue and intercultural dialogue in youth work inmulticultural environments shown to be one of the mostimportant topics for the participants. It is important to workintensively on promotion of Interreligious and interculturaldialogue in the multicultural environments. There are manyexamples of people of different backgrounds living in samecommunity but not mixing and contacting between each other,just because they are different one from another. In theseenvironments the level of exclusion is big. Stereotypes andprejudices are almost inevitable and contribute to even biggerisolation and lack of dialogue and communication. Its crucialto break these closed circles and provide conditions forcoexistence.Discrimination is still present on various basis. Situation of Romapeople was underlined as one of the examples, but as well thesituation of immigrants, minorities etc. All these groups enjoyfewer rights than the other people and are often treatedinadequate to what laws and international laws and rightspredict. 11
  13. 13. PROGRAMME CONTENT DAY IIThis leads to creation of conflicts, conflicts on different grounds. Lacksof policies for treatment of this issue are obstacle as well.Only with time and right approach and work, results are unavoidable.Same time young people, citizens, NGO sector and national andEuropean institutions are working on solution on these problems,through their daily and devoted work, that needs to be taken as anexample for all other key actors, institutions and citizens.The Council of Europe and European Youth Foundation are workingdevoted on the field of strengthening tolerance, mutual life andpromotion of intercultural dialogue in Europe. Their support in variousforms is more than valuable and important. Their politics,recommendations, directions and guidance are supporting theprocess of intercultural learning Europe wide and are developing theprocess of intercultural dialogue.These directions, recommendations, policies can be found in theirnumerous publications, guidebooks, manuals and documents.Seeing the importance of these documents and the benefits theybring, presentation was made on the T-kit for intercultural dialogueand on the White paper on intercultural dialogue as excellentresources that can be applied in the work of strengthening the ICD.In order to present the work and support that EYF and CoE provide tothese processes, as part of the working programme presentation ofthese institutions was made, by the representative of EYF on the event,Michele Bergdoll. 12
  14. 14. PROGRAMME CONTENT DAY IIIConflicts happen because of lack of trust, discrimination andintolerance. But also conflicts often happen because of the lack ofknowledge, methodology and work on how to prevent them.Non-violent communication is stated as one of the key factors forprevention of conflicts. This session was stated as a possible theme offuture project and initiative, because it brings great importance.During the third day it was inevitable to open the human right theme.This opened wide discussion between the participants. Main point wasthe non-equal approach toward human rights and the quarantinesand freedoms and obligations that they bring. The level ofdemocracy and intercultural dialogue in every society make thedifference in what extent the HR are respected.In the second part of the working day, participants had the opportunityto visit Ohrid, where working in groups, they made photographys onthe themes on HR, ICS and social inclusion. On the presentationafterwards through photos they transferred the importance of ICD anddiversity in every society. This creative workshop, from another angleunderlined the presence of the ICD and diversity and the necessitythey bring for mutual, tolerant life and coexistence and acceptance. 13
  15. 15. PROGRAMME CONTENT DAY IVUpon the previous working days, identification of current situation ofICD in the participant countries was made. We have recognized thefact that we all have the same issues of ICD, but just they are structuredand initiated in many different ways. This brings the need tocontinuously work and exchange knowledge and experience oninternational level. Still the tendency to promote ICD as one of thepillars remains priority in every neighborhood, community, society – inEurope.All this participants managed to transfer and present through musicalworkshop. They have transferred the message for non-discrimination,respect and diversity working in small groups and creating songs,which showed that many, many approaches can be used working onthe above mentioned issues.Final part of the last day was the evaluation phase. Participantsthrough questionnaires and spoken evaluation access the event, theproject, evaluated themselves and their learning moment andprovide realistic feedback on the event and the importance of theentire project.They recognized the importance to continue working on thesethemes and in future and put ideas of possible future projects that canbe applied.Before the official closing they received certificates of thanks by thehost organization and the project team as recognition of theirparticipation, devotion and learning process throughout the entireproject. 14
  16. 16. METHODOLOGY OF WORKMethodology was based on theoretical lectures and presentations,practical exercises and experimental learning and possibilities toreflect on the applicability of identified ideas. Education module wasfocused on highly participatory methods, brainstorming, groupdiscussions, small group work, feedback in debriefing sessions,energizers, Q&A where participants were permanently motivated andinvolved.Visual facilities were used to increase the learning results. In thismanner we have implemented photo workshop, where participantsthrough photography explained the concept of ICD, diversity andmutual understanding.Combination of plenary sessions with small group work was made.Plenary sessions were used to introduce the topics as well as forstructured discussions and presentation of the results from the smallgroup work. Working in small groups enabled “learn by doing”approach understanding of theoretical concepts. Exactly in thesegroups, participants were active the most. After the work groups,feedback were always made, reflecting the work done.The entire concept of the working methodology was developed bythe project team and aimed to respond towards the participantsexpectations, level of knowledge and experience.The activities supported group unity and trust among the participants;team work and inter-cultural cooperation; development ofparticipants communication and inter-personal skills. 15
  17. 17. INTERCULTURAL DIMENSIONThe project and the venue helped participants to share culture andcultural values, to develop critical thinking, to present their nationalcuisine, traditions and culture and to promote intercultural learningand dialogue in every aspect of the event. Whats most important isthat the participants gained competencies on how to promoteintercultural dialogue and mutual understanding between their peers,in their community, in their professional and personal work.The training course developed high sense of understanding, respectand cooperation between the young participants. It enabled thecreation of international new partnerships between the partnerorganizations and building of youth platform. The event promotedsocial inclusion of young people and volunteerism, Europeanawareness and citizenship and promotion of CoE values as pillars ofEuropean unity. The training course increased young peoples positiveawareness and acceptance of other cultures and celebrate diversity,set directions on how to prevent and combat prejudice, stereotypesand all attitudes leading to exclusion.

  20. 20. EVALUATIONThe evaluation strategy has been created by the project team. Mainaim of the evaluation is to measure the overall success of the projectand the impact it makes, to see in what extent did the participantsexpand their knowledge in the working themes, become aware of thepossibilities to work and promote intercultural dialogue, what is thelevel of motivation and enthusiasm to proceed working andeducating peers on ICD and ICL.In order to have reliable and measurable results we conductedseveral types of participatory evaluation in different stages of theevent.During the implementation of the main event, at the end of eachworking day, reflection groups were made. Using this methodology wewere following the energy and dynamic of the group, receiving theirfeedbacks upon the working programme we succeed to makemodifications according to their learning need and we evaluatedtheir learning moments. With the daily evaluations we also followedthe overall situation with the logistic and working and livingenvironment. What is most important, these daily evaluations helpedto provide qualitative, dynamic non-formal working atmosphere.At the last day of the event, the project team carried out finalevaluation. In order to receive as more as possible realistic feedbackwe conducted two types of evaluation, using questionnaires andspoken evaluation. In this process participants access all thesegments of the event: the working methodology and content, overallorganization of the event, the trainers and support staff and whatsmost important their learning moment. Participants made acomparison of their expectations before the event and their benefitsfrom the event.General grade, from the evaluation phase is that the event hit it goals.It enabled to put the participants in highly participatory non-formallearning process, with possibilities to learn and share. 19
  21. 21.

It was pointed out by the participants that moretime was needed to completely work out intercultural dialogue and itsconcept. Even though we had 4 intensive days of work, more time isneeded. We have all agreed that it is necessary to continue workingon the ICD in general and of the fragments of ICD in particular. Thispointed out the need of creation of more projects and initiativeswhere we will precede working on the themes.Host organization and the overall organization of the project aregraded as excellent, providing excellent living and working conditions.Work of trainers is evaluated as excellent and motivating for theparticipants to be actively involved in the working sessions.At the end the final evaluation of the project was carried out by theproject team and host organization.
