- To help the participants in their personal, social and professional development that lead to better self-esteem when they will be confronted to new experiences, attitudes and behaviors.


With participating in this project the 45 participants will be more tolerant and aware of cultural diversity in Europe. There will be several methodological segments of the youth exchange that each contribute to the general aims and objectives and in each segment the participants will be actively involved. The main theme of the project is promoting volunteering for response to environmental challenges, including disaster prevention, preparedness and recovery in the frame of a whole city upgrade and the final environmental Festival "SAFE TOWN". Our aim is to give the participants a chance to exchange their knowledge and use their imagination to make something extra ordinary. We want to motivate them to think outside the box and make something creative and unique. We have the staff, the support, the tools and the frame to see that happening.
