Center for Democracy and Human Rights – CEDEM, in cooperation with partners – Institute for European Affairs (Serbia), From the Beginning (Kosovo), Aarhus Center (Albania) is implementing the project Youth can change the future to respond to problems and challenges in intercultural dialogue and regional cooperation. The project will directly involve 20 representatives of the Student Parliaments from Montenegro, Serbia, Albania and Kosovo.
The overall goal is to strengthen and promote intercultural dialogue by raising awareness of the cultural and linguistic diversity of young people, which would prevent negative attitudes towards people from other countries.
The purpose of the project is to create an environment that will contribute to mutual understanding and cooperation of young people by building strong and lasting friendships and relationships with individuals from different ethnic groups in the Western Balkans.
The main activity of the project is a 20-day exchange (5 days in each country) with a focus on learning the basics of both languages, workshops on topics relevant to intercultural dialogue, but also getting to know the region through visits to public institutions and museums.
The project was supported by the Regional Office for Youth Cooperation – RYCO, within the first call for project proposals.
