THE MAIN OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT:

  • To help young people from Armenian, Turkey, France and Germany to recognize each other’s history, cultures, traditions, and find shared values as well as differences between them, as a basis for understanding, friendship and acceptance; through giving
    them the chance to work, and live together and to create common experiences.
  • To develop the media and social networking skills of young people and to raise their awareness on the alternative media tools for self-expression by means of providing them fundamental skills on blogging, photography storytelling and social media. These competences are essential for the formation of active citizens and political participation as well as a critical approach towards the world.
