This publication was created by Education Development Center „Planet“ within Erasmus + project „Open mind knows no borders“.
Center „Planet“ is an association for development of education and promotion of science, which is done through the activation of children and the young through programmes and projects which develop creativity, critical thinking, scientific conscience, ecological conscience, social skills and responsibility.
The project „Open mind knows no borders“ brought together 40 young people, high school students, from four neighbouring countries (Macedonia, Serbia, Hungary and Croatia) with different ethnic, national, religious, historical, cultural backgrounds to the city of Sombor (Vojvodina, Serbia) united to learn about each other and create an atmosphere of peace, non-violence, respect of human rights in which they can find what connects them despite their differences. They came from the cities which refugees pass through on their way to Western Europe and which are affected by the refugee crisis. Youth exchange was place where they had opportunity to learn about each other and develop values such as cultural diversity acceptance, solidarity, empathy, friendship, humaneness, after which our joint efforts was to help migrants by making multilingual pocket dictionary of basic vocabulary that will make communication easier when passing through these four countries or during stay in them.
