Briefly about the youth exchange
The youth exchange ‘’Open Mind Knows No Borders’’ brings 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 come from the cities which refugees pass through on their way to Western Europe and which are affected by the refugee crisis.
During five full working days during youth exchange, the participants will use various methods of non-formal learning to share knowledge and experience in a friendly atmosphere full of understanding, friendship and solidarity.
Young people are full of ideas and initiatives, they initiate social changes, and this youth exchange would be a great opportunity for their potential not only to be expressed but also used for creating new ideas related to mutual overcoming of the current migration problems, within possibilities of the youth actions. After the exchange, they will apply what they have learnt during exchange by implementing activities in their schools and local communities.
Our joint efforts to help migrants will be making of multilingual pocket dictionary of basic vocabulary that will make communication easier when passing through these four countries or during stay in them.
