WHAT IS AN INTER-CULTURAL EXCHANGE?
Cultural exchange projects promote youth mobility and intercultural learning through socio-cultural activities between groups of young people from different countries.
Meeting other cultures and realities, young people can learn from each other. They can discover similarities and differences between their cultures and their personal formations, as well as acquiring notions and useful information to enrich their cultural background.
This type of experience serves to eliminate negative prejudices and stereotypes that often occur towards other cultures and provide dialogue and open confrontation between all participants as a basic tool.
In an exchange initiative, groups of young people from different contexts have the opportunity to meet, discuss different topics, as well as to acquire knowledge about their respective countries.
Youth cultural exchanges offer groups of young people (usually aged between 13 and 30) the opportunity to plan their exchange on the basis of a theme of common interest.
