Workshops & Activities of the project

The project’s main aim was to address cultural diversity and minorities. Through this project, participants had the opportunity to discuss, reflect and raise awareness about cultural diversity and also had the opportunity to develop their creativity. In this way, the participants felt empowered, with initiative and with the opportunity to create and participate in society. During the week, they worked with a non-formal methodology, with dynamics, debates, they worked in small groups, had creative presentations, theatre and expression exercises as well as artistic creations. 

In summary, all participants worked together and reflected on the topic of cultural diversity, ethnic minorities and minority languages. All team members developed different skills and competencies while acquiring new knowledge. They were able to develop skills such as sense of initiative, creativity, artistic expression, teamwork, the ability to energize, practice languages, reflection and critical thinking… and definitely lots of certain skills such as digital, entrepreneurial, cultural and civic expression.
