The project

Youth are the seeds of change. Youth Connections is a project co-funded by the European Community which aims at creating strong link between young refugees, asylum seekers and immigrants and EU Youth through creative work and cultural activities aimed at fostering social inclusion. EU Youth Report stated that young people should be able to grow up in inclusive and pluralistic communities, based on EU democratic values, the rule of law and fundamental rights Education, youth participation, interfaith and inter-cultural dialogue have a key role to play in preventing radicalisation by promoting common European values, fostering social inclusion, enhancing mutual understanding and tolerance (EU Commission, 2015). These are the values that Youth Connections will pursue.
