Partner organisations from Romania, Lithuania, Denmark, Cyprus and Estonia gathered together in Bucharest to get to know each other better and to plan the project that will last for two years and is funded by Erasmus+ programme.
MultiNATIONS project aims to extend and develop the competences and skills of youth workers, trainers and educators, who work in the field of non-formal and informal education and training, providing innovative and creative tools to support them in the long-run in promoting cultural diversity and intercultural equality along with enhancing of European fundamental values such as, acceptance, solidarity and respect. Cultural diversity is the most common heritage of humanity and should be recognised for the benefit of present and future generations. This diversity is embodied in the uniqueness and plurality of the groups and societies’ identities making up humankind. The project’s innovation and added value lie in the fact that one of the most important ingredients for creativity is diversity; thus, innovative ideas are implemented by creativity developing new initiatives on diversity management and mediation in favour of youth workers. The main project’s challenge is to motivate and influence youth workers to deal with cultural diversity’s support. Therefore, under the MultiNATIONS project, a Self-test tool will be created for youth to evaluate and determine their level of knowledge and skills on cultural diversity mediation, by using critical thinking and previous experience. This will be done via the following outcomes:
– Map of cultural diversity;
– Moving Stories – digital storytelling about multiculturalism;
– Self-test tool of appropriateness as a Cultural Mediator.
