My project idea
The aim is to educate and to gather Bosnian youth people who live in the same communities and have too much diversities which is preventing them to cooperate, to be friends and to have better mutual understandings.
This will be a project run by volunteers which focus will be on gathering youth with differences (religious, ethnic and political) sharing different opinions, breaking the prejudices and making new friendships, trough the non-formal education techniques and collaborative projects.
The most important needs are the following:
– raising awareness that prejudices are the problem which is blocking Bosnian and Herzegovina road to the any integrations.
– opportunities to interact with young people from diverse cultural and ethnical backgrounds;
– wider range of accessible and enjoyable youth activities that would encourage social participation.
– making new friendships, and promoting social dialogue.
