ERASMUS+ YOUTH EXCHANGE: " Villagers are Masters"

ABOUT THE PROJECT: There a numerous challenges that European societies are facing. One of the sensitive problems that is widely seen across the EU  is social exclusion of villagers in urban areas. This results in young people from villages starting studies in universities and moving to cities facing discrimination, negative stereotypes and, hence, less opportunities.



In order to reach the key aim of the project , the following OBJECTIVES have
been set:
1) to raise youth's awareness of social exclusion that people from the villages are facing in
areas, as well as to provide them with specific tools and support to fight that;
2) to identify the most common stereotypes towards people whose place of origin is
countryside, and
find ways to tackle that;
3) to spread tolerance, strengthen equality and combat marginalisation;
4) to increase cooperation between village and city youth in order to create opportunities for
joint work and social initiatives.
