Conflict, discrimination, racism and xenophobia are realities that culturally diverse societies have to deal with.
Youth workers often work with young people in culturally diverse communities that provoke challenges in intercultural understanding and inclusion of members of society with different backgrounds, for example, in terms of culture, language, ethnical backgrounds and religion.
The challenge facing youth workers working with young people from different cultural backgrounds is to promote and practice positive intercultural work and for young people to value this.
• To explore cultural diversity and identify the opportunities and challenges it presents.
• To raise awareness and understanding about Intercultural work.
• To share and discover different intercultural work practice in the youth sector.
• To generate creative strategies of how and what youth workers in community contexts can do to promote best practices in intercultural work within the youth sector at a local and European level
• To raise awareness on Youth in Action as a program tool to improve intercultural work in the youth sector
