Multilateral Youth Exchange
“ Common Values for Common Actions”
Krusevo, Macedonia
September, 01-09, 2012



The idea “Common Values for Common Actions” arose from the success of the three previous youth exchanges “Meting of Cultures-2009”, “Meeting of Cultures-Meeting of Values 2010” and “Diversity our Value-2011”. The achieved results and outcomes invited the young people towards a continuation and further development of this vision.

The 8 days activity, hosted by Youth Alliance Krusevo, tooked place in Krusevo, FYR Macedonia from 1
st to 9th September and gathered 58 young people coming from 10 countries: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Greece, Kosovo, Italy, Romania, Serbia, Turkey and FYR Macedonia.
The main aim of this youth exchange is promotion of EU values and values of youth participation as added values to actual multicultural societies in EU and SEE.

In a wider sense this initiative is to contribute to: the broadening of the cultural awareness, intercultural exchange by discussing different experiences and practices related to youth employment and active participation, and development of future actions in the framework of the YIA programme.

The envisaged non formal learning methods (presentations, thematic workshops, outdoor activities, simulations, games, exercises and role plays) will highlight the project’s strong dimension for exploring common values for common actions. The design of the activity program will encompass participants’ interest and needs through the various subtopics of Cultural diversity and Young people in multicultural society, combining with topics of Intercultural competencies for Youth employment and Youth Participation.

We strongly believe that “Common Values for Common Actions” will raise the awareness of the certainty that the more we know about each other and our neighbors, the greater chance we have of understanding and appreciating the differences between us and putting them in function for joint actions.
