Young people from Euro-Mediterranean region have received knowledge and practice on intercultural citizenship education that supports participants to exercise their rights and responsibilities in society, enhance their feeling of belonging to the community, local and global, as well as sensitizing them to understand and appreciate the normality of different worldviews, customs and ways of life among human beings.

Through the three creative meetings the participants have received new ideas and tools on how to use creativity in addressing societal issues and have participated in developing them further. The methodology has been comprised together into a concrete form as a toolkit and also uploaded o the electronic web-resource that can be used as an education tool by participant organisations, but also schools, youth centers etc.

Results sustainable outputs in the form of a creative intercultural education toolkit and web-resource have been developed and promoted that provide means for developing communication and understanding across Euro-Mediterranean regions. Now is the time where increased Euro-Mediterranean cooperation is extremely fruitful to both sides assisting the forging of a common ground hopefully built on common values and shared vision of the future. Young people from both regions are the ones who have the resourcefulness and drive for innovation that can make this happen in a truly sustainable manner. That’s why we feel that a project focusing on young people with its outcomes designed and created by young people of Euro-Mediterranean area with the intended purpose of motivating young people to take charge on Euro-Mediterranean issues is where keys to a better future for all of us are hidden.
