Welcome to Trip 2 Tolerance website!

european-unionThe project aims at promoting the values of democracy, inter-cultural understanding and solidarity among the youth and youth workers across the Mediterranean and in Belgium as the policy-making center of the EU.

During the recent years the economic and social crises that have stroked the area, have made clear that the role of the youth needs to be upgraded in these societies.

This degraded role, has been combined, or even worse has created a youth attitude suspicious towards the democratic institutions and even worse towards other nations of the region.

With the rise of fundamentalism in all its forms, this project is aiming at promoting the real-life experience, the knowledge and the values necessary to fight this trend and to establish cooperation across the region.

As Democritus stated over 2000 years ago “The wise man belongs to all countries, for the home of a great soul is the whole world”, and with this in mind we wish to instill the wisdom of cultural solidarity to the younger generations of the region, by affecting youth workers, thus expanding the possible impact.

The project is in line with the Erasmus+ KA1 Mobility for youth and youth workers goals, since it promotes the values upon which the EU has been built, it offers a great possibility for networking among the youth and the youth workers for future consortiums under the Erasmus+ and some of its key activities, such as the simulation game and the comic creation, are based on the exchange of good practices.
