The main idea of this Youth exchange ‘Active youth for Europe’ was brought by a group of young people who had an opportunity to interact and share experience in a diverse, international environment, and expressed their interest to create an opportunity for other young people to gain knowledge and understanding of other cultures, to get an understanding of challenges that youth face in their countries, to establish youth European network with other youngsters as well as to create possibility to explore and critically reflect on different topics concerning youth in Europe and to gain the confidence to actively take part in the European citizenship in the future.
