ABOUT THE PROJECT
The European debate on diversity and national identity is currently marked by major tensions. Particularly under closed fire, there has been multiculturalism that, from concept to fashion, has become a banned idea.
The critique of multiculturalism thus jumped to the public agenda as if it were also the cause of new international terrorism or ethnic-cultural tensions in Europe. In this criticism, the argument stands out that some societies are excessively tolerant and permissive in accepting within themselves the cultural and religious difference, even leaving out radicalisms hostile to it.
Through several and creative activities, using a pedagogic methodology, we intend to create a collective effort aiming an Europe more Multicultural and Diverse, instead of more Radical, among our young participants as their communities. Work that we are going to do will have an European perspective, where everyone will be involved, sharing Culture, Tradition and Ideals.
