The idea of the project origins from a precise need: involve partners from UE and Extra-UE that works in the youth field to deal with issues of active citizenship, prevention of exclusion, interculturalità and peace.

Gathering in the project partners from so different realities shows the clear will to establish a common dialogue based on tollerance and building relationships between youth, in order to promote peace and International cooperation. All the countries involved are facing economic, employment crisis and conflicts based on ethnic and religious issues. In this problematic frame-work, that produces various kind of social exclusion (conflicts, suicides, alienation) how can the Youth workers and youth participants in this project ouline inclusive solutions and effective answers? Which instruments do the youth need to consider themselfes as a active subject in the set up local and european policy?
How could cultural differences became essential to build a real International cooperation? Within the project “CULTURAL MAKERS» we would like to establish a setting and a opportunity of debate and discussion between youth and youth workers to develop common and incisive answers to these questions.
