The concept of diversity is in the foundations of European heritage and identity, encompassing acceptance and respect for multiculturalism. We all want to see a lively and prosperous Albania, where people of different age, gender, abilities, religions, sexual orientation, ethnic, national, cultural and social background can thrive by living in dignity and peace within the European family.
Encouraging intercultural dialogue helps the society understand each other and move beyond simple tolerance, to embrace and celebrate the rich dimensions of each individuals’ unique features. It means recognizing that our differences make us stronger and more united, if explored in a positive and nurturing environment.
The aim of this program is not only to educate young generations on having a more positive outlook towards a diverse society but become the main promoters of multiculturalism and tolerance. By encouraging individuals and young groups of people to be free from prejudice and by fostering a climate where equity and mutual respect are intrinsic, we create a cooperative and caring young community, which draws intellectual strength from the synergy of its people.
The richness of the Albanian society lies in its willingness to embrace cultural diversity and its religious harmony, expressed also by the number of different communities and minority groups present in the state.
This program aims to enhance multicultural awareness through different broadly inclusive activities. It gives an opportunity to young people from different communities in representing the voices of these groups to promote mutual understanding for a more peaceful and thriving Albanian society within the EU.
