What is ‘real’ social change? How can the Mediterranean become (again) a region of fruitful exchange and cooperation? About 40 young people from around Europe and the Mediterranean meet from Oct 20th – 27th in the youth exchange under the title Creating Change – Our Approaches to Peaceful Communities to explore these question and more.
The exchange will take place on the Island of Malta, which was for centuries a place for cultures, religions, ideas, languages, etc. to meet – unfortunately not always in a peaceful way.
This exchange is chance to encounter ‘the other’, transform oneself and build a culture of peace and to communicate the story of this journey. It will serve as starting point for enhanced exchange and cooperation across the Mediterranean Sea in the areas of youth volunteering, human rights, inter-faith cooperation…
This youth exchange is funded by the European Commission’s Youth In Action Programme and supported by Euro-Mediterranean Youth Platform. It is organized by the young Ambassadors of the Universal Peace Federation in Europe (Youth UPF) and UPF Malta, in partnership with Shabka and our local partners.
