“One of the first activities we did in the project was to map good practices of youth work connected to intercultural dialogue and peacebuilding. This work alone gave us a lot of insights on what we still need to improve in youth work to implement more qualitative practices which can be considered best practices according to our criteria. We have also gained a lot of inspiration by our monthly presentations of good practices.”

– Karin, project manager
