New centres for Europe’s young people
Many countries have developed youth
A youth centre which consciously promotes intercultural and international understanding has a number of key features:
- It uses participatory methods and non-formal learning;
- It deliberately engages in international and intercultural exchange and learning;
- It promotes awareness and encourages the development of Europe’s diverse cultural identities;
- It shares the Council of Europe’s values of universal human rights and pluralist democracy;
- It seeks solutions to such problems as xenophobia and racism.
