The goals of the project 

The goal of the project is to allow youngsters from conflict countries to get to know each other, get to know each other’s music and culture, customs, traditions and food, to become friends and hopefully after the exchange to create even more follow up activities that will involve even more young people in peace building and reconciliation rather than in war.

All costs for accommodation and food are covered by the Erasmus + programs. Travel costs will be reimbursed up to € 100 for participants from Germany. We charge a participation fee of 50€!

We will be accommodated in a youth center/group house in Osterholz- Scharmbeck, close to the city of Bremen, Germany.

The accommodation will be simple. Participants will be sharing rooms with 3-4 people from different nationalities. We strive to accommodate the diverse needs of our guests when assigning rooms, taking into consideration individual preferences and requirements, including those related to gender identity and expression. Some of the rooms are with private and some with shared bathrooms.

We are the only group in the house. Two of our NaturKultur team members will take care of the food and logistics.
