We believe…

that, “The smallest distance in between two persons is a smile”. Humor for us is not just a tool, it’s an attitude towards life. We believe that the developing and spreading of this attitude is increasing the quality in Youth Work.

We plan…

to promote high-quality youth work by understanding better the challenges of intercultural youth work from the aspect of different „humour languages”, and by developing concrete methods and a helping network to answer this challenges.

We decided…

to run a 14 month long, strategical partnership project in four countries – Hungary, Italy, Romania & Spain – by the following organisations: Birs OTI Hungary, Muovimente,  New Horizons Foundation & PARKERI.

With the help of…

trainers, experts, youthworkers, and an Erasmus+ KA2 project, supported by Spanish National Agency for Erasmus+: Youth in Action Programme. The project is Co-funded by the European Union. More informaton about Erasmus+ possibilities: http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/erasmus-plus_en
