Europe is a continent of diversity and the unity of Europe relies on respect for diversity. There are many cultural and religious groups within this continent. One of the biggest and most rapidly increasing cultural/religious groups is Muslims. There were 56.19 million Muslim people living in the Europe in 2014. Recent tragic events in Middle East, big waves of refugees fleeing in Europe, tragic events connected with terrorism and media coverage of these additionally have raised tensions, hate speech, Islamophobia and xenophobia across Europe. Extremist political movements, biased media channels and online platforms triggering hate add to such prejudices and stereotypes. Particularly, young people can be easily influenced by these negative effects. On the other hand, there is obvious lack of discussion, misunderstanding, ignorance and stereotypes. For this reason, there is more need for dialogue and understanding between the cultural and religious communities of Europe.

Intercultural and inter-religious dialogue is an essential tool for human development and peace building. Even though the importance of interreligious dialogue has been increasingly recognized by the civil society, governments and European institutions in the past decades, a lot of efforts are still to be done in order to shape tolerant and sustainable society. Culture and religion may mean different things for each of us because its perception is highly influenced by our own experience, environment and target group. Learning the art of dialogue is both a personal and social process. Developing one's skills and capacity for dialogue requires a willingness to be open-minded while retaining one's critical judgment.

During this project, we aim to explore current cultural/religious problems in Europe, use non-formal education (NFE) to develop common tools and strategies that can be applied in order to change the perception of young people regarding cultural and religious diversity. This project will be also an opportunity to create a network for future cooperation and exchange of good practices related to the topic. Our vision is high quality youth work. And efficient networking and cooperation is obligatory for this aim.
