Open Your Eyes!
What Does make Lives in Our Communities Wonderful?
GlobaLab is an international youth exchange project, which brought together young people from 4 countries (Lithuania, Bulgaria, Cyprus and Slovak Republic) for joint activities. The project aimed to reinforce active global citizenship among young Europeans and make them become promoters of the fundamental values, such as solidarity, tolerance, respect for diversity, equality, justice and peace. The project expected to raise awareness among young Europeans on interconnectivity existing among people, countries and cultures across the globe; to explore the common issues existing in local, national and global level; to build their active global citizenship skills in order to make them active towards coping with the challenges in the global society; to foster civic actions of youngsters towards sustainable future of the communities in Europe and around the world.
The project established a laboratory for young Europeans, where they were be able to share their views and become aware of the realities of different communities in the context of globalization, to define their own roles in a global society, as well as to develop competencies necessary for contributing to sustainable changes in both local communities and globally. The activities of the youth exchange also stimulated their behavioral change in order to contribute to sustainable development both locally and globally.
