Relying on this, participants will be presenting their national history pointing on similarities and discrepancies. The participants will understand European community, how the concept of history has change and influenced young generation and be encouraged to feel as a equal citizens of common Europe. European citizenship will be fully presented and discussed.  Young people are the future of the Earth so they need to develop themselves all the time. According to this, great emphasis will be place on improvement of soft skills such as: assertiveness, negotiation, team work, etc., and empowering a position on labor market.  Each country will organize an intercultural evening which will provide knowledge about history, culture, traditions and customs of participants’ countries. That will broaden horizons and open participants’ minds.
