All the participants managed to integrate well and understand the idea of intercultural learning and European multiculturalism. All the metdods used, worksops, games and competition made us realise how important the European integration is. The experience that we valued the most was the participation of the countries which are not EU Member States, which made us consider the philosophy behind the European Union as very beneficial and creative. Thanks to participation in the project we were given a chance to learn entrepreneurship, we improved organisational and language skills. A visit to Auschwitz was a chance to discuss tolerance among different cultures and nations, democracy and open mindedness. In the project 4 of the participants were from children’s home which also gave an added value to the project. The project was a big success, majority of the activities were in the open air which also contributed to promoting sport and outdoor activities.
During the project there were 4 multicultural evenings organised. They were all led and organised by participants from all the countries involved. Thanks to them we learned the history and culture of Poland, France, Bielorus and Georgia.
The project was a great chance to learn that integration is a key to success, and despite some linguistic problems we managed to learn a lot, open for different cultures and make a lot of new friendships.

They all, despite mature age, are still full of life, they cultivate their passions and develop their hobbies. Each country has prepared a brief artistic presentation on elderness and passing time. Then, during the workshop all versions were combined under the guidance of a professional director. The leitmotif of the final presentation was the Singer’s “Ole and Trufa”.
