Project „Initiative for Tolerance” was especially focused on our tolerance and destroying any kind of prejudices. There were participants from Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Italy, Romania and from Turkey. People from different countries have their own different culture, history, religion, etc. This project mainly had to show how tolerant participating countries are. Everyone could express their point of view in inspiring discussion. Workshops about tolerance were carried out through interactive games, projects and presentations.
Our project took place right in the city of Istanbul, Turkey. Istanbul is really the charming city which should everybody visit! We were accommodated in a dormitory in the university campus. Thank organizers there was a possibility to visit many interesting places, such as historical city centre (Taksim), Miniaturk, Turkish National Museum etc. I think that everyone had a great time and really enjoyed it. We met new friends, recognized new culture and fantastic country.
