YOUNG DIPLOMATS - Project Description
This project will try to establish the link between different kinds of celebrations in Asia and Europe. It will help to know and understand better the spirit of cultural manners and bring students from Asia and Europe closer to each other through the process of self presentation and studying different traditions. It will help the students to understand better their own traditions and historical/cultural roots as well.
Schools put photo-reportages of national holidays to a website, and the selected ‘international ambassadors' of each school, collaborating with the embassies, will make multimedia presentations of the different celebrations for one publishing, as well as conduct actual celebrations at the school.
