Abstract

By taking part in international exchanges or other international youth work projects, young participants become more aware of their own identity, acquire valuable skills and strengthen their understanding of what it means to be European. Experiencing mobility in this way gives them an opportunity to make some profound positive changes in their lives.

Experience has shown that disadvantaged young people from a variety of cultural backgrounds can benefit in particular measure from activities offered at the local level. This is where the project' Kommune goes International (KGI)', running from 2011 until 2014, comes in: Over a period of three years, local authorities of varying sizes and structures have worked with local partners to strengthen local level international youth work over the long term and make it accessible to all young people.
