Crown Princess Katherine’s Foundation in cooperation with Lifeline Chicago organized the trip for four children from Centre for the Protection of Infants, Children and Youngsters “Zvecanska” to the UNESCO youth summer camp in Chalkidiki, Greece.
Children stayed one week in the camp and during that time they joined many workshops, gained new knowledge and friends, and also presented Serbia to the children from other countries.
The youth summer camp aims to promote intercultural dialogue, rapprochement of civilizations and the dissemination of education, sciences, culture and sports as developmental tools that combat social exclusion, while safeguarding peace. Moreover, it aims to establish a network of exchange, among youth from the Balkan countries, encouraging deeper understanding on issues pertinent to modern societies such as peace, human rights, cultural diversity, gender equality and sustainable development, which lie at the heart of UNESCO’s priorities. Boys and girls aged between 12 and 16 years old, from Greece, Cyprus, Romania, Croatia, Serbia, Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria and Slovenia participate in this program.
