Young people learn to work together with respect and tolerance to each other, in very practical ways, designing, learning the technique of mosaic in international mixed teams, by implementing 4 large 3-dimensional mosaic sculptures with animal figures, symbolizing diversity in Europe.
The programme also includes: visits to the Environmental Footpath ofKryoneri, the Environmental Museum and the archaeological site of Stymfalia, the Archaeological Museum of Ancient Corinth, acquaintance with Greek dances together with members of the Kryoneri Cultural Youth Association, meeting with the Corinthian Youth County Council NOSYN and a film night in the amphitheatre of Kryoneri on 12.7.2012, 9.30 pm.
