The event will be represented by a one-day long festival, consisted of music, traditional dances, teamwork games and workshops, meant to create an intercultural environment. 

These actions offer an unique opportunity not only for promoting cultural diversity, non-formal education and volunteering, but also for increasing the awareness of the Turkish youth about the opportunities offered by the European Union’s Youth in Action Program. Moreover, through the unique combination of people with different cultural backgrounds and unconventional education methods, a bridge will be created between Turkey and Europe, opening new cooperation gates. 

The organization of this festival is supported by Gençlik Organizasyonları Merkezi (Youth Organizations Centre)in cooperation with the local authorities from Mugla. The team in charge with the design and implementation of the activities is composed of youngsters who are enrolled in the European Volunteering Service. The volunteers come from Romania, Ukraine, Denmark, Germany, France, Spain, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Portugal, Greece and other European countries. For the promotion of the festival, the volunteers have ambitious plans: they intend the preparation of a colorful dynamic flash-mob in the most crowded places of the city. Their flash-mob is the first event of this type organized in Mugla.
