Label: Purpose & Activities

In the period of November 2014 to date, with the generous support and guidance of the URI Youth Programme and URI Europe, CC founding members Lejla Hasandedic and Rosen Dimov met with different people in Antalya, Izmir, Bodrum, Istanbul and Ankara who were interested to extend URI model of cooperation all across Turkey. The society is homogenous and not open for “others”. They decided to set up a CC to work together to overcome prejudice and stereotypes.  Their focus will be on action –trying to cause changes by social events and other cross-cultural activities. They believe that actions will bring changes in people s way of thinking and therefore overcome prejudices. One of the activities they will be focused on is social entrepreneurship. They will be using sports, art and culture as a tool for dialogue

Lasting friendships among people from different cultures in Turkey
