Inclusion through Activism, Communication and Tolerance 

Co-Funded by the European Union under Erasmus+ programme
iACT project co-founded by the European Union for youth activism

The results of the project: a digital course on social inclusion and equality in democratic societies, an introduction to the digital course on the YouTube channel and the curriculum of the interactive educational program, can be found here! :)

The International Arts Centre from Zagreb in partnership with U Thrive Europe from Brussels implemented their first joint Erasmus+ project called - Inclusion through activism, communication and tolerance (iACT) - in the period from November 2021. to November 2023. in Zagreb and Brussels.


The project meant to: firstly, increase the capacities of our two partner institutions for work with diverse groups of young people and young people with less opportunities through international cooperation and synergy in the development of new activities and secondly, to empower young people (18-25 years old) from different backgrounds to actively participate in society on local, national and European level by enabling them to understand and embrace their identities and diversity in all its forms. 


Thirty young participants (15 from Croatia and 15 from Belgium) coming from various backgrounds joined the project. Participants were interested in exploring the issues surrounding inclusion, activism, communication and tolerance and were looking for new answers and solutions. At the end of the project the participants created a new, online course for their peers. Our goal during iACT project was to provide creative activities, stimulating discussions, an outlet for artistic expression, new friendships, some travel and lots of fun. 


All activities, including the training and exchange of expertise for trainers and interactive workshops for young people, were free of charge for participants.
