“Culture takes diverse forms across time and space. This diversity is embodied in the uniqueness and plurality of the identities of the groups and societies making up humankind. As a source of exchange, innovation and creativity, cultural diversity is as necessary for humankind as biodiversity is for nature. In this sense, it is the common heritage of humanity and should be recognised and affirmed for the benefit of present and future generations.” Article 1 UNSECO Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity. The youth exchanges are conducted with young people from different backgrounds and different cultures in the Program countries and Partner countries. Although a friendly and democratic atmosphere is aimed to be created in the youth exchanges, there sometimes arise difficulties and misunderstandings due to the different cultural backgrounds. Thus the young people's learning process may fall at risk.
