As part of the BIC activities, at the initial stage of the project, we have conducted an international survey among young people in six European countries (Bulgaria, Greece, Italy, Malta, North Macedonia, and Portugal). From December 2019 to March 2020 we managed to collect more than 200 responses.
The survey aimed at identifying young people’s feelings, difficulties, and experiences when arriving in a new cultural environment. The respondents’ answers reveal that living in another country could be difficult and challenging but, after all, it is a life-changing experience, which opens your mind to other people and cultures and breaks all stereotypes and prejudices.
We have summarised the main findings of the survey in our report Standpoints of Young People on Living Abroad
Our consortium believes that many youth organisations and educational centers might find the short report be useful when dealing with international mobility.
The project is implemented with the support of the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
