The idea of the project comes by the French organization “AILE” situated in Brest , France . The project coordinator in France- Ella Krasowska (Polish, voluntary in France ) had chosen the partners: there were Malta, Poland, Bulgaria and France.

Also, the idea of the project was to meet young people from different European countries and traditions and to share our knowledge and perception about the world by doing thing that every young human being loves to do: things like games, walks, music, dances. Also, we learned many things about Europe and the European Union by organizing “The Huge game about Europe ”.
After preliminary talks on the Internet with our future partners, we began preparing the Bulgarian presentation and the presentation of our organization. After the selection of the participants, every one of them took active part in the organization. Everybody was free to make suggestions and to present himself in different activities.
We chose together a Bulgarian movie that represents the live of the young people in Bulgaria , we bought some products for the Bulgarian evening and we brought with us different kinds of Bulgarian music. We prepared also a national Bulgarian dance.
The main goals and expectations that we had about this project were achieved. We learned a lot of each other, of our countries, traditions, cultures, cuisine, music and dances. We learned a lot of the European Union and its structures. We had traveled in one of most beautiful regions in France – Brittany , where Brest is situated. We had made new friends.
