SUMMARY

The main objective of the project was to build long-lasting friendships between people from Niksic and Sarajevo and to foster a network of communication in the region. This was achieved by means of young people who showed that after the first activity this region has a great future. The core activity – Summer School that brought together all youngsters helped them to create relationships that will last for a long time. The proof was the fact that the Facebook group called “Borders are just lines in the geographic Atlas” (which they created after their first activity – a visit to Sarajevo) has been very active after the project ended. Youngsters are using it as tool to talk, share ideas and make arrangements for future visits. These young people showed that there are no borders when they are sharing ideas and hopes for better future, and when ideas are supported with knowledge they’ve gained during the Project they will surely become great young leaders prepared to apply their growing capacity to engage and make a difference back home in their families, schools and communities.
