Europe has always been diverse, and it is becoming more so. This booklet finds out why and how this diversity can bring benefits, presenting some project examples to inspire you. This brochure gives a glimpse of reasons why Europe should celebrate its diversity and aims to stimulate new ideas for initiatives that can do more to promote diversity and fight for equality and tolerance.

This booklet intends to make the anti-racism and diversity educational activities available to a wider variety of people in different contexts.

This booklet is not an in-depth encyclopaedia covering all aspects of Peer Education and Cultural Diversity, but it can be used as an essential guide of tips and tricks to get you moving on your own peer projects. As part of the strategy for reaching the needs of young people, SALTO Cultural Diversity and the Austrian National Agency joined forces to plan the PiPo (Peering in Peering out) training course.

To understand what Intercultural Communication is and in order not to propose a dictionary of terms, which would be like grasping the intangible, this booklet brings together different case studies and experience taken from European youth leaders.

The inspiration for this booklet came from the Quality in Cultural Diversity Projects seminar in co-operation with SALTO Cultural Diversity and the Turkish National Agency. While reading the booklet, you will find several references and outcomes from the event. This booklet aims to help you reflect upon your own experience as well as provide you with ideas taken from the best existing practice which can contribute to Quality in future Cultural Diversity projects.

This resource pack contains a set of tools and methods for youth activities, some personal insights of other youth workers involved in Intercultural Communication projects as well as theoretical inputs and references for further work in this area. Outcome of the training course organised by SALTO Cultural Diversity and the Bulgarian and Romanian National Agencies in September 2008, this booklet is a practical toolkit for youth work in the context of Intercultural Communication.

This leaflet aims at answering the how, where, and what ways you can be more successful on the topic of Intercultural Dialogue. This leaflet was produced by SALTO Cultural Diversity in co-operation with the Turkish National Agency for the Youth in Action programme.

The We Are All Europeans booklet aims to convey a positive and empowering image of youth with a migrant and minority background by highlighting how youth projects can empower young people to see cultural diversity as an asset, and migration as an opportunity.

SALTO Cultural Diversity has created a resource pack for youth workers across Europe based on the individual themes of its long running network course, ‘Value the Difference’. The Resource Pack contains 9 chapters (reflecting the different topics of the Value the Difference training course – including Migration, Citizenship and Intercultural Competence) which are split up into 2 different sections; one giving up to date information, data and case studies on the relevant topics, with the second providing practical examples of how to engage young people with these topics.

This research aims at giving validity to the 'working definition' of Intercultural Competence created for SALTO Cultural Diversity as well as linking the current practice to theory. The report elicits how far the qualities within Intercultural Competence can be part of youth work practice, and it illustrates them with real examples to make the definition operational.

Taking account of the growing importance of training offers for trainers in Europe, the Partnership Programme and the SALTO Training and Co-operation Resource Centre organised the first "European Stakeholders Meeting on European-Level Training of/for Trainers". During this meeting, Miguel Angel García López presented a "Mapping Study of European-Level Trainings of Trainers" in which he identified the past as well as the current offers for trainings of trainers in Europe.

In the main part of the study, the authors present possible objectives and advisable key contents (in terms of knowledge, attitudes and skills) of an eventual training process in relation to each of the eight key competences. Subsequently, a concept for a training scheme is proposed that would serve to qualify European level youth work trainers in accordance with the competence profile and the eight key competences for lifelong learning.
