  2.  To understand the difference between living alongside someone and constructive coexistence.
  3.  To design strategies for the prevention of social conflicts arising from cultural differences.
  4.  To mobilise our student youth networks for social cohesion and empower students to act as multipliers in their own milieu.
  5.  To get in touch with the reality of the hosting country, concerning the issue of the multicultural environment (nations living together).
  6.  To empower students to develop different actions and projects that once they have returned to their organisation they could put into practice (either in partnership with other JECI-MIEC movements or any other organisations).
