The objectives of the Training in Diversity are to:
1) Explore the concept of minority and its possible differentiations and specificities.
2) Exchange examples of existing grassroots projects that are effectively involving young people from minorities.
3) Identify practices and methods that could help to review and improve the non-formal educational programmes of NSO.
