Based in Berlin, the organisation aims to act as an exchange platform between cultures from the west and from the east. Its main members are young adults living in Berlin.
The European Intercultural Forum is a non-profit and non-political organisation which operates on a local, national and international level in the fields of European youth work, intercultural learning, arts and culture, European citizenship, youth mobility, conflict management, and human rights education.
We offer non-formal educational programmes such as youth exchanges, training courses, workshops, seminars, study visits, and volunteering programmes to enhance the skills and competences of young people or youth workers. Our main target group is motivated young people who are eager to get engaged in intercultural projects, but we also work with children, disadvantaged youngsters, qualified young adults, minorities' groups, internally-displaced people and disabled people.
