The programme brings together young people; age 16-18 years from areas around Warrington, Belfast and Dublin on a ten-day, two-leg residential exchange, which rotates around the same areas. They live, learn and socialise together, whilst exploring the differences and similarities of their respective communities and cultures. The project raises the self-awareness of participants concerning the different prejudices young people can hold and how this can lead to conflict, through acting in a discriminatory manner.
