In our societies, we are facing mistrust among citizens, resulting in discrimination and rejection of “the others”. This harms our living together. This first edition of VALUE FAIR aims to support actors of youth field in sharing, understanding and identifying the social changes our Non-Formal Education (NFE) work intends to reach. It focuses on how the values dignity, respect, empathy, solidarity and integrity are approached, translated, promoted and transmitted through Non Formal Education. The Value Fair will not focus on ‘tools’ and ‘methods’, but will have focus on the “why” and “what for” of our work.
