The long journey of the project “European Living Library for Young Citizens” is slowly coming to an end. The final set of events and meetings was held from November 4 to 7, 2022, in Belgrade, Serbia, thus concluding a series of activities that have visited Thessaloniki, Bijeljina, Skopje, Valencia, and Ljubljana over the past 2 years. The Belgrade event as the final one included many activities and people coming from many countries around Europe. For this event apart from partner countries we had people coming from new countries ready to learn and multiply ideas of the European Living library for young citizens in their countries.
A series of events were held that included meetings, workshops, and promotional and public events. Events were also open to the public on 4th November afternoon in the main walking zone of Belgrade in Belgrade City library and on 5th November for the main public activity held in Library “Petar Kočić” and attracted numerous citizens from the local community who had a chance to read our living books coming from many European countries this time. These encounters between “readers” and “books” enabled them to exchange experiences, ideas, life stories and other aspects of their identities. This is also an event where we finalise recordings, testimonials and life stories that will be merged into short films to be shown in civic education classes in schools with the goal of promoting European values and mutual understanding.
