Gdańsk

A thousand-year history, a location at the crossroads of important commercial and communication routes, an extensive port and mercantile traditions - all this makes Gdańsk a meeting place of many cultures, nationalities and denominations. Contemporary Gdańsk - a half-a-million, dynamically developing agglomeration - is vibrant with life as before and again deserves to be called "the Pearl of the North."

The key challenge for the city of Gdansk concerning the young generation is combating exclusion and criminal careers and promoting the positive potential of youth. Gdansk wants to promote this by developing coaching and peer support methods and better co-operation across the board. Through MY GENERATION Gdansk wants to learn on good practices on integrated multi-actor cooperation and can contribute on experience of inter-disciplinary work.
