The programme includes lectures, workshops, group discussions. informal learning and recreational events. Also planned are international nights, where participants from each country will showcase their culture, cuisine, education and art so that young people can get to know the customs of other countries.

Also scheduled are educational trips so that participants can get to know the monuments and landscape of Cyprus.
