Through this initiative, more than 230 participants had the opportunity to enrich their curiosity with new knowledge on cultural assets that surround them, thus breaking the prejudices about the cultural heritage of other communities living in Kosovo. Furthermore, they developed a sense of belonging, critical awareness and sense of respect and preservation of cultural diversity as an important factor in the process of reconciliation.
