We took part in many international projects. Youth's Romuva have traditional ritual lithuanian/baltic folklore group (so we meet at least twice a week;). As well as we organise projects under YIA program we organize traditional celebration (Easters, Christmas Eve, Solstice etc.). Both local and international levels are very important for Lithuania's Youth Ramuva.

Why Are They Organizing?
Because we feel a lack of knowledge and understandment in work of NGO in issues connected with religion and interreligious learning.
What will happen?
Hell is other people. Deconstruction of otherness
Concept of the training course:
"Hell is other people" With this quote from J. P. Sartre famous play „No exit“ we want to express xenophobia and fear of otherness in our contemporary society. Tough „hell“ in this name of the project is getting even more correct meaning than just a metaphor of an evil. “Hell” in here has a strong religious meaning also (exactly in our seminar context „hell“ preserves its primordial sense which means „opposition to heaven“). Frequently conflicts between successors of different confessions arise because of inaptitude to understand „others“ like a part of them. This antagonistic preconception, this exclusiveness to any constructive dialogue is the main reason of conflict. The name of a training course express an aspiration to deconstruct the „otherness“ in order to fight and destroy antagonism. The aim of deconstruction of otherness is to find similarities and generalities which would bring us to dialogue for creating a better solutions for our nowadays difficult situation of religion but not for creating and encouraging continuing fights. Because these fights see only one sollution – destroying their opponent, and dialogue is for creating better world all together.
Accordingly to the project philosophical concept project’s aims is:
• Fight with xenophobia
• Improve personal competencies in field of multiculturalism and religion
• To share experience in field of fighting with religious discrimination
• To make friends for future projects and actions;)
Because of European Union year of combating poverty and social exclusion we have some extra aims, like:
• Promoting YIA program for youth of local society and etc.
