Multilateral Youth Exchange CLOWNS WITH BORDERS engaged 42 participants from Hungary, Slovenia, Greece, United Kingdom, Italy, France and Croatia. It took place in Bela krajina from 20. to 29. June 2016. The youth exchange focused on bringing laughter and freedom to the Schengen border of European Union which recently witnessed many difficulties due to the wired fence that the governments put on the border territory to prevent uncontrolled refugee flow. The aim of the project was to bring together young people with interest in circus/ theatre performing, clowning, storytelling, video making and compose a Caravan that visited the villages along the border between Metlika and Adlešiči, which were known by local's hospitality and surrounded by beautiful nature. The caravan brought life, vitality, joy, laughter and humour in the villages which recently got affected by the wired fence. Besides, we tackled the civil rights issues, made a documentary video essay, made interviews with locals along the way and took care that stories from the margins reached the centre(s). Youth exchange raised awareness about recent border issues related to controlling the refugee flow which opened up many questions of democracy, human and environmental rights and free access to the common goods. As we believed that laughter was the best way to fight fear, we tackled the subjects that were raising deep concern all over Europe, but in a way that strengthened our inner resilience and ability to be creative, to learn and prosper. This is especially important because many participants of the exchange derived from socially deprived backgrounds, such as Roma, immigrants and young people with economic obstacles. We made events such as storytelling evening, circus stunts and press conference and invited all stakeholders in the region and broader. Short video films that participants made during the exchange were distributed through web channels and social platform networks. The activities were a framework of gaining 8 key competences of lifelong learning through which our deep intention for creating a more solidary, inclusive Europe was formed.
