    Seminar "Youth for Arab Baltic Cooperation" organized by Kultūros centras "In Actio", held in Vilnius on 19-25 November 2012 under the "Youth in Action" Programme was a very interesting project. Organizers skillfully combined the seminar with Days of Arab Culture, taking place at the same time in Vilnius. This created an unique opportunity to not only expand knowledge but also to get in touch with rich Arab culture, which resulted in the intensification and to facilitation of dialogue with the youth leaders representatives of the Middle East and North Africa, which was the main objective of the project. Taking part in various activities participants had the opportunity to not only get to know each other, but also discover so many similarities between seemingly very different cultures of each European countries that lie on Baltic Sea and the Mediterranean Arab countries. The culmination of the project was unveiling of constitution of Užupis, independent republic located in the limits of Vilnius, in the Arabic language. Because of its theme the seminar was a great opportunity to reflect on the future of Europe from the perspective of two different cultures located around two distant seas. Such meetings allow us to better understand ourself and look favorably on otherness and differences. I deeply encourage everyone to take part in similar initiatives and reflections;)
