At the same time will be discussed stereotypes experienced by young, especially with few opportunities, in relation to their socio-geographical. With this we intend to build an international network of young islanders in which to expose problems, difficulties and share ideas and strategies for action for their resolution and development of future actions.
Regarding awareness, awareness and consolidation of European citizenship by young islanders aspire is to discuss the "gap" between European islands and mainland Europe, and then develop strategies to mitigate this problem. Furthermore, longs is to enhance knowledge of young people about methods of social and cultural education, using informal and dynamic methods such as workshops, tours, plays, cooperative games and simulation, with regard to this issue, this being a strategy to develop and consolidate the use of non-formal education in this Action of the Youth in Action Programme.
The young participants of the project "No man is an Island" comes solely from the European mainland islands (including Canary - Spain, Princess Island - Turkey, Sardinia - Italy, Madeira - Portugal) , by reason of being considered a population with fewer opportunities due to geographic obstacles.
