Brisa Intercultural is an intercultural organisation based in Burgos, Spain. We work for a democratic, diverse and borderless Europe. As a non-governmental, politically independent, and non-profit organisation, Brisa is open to every person who wants to volunteer, to organise activities or projects both for our community and for international and to participate in intercultural projects.
Brisa Intercultural organises different events in order to gather young people who can interact through discussion of social issues. Brisa is already applying to the quality label for being a hosting organization for volunteers as well as two youth exchanges. Our volunteers are writing two European Solidarity Corps projects and they are attending many workshops and projects around Europe with different topics of interest for young Europeans, such as workshops on European citizenship, project management, sustainability, equality, NGOs and others. We work with Non-Formal Education methods; team work, motivation and respect are our philosophy. Understanding and exploring the multicultural dimension of the European continent, removing national borders, fighting for tolerance and creating open minded citizens are our main goals.
