The confluence of the Christian, Jewish and Muslim peoples in Medieval Spain offers a prime example of multiculturalism in contrast to the rest of Europe of the day. The cultural exchanges among Christian, Jewish and Muslim shaped the Spanish language, our urban geography, our architecture, our literature and therefore our identity.
Taking into consideration the recent humanitarian crisis of Syria, the terrorist incidents in France and Turkey and other recent events, ASDE Scouts de España considers as something vital importance to make tolerance and coexistence take roots among our young people and children. The beauty of the Mediterranean salty waters should unite all those that live on its shores. It should not be a stage for battles or conflicts, but rather a celebration of diversity and the many rich cultures that surround it.
In this context and under the motto “We, the Euro Mediterranean People”, ASDE Scouts de España will hold the “3 Cultures Camp”, an international camp that ASDE Scouts de España will hold this summer in Spain. During the 8 days that will take the event, 70 Pioneers/Ventures from the Euro-Mediterranean Region will experience an unforgettable camp where tolerance and coexistence will lead all their memories.
Our core objectives for this international summer camp are
- To bring together the Euro-Mediterranean People
- To endorse the Culture of Peace and counter hate speech
- To promote the coexistence amongst young people beyond faiths
- To encourage tolerance build and boost a Global citizenship.
