As a part of the Balkan Youth Festival program and the program of the short-term EVS volunteers, a flash mob performance took place in front of hotel “Sandanski”, in which the volunteers discussed few important topics with the local people. The topics were presented as frozen pictures on topics that are attractive among the active society. The language barriers were crashed when everyone in a circle was communicating in their own languages. A melodic line of non-understandable language that could be understood only when you see the visualization of their faces and gesticulations. It helped in crashing the quiet atmosphere and in creating collective energy for expressions. Based on preliminary planned conception, some photographic compositions of moments of discrimination, diversity, awakening of Eco-consciousness and presenting the process of recycling of plastic bottles took place. Art-exchange, meeting new friends, communication through pictures and gesticulations.

Opening the doors of democracy, accepting youth with different statements and visions, creating universal society, in which all different attitudes in the process of getting free from the prejudices and stereotypes are integrated.

The steps of recycling are shown in few pictures which present the whole process. Dialogue for collaboration for the future, getting new ideas as a mechanism for the life of the youngsters.

As a whole the performance went well, the local citizens were interested in the topics and the way of acceptance and analysis of very attractive topics. In about forty minutes with a lot of action, laughter and smiles. I am very satisfied of the whole realization.
