The project partners considered that in order to break stereotypes more knowledge on the partner country was needed. Since the initial questionnaires pointed out that there were certain prejudgments, related to the way people dress in the project countries, it was felt that a Fashion Booklet focused on traditional costumes worn in Romanian, Portugal, Lithuania and Turkey would be the best means to correct the respective wrong opinions.

Stereotypes cannot be overcome if we do not try to undersand each other. However, understanding cannot be gained in the absence of knowledge. The purpose of our project is to break stereotypes through shared experience and knowledge.

The fourth day of the Project Meeting in Lithuania was dedicated to planning the next project meetings, especially the one to take place in Carsamba (Turkey), in October 2015. We discussed about the activities to be done with the students until the meeting and what to do once in Carsamba.
The project teams decided upon the following activities:
1.PowerPoint presentations about the traditional costumes worn in each project country; the presentations would be used as a basis for creating a booklet on traditional fashion in Romania, Turkey, Portugal and Lithuania.
2.PowerPoint presentations and videos about the social characteristics of the project countries.
3.Final draft of the multi-lingual dictionary.
4. Turkish language classes to be attended in Turkey.
5.Gather more information on Turkey with the help of multimedia.
Various aspects of the intellectual output were reviewed and new information was added.
The third day (September, 16th, 2015) of our Project Meeting in Lithuania was a very special one, because it gave us the opportunity to meet the administrative officials of the host city.
We visited certain parts of the city hall and the administrative staff explained us the development of Siauliai, after the fall of The Soviet Union. We found out that Siauliai is a modern city which has much to offer to its inhabitants.
The second half of the working day was dedicated to the intellectual output. Each team presented the work done on the following chapters: introduction, review of national and international literature on stereotypes and analysis of the stereotypes questionnaire. The project partners analysed each other’s work and traced the steps to be followed next.
