The main aims of the project titled „Böhönye and Culture Break Borders for strengthening civil society through cultural exchanges" are: the strengthening of the cooperation of local civil society through cultural activities and thus the increase of local democracy, social cohesion, the enhancing of the cooperation of neighboring local governments, the increase of local government efficiency and giving opportunities for the two project partners to get to know – through the bilateral cooperation activities – the local government and institutional system of the two countries, the operative mechanisms of the civil sphere, to exchange knowledge and experiences on the communal building and network-building role of cultural and intercultural activities and to create a joint project concept synopsis together as well for Böhönye to be able to create its own strategy in the theme of culture based on Norwegian examples. 
Both the experts of Böhönye and CBB will get to know personally the activities of the two organizations in culture and the activities in the civil and educational, cultural and local government arena of the two countries, as two study trips will take place in the framework of the project. The representatives of Böhönye will go on a study-trip to Norway, to meet the representatives of local governments, civil organizations, local institutions to exchange experiences in culture, education, local governance and good governance. In the end of the project, the experts of the Norwegian CBB will travel to Böhönye to share their views on the significance of the mediating role of culture in the form of a workshop. Two documents will be prepared during the project: a joint project concept synopsis and the strategic document of Böhönye which summarizes the role of culture in strengthening local civil cooperation. Project results will be made available in an extensive scope in the form of a press conference and of continuous communication in the webpage of Böhönye.
