WHY TO BELIEVE IN THE EUROPEAN UNION
Many young Europeans feel that the European Union (EU) is very far away of their lives. This remoteness causes disengagement from the EU, mistrust in their institutions and a perception that their views and talents are not taken into account. "Why to believe in the European Union” born to tackle this situation.
The aims of the project are to:
- bring closer the EU and their institutions to the young citizens.
- develop their European citizenship and civic competences.
- promote among them the European values and their sense of belonging to the EU.
- provide them information regarding European programmes and opportunities.
In order to achieve this, the project will develop a youth exchange with young people from Italy and Spain. During the exchange, the participants will develop their Europe citizenship through the following civic competences: political knowledge, political attention, political participation, political efficacy, and political tolerance.
Furthermore, the participants will learn about the following EU institutions: European Commission, European Parliament, Court of Justice of the EU, European Ombudsman, European Central Bank and the Economic and Social Committee. And the following programmes: Youth Guarantee, European Voluntary Service, European Voluntary Corps, Erasmus+, Creative Europe and EURES.
"Why to believe in the European Union" (2016-2-ES02-KA105-008069) is a project organised by Biderbost, Boscan & Rochin (BB&R), in collaboration with HRYO, and funded with support from the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission.
