Bricks Made of Words aims to bridge the gap between young Europeans and the Union’s policy makers, through allowing a better understanding of Eurosceptics’ arguments as well as Euro-supporters’ triggers.
The project process aims to foster the civic engagement of European youth. The overall project idea is based on the concept that Euroscepticism can be considered as a challenge and a resource to detect possible solutions to the problems Europe is facing today, and to set the bases of a new Europe, meant to be the Europe of all its Citizens.
What are key European values and policies and how citizens can make a difference are core questions that the project “Bricks Made of Words: building Europe again through dialogue” will try to answer through 6 events held in Italy, Republic of Serbia, Romania, Bosnia Herzegovina, Belgium and Cyprus, where local citizens, policy makers, experts, facilitators, students will meet and discuss together to debate different point of views, find common grounds and design together new perspectives and policy proposals.
