What is it about?

The project will select 28 youngsters (18-24 years old) from different European Countries (Belgium, Bosnia Herzegovina, Italy, Romania, Serbia – Portugal and Cyprus to be confirmed) according to their orientation towards EU policies related to the selected themes (Eurosceptics and Euro supporters) and will bring them together in 6 Events held in Italy, Republic of Serbia, Romania, Bosnia Herzegovina, Belgium and Cyprus (to be confirmed).

During the 6 Events, youngsters will be involved in laboratories, workshops and study visits and will experiment with innovative ways of debate and knowledge sharing (storytelling, augmented reality, Lego gaming…).

Starting from knowing EU history and values, EU bodies and their functioning, participants will develop critical thinking on sensitive matters, debating and exchanging their thoughts with peers from other EU Countries, for finally developing a document containing all their ideas and recommendation to be presented in Brussels to the EU policymakers during the last event.


Applications are open until July 27 via the link!
