Youth participation in politics and decision-making processes is a crucial aspect for the future of the European Union and several initiatives have been promoted to commit young people in view of the upcoming European elections. The project deals with youth participation in politics, advocacy and European citizenship and it aims at raising awareness in young people on EU policies and Institutions. “Youth for Europe” is a long-term project, funded by the EU Commission in the framework of the call European Youth Together (KA3 Erasmus+).
“Youth for Europe” offers the young participants the chance to play a central role in the European decision -making process and to get knowledge of the EU policies through intercultural learning, Non-formal education and peer to peer activities. The main objective of the project is thus to stimulate a bottom-up process which will promote a more inclusive European society and establish dialogue and cooperation among young people, policy makers and organisations, by fostering debates at local, national and European level on EU policies.
