Europe for Citizens. Italy.

Title:  “BET on! – a Better Europe Together”

Programme: Europe for Citizens.

Topic: Strand 2 Democratic engagement and civic participation – Measure Networks of Towns.

Description of the project:

Zola Predosa Municipality (IT) is looking  for Municipalities and Associations in order to participate in this project which themes are intercultural dialogue; young people’s civic consciousness and participation; youth activities and pro-activity promoting.

This project would like to work with young people between 15 and 29 years old (from schools/universities/associations/informal groups) on overcoming psychological and relational boundaries through the knowledge and the comparison between different cultures; acceptance and hospitality towards others seen as enhanced value; opposition to prejudices towards others.

Getting started from the motto the EU adopted in 2000, “Unionin diversity”, the activities will let us compare and learn what these young participants have in common and what, instead, make them different from each other, regarding:

  • Conciousness of being European citizens and awareness of the opportunities that this citizenship offers;
  • Civic participation as a duty, that let us fully benefit from our rights;
  • Volunteering as an expression of participation;
  • The values that we have in common (freedom of expression, peace, mutual respect).

Activities: activities will be realized through "video storytelling" to animate the debate on the intercultural theme and to represent the experiences and the feelings of young people. Participants shall getting to know/recognize others as individuals, possessing the same needs/wishes/interests, through English language but also through the language of images, seen as a way of communication to overcome language borders and with a strong and immediate impact.
