So often you might have heard young people say “no matter who we vote for, nothing will change”. Well, this project hopes to challenge this status. The goal of this youth exchange is not to form a political movement, but to get young people off the couch and empower them to make the changes they want to see in their world, starting from their homes, their communities, their countries and in the EU, and in the near future even in the world.
For the ones that would like to join us on this 9-day journey – check below for more information and the application. 🙂
Location: Sea Cleopatra in Agia Napa, Cyprus
Dates: 16. – 24. January 2020
The idea behind this project is to give young people the tools and resources to understand their rights as EU citizens, to understand the reasoning behind the choices of their governments, to challenge these choices and to be actively involved in the reform that is needed in their communities and in the EU. The program is designed to help young people understand the process of policy reform, the methods and approaches needed by policymakers to make these choices, understanding that meeting the needs of a society also means that some expenses need to be covered and to allow the youth to take these expenses into consideration, thus not only demanding reform, but contributing to this reform through understanding that the system, be it a local government, or even the EU, needs all of us to contribute in order for it to serve us all.
In short, the Objectives of this project are:
