Title: The European Union – Past, Present, Future
Application Number: 617224-CITIZ-1-2020-1-PL-CITIZ-REMEM
The aim of the project “The European Union – Past, Present, Future” is to broaden knowledge about the history of the European Union and to show the benefits of EU membership, especially for young people. The project is carried out in partnership – the Hearing about Europe Association (Poland), the ETV Eurotreviso Association (Italy) and the Youth on Board Association (North Macedonia).
Thanks to the participation in the project of countries with different integration experiences (Italy – the founding country), Poland (member since 2004), North Macedonia (candidate country), young people learn about different perspectives of European integration and approaches to the Union. Equally important, our activities will take place not in large cities, but in smaller towns, thanks to which we will reach people who have limited access to information.
The project has planned a series of activities – 3 events entitled “EU Festival” in each partner country, which will include debates, table discussions, a European youth workshop, a European Union knowledge contest and a presentation of youth work. In addition to young people, the meetings will be attended by representatives of all partner countries, external experts, local government officials, lecturers and seniors.
At the end of the project, there will be a conference summarizing the project. The main effect of the project will be the works of young people as part of the “I – European” competition, all works will be translated into English and posted on the Internet, and the winners of individual competitions will go abroad for specific events with partners. In addition, at the end of the project, a brochure summarizing the project will be created, which will be sent to the most important people and cultural institutions, local governments, politicians, etc.
Completion date – 01/01/2021 – 30/06/2022
