A youth exchange "Europe United: Facing Challenges, Reinforcing Solidarity" in Greece


The project "Europe United: facing challenges, reinforcing solidarity" is a transnational initiative for 50 young people from seven different countries: Estonia, Italy, Germany, Greece, Lithuania, Poland and Spain.
Our partner E.K.O Greece will coordinate and organise the project in the beginning of April 2019 in Athens. Group leaders for this project will all meet beforehand, in March 2019, to discuss the activities and prepare the group.
 
During the project the participants will exchange ideas and knowledge on the fundamental principles of the European Union and its function, on the significant benefits for the country members, on its key role in safeguarding peace at the global level, as well as on the major challenges the European Union faces nowadays. Important challenges, such as the financial crisis, the high youth unemployment rates, the ongoing immigrant and refugee flows, the rise of the far-right, and the upsurge of terrorism, will be examined in detail. Great emphasis will be placed on initiating in-depth discussions regarding effective and sustainable solutions for these challenges and for reinvigorating confidence in the idea of true European Unity.
 
Through their involvement in joint non-formal education activities (intercultural dialogue, personal testimonies, activation activities, interactive exercises and open discussions), as well as through a range of cultural visits, intercultural evenings and of by means of their direct interaction, the participants will gain familiarity and cultivate their appreciation for other cultures and create an international network of friends and colleagues. 
 
As a result, it's hoped that the young participants will return to their home countries with a deeper understanding of the major values of the European Union, such as democracy, human rights and equality. They are better equipped to discuss policies and practices of the EU and how they can be adapted to facilitate universal socioeconomic integration, with an enhanced status as European citizens and feel more unity to respond to the new challenges of the European Union.

  
This project has been funded with support from the European Commission Erasmus+ programme.
