Project Summary

The “Active Citizenship Laboratory” is a eight (8) days training course that will be realized by USB and funded by Erasmus+ from 20-28/05/2018 in Thessaloniki, Greece. The training bring together 28 YouthWorkers, YoungLeaders, trainers and staff of civil society organisations from 11 countries of Europe. with different culture and social background to integrate and learn through non-formal education about the paramount importance of youth participation in society and the development of the European citizenship.

The main objective is to educate and motivate the youth to participate actively in social, political and democratic life not only in their society but in Europe as well, so as to embrace more the European values. An active citizen may build a better society not only for themselves but for everyone else as they motivate more people to participate and care about the social and economic life. Being an active citizen is not limited to local level but it goes even further, to the European one.

The results of the project and the methodology used will be uploaded and will be available in electronic form to
everyone. After the realization that the lack of youth participation is a problem need to be addressed we decided to address to this by creating this program of youth mobility which will motivate young people to understand the significance of participation and have a voice that can be heard. And also acknowledge that the Erasmus + programs offer the chance to new Europeans to feel more European citizens.
