Project Summary

Project “The right to chose – chose right!” it is the result of cooperation of 6 groups of young people from Poland, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Macedonia, Italy and Cyprus, together 42 people. Through integration, friendship development and participation in the implementation of the schedule, each of us will strive to achieve the basic objectives: to gain knowledge about parliamentary mechanisms and in particular about the European Parliament, to develop information and promotion materials and to launch a campaign promoting participation in the European elections. Our project is in line with the objectives of the Erasmus + program, will contribute to promoting civic attitudes, spreading civic activity and, thanks to the presence of young people from different parts of Europe, we will also strengthen intercultural dialogue.

 

The project consists of 2 main activities: preparatory visit of 6 leaders on 29-30.03. 2019 and youth exchange on 14-20.04.2019. Both activities will be implemented in Wierzchosławice). In the vast majority of our activities will be based on non-formal education methods. The main methods of work include: integration games, group presentations, selfpresentations, discussions in the group and on the forum, simulations of the European Parliament, field workshops, working with social media, everyday moments of reflection, national evenings, evaluation activities and others. Thanks to our project, we will become conscious citizens, which will translate into both domestic activity, participation in elections, non-governmental and social organizations, involvement in the activities of local authorities, work with youth and for the benefit of young people. The project will develop in us the skills of discussing, arguing, daring for public speaking, asking questions, interest in youth problems and indicating the possibilities and means to solve them. Thanks to the intensive campaign, after the exchange our project will also partially help to solve the problem of low turnout in elections, in particular to the European Parliament and low activity of European youth in social and political life.
