European Citizenship through active participation? Our societies are based on its citizens. Especially in the current situation, facing times of crisis and if we want to build a Europe that citizens can relate to, we need to think of creating a culture of participation. Europe starts with the people in the local communities. Therefore active participation of young people in our societies is first of all a learning process where equality of opportunities has to be ensured, mutual understanding among young people promoted, intercultural learning and active citizenship should be cornerstones.
The Training will provide the occasion to share experiences, to foster sustainable and equivalent partnerships, to support capacity building, to contribute towards inventive projects by exploring new working methods and strategies, to improve the quality of future projects and to develop further activities. The methods used will be based on the principles and practise of non-formal education taking into account the needs, motivations and previous experiences of the participants. Further the TC will provide space for debate, individual and group reflection, and encourage exchange of best practices.
