“Youth in Action” project “The Opportunities for Sustainable Europe”

“Youth in Action“ is the European Union programme that aims to inspire a sense of active European citizenship, solidarity, tolerance and mutual understanding among young Europeans and to involve them in shaping the Union's future. It makes an important contribution to the acquisition of competences through nonformal learning as well as to the promotion of young people's active participation in society and European cooperation in the youth field. Every year, thousands of projects are submitted by promoters in order to get financial support from the Programme; a selection process aims at granting the best projects.


Summary of the project

The project “The Opportunities for Sustainable Europe” was approved and the Youth Exchange was implemented from 10th to 16th of July. It brought together 30 young people from Social and Cultural Association of Youth of Limassol “New Power” (Cyprus), KPS DDM (Czech Republic) and Escola Oficial de Idiomas de Ourense (Spain) to discuss and take active part in actions pertaining to social responsibility, creativity and entrepreneurship and to foster social integration. These are considered the most important factors of creating a sustainable Europe.

The core activity of the program was a combination of workshops, seminars, outdoor activities and other non-formal educational methods. The seminars stressed out the importance of social responsibility, its role in society and its contribution for a socially responsible behaviour of EU citizens and developed the creativity and enterpreneurship skills of participants. The role of workshops was to involve the participants into the practical activities to gain shared knowledge, experience and to enhance creative thinking. Discussions and round-tables with representatives of social enterprises promoted structured dialogue and broadened the participants´ view on the existing opportunities.


Objectives

  • to offer young people all the important benefits of non-formal education
  • to promote European cooperation in the youth field
  • to foster creativity and enterpreneurial skills
  • to make Youth in Action Programme visible
  • to emphasize social responsibility.

Results

  • All the important benefits of non-formal education were offered to young people through the use of workshops and outdoor activities and improved participants’ knowledge and skills.
  • European cooperation in the youth field was promoted and gave young people the chance to come in contact with other European cultures. Mutual understanding between the participants who came from different European countries was fostered and  relationships  which could be very helpful in the future when planning social enterprises on a European level were developed.
  • Youth Exchange also promoted young people´s active citizenship and supported the solidarity and tolerance among young people. Thereby the Programme itself promoted the social responsibility to be created among the youth.
  • Participation in the group of young people from different countries fostered the creativity and enterpreneurial skills while participating in the Youth Exchange. Participans had the need to develop and extend their knowledge and were set to gain from this experience.
  • Finally the project helped ot make Youth in Action Programme more visible and also emphasized social responsibility in countries where european youth has not yet been shown the opportunities that such responsibility entails.
