The objective of this project is to find new tools for citizenship awareness, through the implementation of workshops that compare and discuss the political agendas in the beneficiary countries.We work for:
- Motivating EU citizens to vote and encouraging their active democratic participation;
- Developing a stronger sense of ownership of the European project;
- Provoking a debate on the rise of Euroscepticism and its implications for the voting process and future of the EU.
The project consists of 3 transnational activities In Bulgaria, Portugal and Germany.
Each project country will have a workshop on the political agendas of local parties and European bodies will be compared with each other, but also with the opinions of individuals.
