In a survey published in 2015 by Eurostat, we see that only 11.9% of the European population feel they are active citizens. Moreover, through contact with young people, it can be noticed that many of them feel indifferent or disconnected with the rest of the community. They are not fully aware of their rights and obligations with regards to voting. The project has threefold objectives based on 3 part typology developed by Westheimer and Kahne (2004).

  1. ‘Personally responsible citizens’ – for whom citizenship education increases their awareness of individual rights and responsibilities
  2. ‘Participatory citizens’- for whom citizenship education also enhances their knowledge of participatory structures and rights, including participation in the community
  3. ‘Justice oriented citizens’ – for whom citizenship education also adds a high level of awareness of collective rights, political and social responsibility

In order to reach these goals this project consists of:

  • An APV which was held in February 2020 in Tortona, Italy;
  • A Youth exchange held in April 2020 (moved to April 2021) in Malta
  • youth workers training held in June 2020 (moved to June 2021) in Malta
  • A Youth Exchange held in November 2020 (moved to November 2021) in Ballyfermot, Ireland
  • A Youth Exchange held in April 2021 (moved to April 2022) in Tortona, Italy
