Intact project: student meeting on European values, active citizenship and twinnings in Brindisi (IT)

Dec 17, 2011

EU values and Enlargement Youth empowerment & Education

As a part of the INTACT project, funded by the Europe for Citizens Programme of the European Union, has been realised in Brindisi (Italy) an event for students of secondary schools.
The meeting, promoted by the Municipality of Brindisi with the ALDA Office cooperation in the city, the Youth Information Office and in collaboration with IPRES, took place on 16th of December in the City Hall.
During a first introductory moment the promoters presented the project and its aims and the twinning activities of the Municipality of Brindisi.
The students were then involved in a debate on active citizenship and twinnings, aimed at the identification of new needs or perceptions on those issues.
Divided into working groups, the boys discussed the issue and answered a questionnaire on European identity and the results were then presented to all participants during a plenary session.
It was possible to verify the level of knowledge of youth on twinning activities in the area and were collected moods and proposals on active citizenship, European identity and twinning programs.
The results of the plenary discussion will be shared with other partners of the INTACT project and will form an “owned” basis for all the institutions involved in the definition of new activities in international cooperation and twinning.
