Great success for the new project “Youth for EU”, coordinated by the Local Democracy Agency from Brtonigla and dedicated to the youngsters aged from 16 to 26 years.
The first activities of the project, a cycle of the seminars about EU institutions, about the official annexing of Croatia to the EU and about the opportunities that are awaiting us after 1 July , involved 257 students from nine high schools in Croatia.
The initiative, which is taking part in the Regions Istria, Sisak-Moslavina e Osijek-Baranja, is financed by the European union within the IPA Info 2011 programme.
The main activities of the project, officially started in January 2013, are diverse and will be developed on several levels: from workshops and conferences to the active participation of the young people involved. Currently, we have completed the cycle of seminars in the Italian high school of Buje, Pula and Rovinj as well as in several high schools in Osijek, Sisak and Topusko, while are still going on the seminars for the youth associations in the three Regions.
Among all this youngsters, after completing an “EU quiz” about the topics presented during the seminars, will be chosen the 30 participants for the EU camp which will take place in Istria in September. During the camp – which will offer workshops, seminars and debates – the participants will create and realize a TV spot and a radio programme (that will be broadcast by local TV and radio stations of the three Regions involved) in order to inform the citizens about Europe especially in such important period for Croatia. After coming back from the camp the youngsters will organize one conference in every Region. During these meetings there will be collected opinions, issues and desires that will be put into a unique document named “The Voice of Youth”, which will be given to the representatives of regional authorities during a final open event.
ALDA is partner of the project, together with the Local Democracy Agencies from Osijek and Sisak, Zaklada za poticanje partnerstva i razvoja civilnog društva, Croatian Environmental Press Centre, K.R.I.D. youth association from Petrinja, Europe Direct Trieste and Giosef Italy.
