“Giving voice to young people about European Union issues” (EU Radio) is a project that seeks to give voice to 18 young Europeans (16 to 22 years old) from Bulgaria, Italy and Spain. The project will take the form from a radio program, in order to give voice to young people in the following issues: (1) migration/refugees; (2) political participation; (3) economic crisis; (4) anti-Europeanism; and (5) EU in the world.The generation of radio programs where young people can express their views on major European issues pursues the following: (1) increase their sense of belonging to the European Union (European citizenship and European values); (2) empower them to be active civic-political agents in their communities; (3) increase their successfully integration into European society and the EU labor market; (4) propose solutions to the problems that the European Union and youth face nowadays.In order to achieve all this, the project includes the implementation of a youth exchange in Salamanca (Spain). The exchange will be implemented fully in the context of a radio studio (developing various types of radio programs: editorials, news, interviews, radio spots, magazines and opinion).
