20 young people coming from France, Finland, Scotland, Belgium and Germany will spend 11 days together in May 2016 in Clermont-Ferrand in order to explore the idea of European citizenship. This Youth Exchange will take place during the celebrations which are part of the "Month of Europe" and in this way the participants will be able to link the results of their project to this event. Together the participants will discuss what Europe means to them and the different concepts of European citizenship that exist. In this way, we hope that they will become more aware of Europe and will choose to be active and responsible citizens. As a team they will create tools for raising awareness of European citizenship, including a wall mural and several activities which will enable them to present their feelings regarding citizenship to the general public of Clermont-Ferrand.The participants will also have the chance to discover the region through cultural trips and outdoor activities such as hiking.The young people will be encouraged to share experiences and thus understand each other better during the entirety of the project. They will be able to use the tools which they create during the project in their home countries so as to disseminate the results of the project further.The group will be led using non-formal education principles so as to actively involve all the young people. Their inclusion in the local area will be enhanced by meeting local people and organisations.During the project, we expect there to be a wide impact on the different populations of Clermont-Ferrand, regardless of age, and also on the different audiences of the participating organisations and the families of the participants.
