Our project created with the aim to deepen and make an enhancement of democratic values , human rights and European citizenship. In the current context where the economic crisis may be the breeding ground for the rise of totalitarianism and anti-democratic at the same time you anti-European ideologies , we want to work in the opposite direction . We want the participants in our project value over both democracy and human rights and the European Union through the learning and knowledge of the previous stages and struggles that had to be overcome in each country to get to enjoy a consolidated democratic system . We also seek to involve young people in the detection of its major problems and in solving them. Through the so-called " snowball effect " each participant try out strengthened in its democratic thoughts and decide to get involved in the sustainability of the same in their society and decide to improve their participation . We're sure those forty participants from eight different countries will in turn infect those wanting to get involved and generate solutions after more than a good number of young people in their countries democratic quality.From our work of spreading we seek two main objectives, and why we have put a lot of effort in and we will carry it out correctly with our partners. The first, is to reach as many people as possible to make them reflect on the chosen topic. Therefore , we chose 5 distant countries together which will multiply the impact of the activity and go further.
