Youth Empowerment- BE PART OF IT
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: Jan 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

This dialog brought together people from Greece, Italy, Spain and Austria. The dialog took place in Innsbruck at the "Bildungshaus Seehof". We discussed and worked with the opportunities, the pros/cons and the needs/requests of the youngsters in their daily life specially working life. The Young participants were able to express their opinions about democracy and decision making processes in order to make their voice heard by policy makers at different levels. The Youngsters had the opportunity to discuss with other youngsters from different cultures and policy makers about their needs and interests in their life/country. Our read line through this Project was the Motto: "Youth Empowernment-BE PART OF IT" We tried to give the participants the understanding that countries, cultures and realities may be different due to different facts (religion, language, economy, social life and values) but that young people are united obviously through a common EUROPE. They had the chance to "smell international air" and to understand differences and similarities of history and culture in Europe . This project strengthen participants´ sense of European citizenship by allowing them to discuss common issues, to learn how these are approached in each country and at the European level , to work in mixed nationality teams and to develop friendships. They understood, through experience, the importance of cooperation and exchange across borders and the value of being able to share ideas and experience with people who are different yet also similar to themselves. We are sure that everybody realised that Europe offers great potential for their own future opportunities.
