Be Active-Be European

8 – 14 April 2024

Rezekne, Latvia

About the project

The project „Be active – Be European“ is designed to empower youth workers in the mission of countering Euroscepticism and inspiring active involvement among young Europeans in the upcoming 2024 European Elections.

We aim to discuss between partners the vital role of youth in EU civic engagement and to raise awareness about the challenges posed by Euroscepticism. Additionally, we would like to explore how the European Parliament works, how do EU policies emerge, how significant are EU Elections, and what are the notable achievements of the EU.

Moreover, during this seminar we seek to equip youth workers with the knowledge and tools to effectively prepare young citizens and first-time voters for the 2024 European Elections. Throughout our collaborative efforts, participants will engage in informative sessions, share experiences, and explore the positive impacts of the EU on its citizens.
