Learn About The EU
Project “Counter Euroscepticism with Your Vote” was designed to address the rising Euroscepticism and distrust of national governance structures which demotivate people to participate in the voting process. Turnout in the European Parliament elections 2014 was 43% and in 2019 was 51%, however in many EU countries the turnout was still below 30%. Many different studies showed that knowledge is one of the key points to increase the understanding of EU processes. Where was it shown that the majority of people who understand the EU processes, are familiar with EU institutions and recognize the EU commissioners and other stakeholders are in favour of the EU. The project’s aims where:
- To encourage EU citizens to make their voice count,
- Built the capacity of young people to participate actively in the democratic life of Europe,
- Counter Euroscepticism with EU dialogue and discussion on forward-looking initiatives for the future of Europe,
- Educate young people about EU values and history of EU.
To reach our aims we created a short program were participants cant learn the basic information about: EU values, EU funding agreements and EU institutions.
