Project description:

The “Next STEP to Europe” project is a sequel to the “First STEP to Europe” project. Like its first version, the project aims to increase young people’s awareness of participation, democracy, the functioning of the European Union and its future. Other topics covered by the project include climate and environment, and even disinformation.

Project goals:

-Raising youth awareness of the European Union

-Discussion on the future of the EU

-Creating an informed and educated society

-Familiarizing young people with important topics such as democracy, solidarity, climate, environment, disinformation

-Dialogue on the essence of democratic participation

Main activities:

-Eco-Festival – outside event regarding ecology, including discussions, debates, exhibitions, eco-actions

-Meetings in Poland, Spain, Italy and Greece

-UNconference – the unconference format creates space for peer-to-peer learning, collaboration, creativity and increase engagement as attendees provide the topics. This type of conference is entirely participant driven, so young people themselves will choose what they want to talk about. Discussions, working in groups, presentations, open space.

-Study visits
