KA1 MOBILITY OF YOUTH WORKERS UNDER ERASMUS+ PROGRAM

The Non-profit Association

“Institute Perspectives”

Invites you for project -

‘’The youth, as defenders of European values ‘’

DESCRIPTION: 

In 2015 a lot of events with no analogue in recent years have happened in Europe and in other parts of the world. For instance the war in Ukraine, the financial crisis in Greece, the war in Syria, Arab spring, terrorist attacks in Paris and etc. As a result the refugee flow to the EU member states repeatedly increased, taking in account the Financial World Crisis from 2007, from which many EU member states still have not succeeded to overcome it, and also if we add the high rates of unemployment amongst youths, which according to Eurostat’s data from 2014 it adds up to 5.5 millions of permanently unemployed ones. And here the alarming question arises: Will the EU succeed to manage with these difficulties?

These problematic situations, are in favour of the formation of extremely
right- wing nationalist movements and political parties, which in their pre-election campaigns clearly promote leaving EU.

Big part of the youth could be fascinated of the extremely right-wing political formations’ ideas. To decrease their influence, we have to take measures to protect European Union’s future. During the project we will carry out an inquiry, through which we will analyze the point of view of 1000 youths from EU. We will execute training in Svishtov, Bulgaria and we will train 36 defenders of "European values". We will compose a manual of the "young defender of European values" we will also organize 36 public initiatives in 10 European states, by which we will show that we, the youth, support the European integration of our countries.
