Promoting a responsible citizenship among university students. (Europe)
The project, financed by the European Union, initiated discussions last year with university students who shared ideas and approaches on two main issues: 1) how to build and promote active and responsible citizenship in Europe and 2) what should be their common elements. The project includes a survey, in order to deepen the level of awareness among the youth about key features of European citizenship.
The project were developed in five European cities with an interactive and participatory approach (London, Rome, San Sebastian, Warsaw and final event in Brussels). The students have analyzed and discussed on four topics in each international meeting: 1 - Cultural diversity, immigration and Solidarity, 2 - Basic values (with particular Attention to Those Transmitted and created by the media), 3 - Democracy and civic participation, Including overview on the European Parliamentary elections, 4 - Volunteering and intergenerational relations.
The results of the project was "The Charter of Responsible Citizenship" which was presented in the final event, Brussels (june 2010).
