“EU is your right” is a 7-days youth exchange will involve 30 young people coming from Italy, Estonia, Poland, Romania, Slovenia and Lithuania. It aims at investigating how young people perceive their sense of belonging to the European Union. The European citizenship as one of the strongest instrument at forging a common identity was one of the biggest news introduced by the Treaty of Maastricht. But after 20 years from its coming into effect, the statistical data show that the society has currently a little perception of the rights and opportunities linked to be European citizens. Therefore, the exchange aims at working with young people in order to: - encourage and promote their European citizenship; - making them aware of the rights linked to the European citizenship by especially promoting their informed, active and inclusive participation in the European political and social life; - present the European Union as a big hub of opportunities in order to respond to the several challenges they have to face, first of all youth unemployment. The project thus aims at contributing to build new young European citizens able to exercise their rights and benefit of them and of the opportunities offered by the EU that can concretely contribute to their social and professional empowerment. The exchange will propose an “all inclusive” formula which will combine theoretical knowledge, practical examples of European citizenship and, workshops during which the participants will try to identify their possible “role” in the European Union as well as the “role” of the European Union in their life.
