Town Twinning to celebrate the European Year for Volunteerism


The project promotes a long lasting network between the EU municipalities on the theme of active citizenship and volunteering, in order to facilitate the exchange of experiences, networking, implementation of new projects and promote the concept and values of voluntary work in Europe.

The project focus in particular on the active role that youth can act at local level trough voluntary activities and the importance and value that the voluntary activities have for the local community. The partners will reflect on their young citizens as a priority resource that must be evaluate at local level and must be actively involved in training and voluntary activities. The debate will be centred on voluntarism as occasion of active youth training, as occasion of active involvement in the local community, as important factor of active citizenship an personal responsibility. The scope of the project is to promote a first exchange of ideas and concrete ongoing activities in order to define future concrete joint voluntarism projects between partners. During the envisaged project events each partner will present to the others the best voluntary projects developed at local level ant its own strategy to promote voluntarism. The partners municipalities will also deepen the possible synergies and wider multiplier effect that can be achieved through the cooperation with private non profit organisations at local level. Finally the project is the occasion to sign the official town twinning between Oggiono (IT) and Halasztelek (HU) and the occasion to sign a work protocol on voluntarism between all the participating Municipalities.
