Title: Small municipalities against Euroscepticism
Summary
There is an everlasting growth of euroscepticism in today's European society. The goal of this project is to examine and debate rural euroscepticism. Through public debates citizens will actively state their doubts on the EU and future. An active involvement of the young will be present in the project as youngsters will present examples of good practice and outline the benefits of EU policies and main achievements. Conclusions will be made with guidelines on dealing with euroscepticism. Awareness will be raised in the local community about the importance of values the EU promotes and active citizenship will be fostered. The project includes 6 events with 4 public debates. The approximate debate program has special aims: 1. LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD: Firstly, gather citizens and let them express their opinions, concerns and expectations on the European Union. The goals of this section is to find out how euroscepticism manifests (through criticism, phobia) and types of eurosceptics, reasons for its development and dangers. 2. SMUG FOR EU: Secondly, volunteers (mostly the young) will present examples of good practice, demonstrate the benefits of EU policies and funding possibilities which can improve the standard of living in local and national areas. The main goal is to prove how many suspicions lack foundation. This will support the strengthening of EU identity. 3. EU POSITIVE: Finally, conclusions will be made on the results of every debate. Guidelines will be made at the end of the project for the EU on how to deal with eurosceptics with positive impact, how to move closer to citizens to gain their trust and ensure a positive future. This will be directed to greater instances (regional, national, EU level). Also, a network will be established between partners to battle euroscepticism, especially through examples of good practice in volunteering organizations (Community fire departments, Women's rights associations, associations of the young and elderly, etc.).
