Title: TOGETHER IN THE FUTURE EU: CHILDREN'S VOICES
Summary
Project for creation of active European citizenship among elementary school children “Together in the future EU: Children’s Voices” connects children from Croatian and Serbian local communities with the aim of education, exchange of opinions and values and creation of long-lasting friendships and long-term cooperation. Project expands current relations between City of Vodnjan and Municipality of Blace, by which the linkage between our local communities is directed towards creation of mutual trust and partnership and confirmed with the signing of Twinning Charter as part of the project. Project is determined to extend our cooperation, and, by connecting the children, to create sincere friendships of our local communities and our citizens. With the twinning we want to create mutual developmental and educational environment of our partnership while simultaneously acknowledging the fact that EU policies, legislation and activities have daily effect on the lives of children in the EU and among the world. The way in which Europe treats its children determines its future, and the project recognizes the fact that EU objectives focused on sustainable and inclusive growth cannot be realized without respect for children’s rights and investment in their future. Through organization of the meeting we are creating activities which are strengthening the dialogue between citizens, with special focus on children, and we are developing tools which bring closer the concept of EU and strengthen European identity between this populations. Moreover, we are bringing closer children from nations with war history, by which we are directly targeting the reduction of xenophobia and promotion of tolerance, we are transferring experience and knowledge about EU from the EU member state to accession country, and with innovative methods we are processing the theme of EU citizenship, children’s rights and position of children in EU as well as influence which European Union has on their daily life
