Programme: Europe for Citizens
Identifier: 555616-CITIZ-1-2014-1-IT-CITIZ-NT
Title: Inter-cultural Dimension for European Active Citizenship
Summary
Considered the alarmingly low turnout rate in EU elections in some countries where voting is not compulsory and the democratic deficit it causes across Europe, the present project aims to restore electoral faith among EU citizens. It will address the four main causes for low electoral participation found in collaboration with the project partners: - lack of interest and of knowledge of the democratic workings of the EU- mistrust towards EU institutions-lack of sense of belonging to Europe.The project will be coordinated by the Municipality of Geraci (IT). 12 partner countries will be involved, including some of those with a low turnout rate for a more effective outreach, SI(20%), PL(22%), HU(29%), PT(34,5%) and BU (35,5%). The project consists of 13 local workshop and 4 international events taking place in IT, HU, DE and PL. It will involve directly over 400 citizens, experts, students, local stakeholders and decision makers. Main target group are young citizens (under 25) - as the low turnout level appears to be a permanent generational effect and citizens (under 65). During the 18 months project activities , the participants involved into the 4 international events will be encouraged to share experiences, best practices and opinions through activities caracterized by different methodologies (workshop, seminar, role play, use of interactive technology, open debates) during which it will be experienced the importance of active participation and cooperation within the EU and it will be encouraged the active participation in the democratic life. Main goals are:• To give to citizens the opportunity to interact in the construction of an even closer and democratic Europe, thus fostering the active EU citizenship; • To develop long-lasting cooperation between towns and citizens by creating a platform aiming at improving the civic and democratic participation at local and EU level;• To generate the increase of the percent of voters to the next elections.
